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?
