Dark – A Sonnet

shutterstock_271969892The darkest days ever met

Perish in response to kindness shown

Even faced with love now flown,

And a heart twisted in regret

For what was never said, never done;

The heat and softness of understanding

Make for me the safest landing

For a heart bereft of one.

So what has become of my sorrowful night?

Scorn still burns in coppery flecks

Raining upon pride and shame,

Dignity, positivity and right;

But all true possessions of my fair sex

Though altered, remain the same.
