Relationship Sonnet Pair, December 15, 2019 (1/2)
Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
I feel a change is coming in my story;
My heart's blown cold, then hot, from north to west
If I am brave and honest, maybe--glory
Will manifest itself. I'll do my best,
Retaining bound'ries while regaining sympathy,
For my antagonist's grave burdens' weight
Is always on her back. I must have empathy
And feel compassion now instead of hate.
She's struggling to accept me. She is trying
To shift her feelings for me--as they were,
For my persona--to the underlying
Trans woman who I am, revealed to her.
In recent days, I've felt nonplussed; I waver.
What's right to do? Have I a life to savor?
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
