If Ever

If ever pain shall strike my wounded soul,
my consolation is you are my cloak
Your calming presence mending any hole,
protecting me from chills it might invoke

If ever moon and tide shall be at war,
and convolutes my tattered, wrinkled mind
I’ll plunge it deep into your ocean floor
of soothing words, ‘til sweetest peace I find

If ever sun shall fall upon its death,
my only prayer is that you'll be with me
For light within your heart is like my breath,
and this will last me for eternity

I know that life shall cease for me one day
But love, ah love, forever it shall stay...


--English sonnet; iambic pentameter :)

--nikko palmario :)

**thanks so much to Kash for the heads up on the syllables, and also to Jack for "it", and also to Sara and Carrie for your insights :)'s looking better now, thank you!!

again many thanks as well for all who's passed by and left inspiring comments :D; Debbie, I nudged the comma & tweaked that other line and Andrea, thanks so much for the additional wonderful suggestions-- sorry I am a bit stubborn with some of the lines ;)

    As Craig said in the end outside of the contest you should go with your gut as to the best version, but we are writers and we are capable of many incarnations of the same write ;) Line 3 [a LONE PATCHes] find a substitute for [patches that begins with an unstressed syllable {rePAIRS}/ as to the last line I would simply move the comma [But LOVE, ah LOVE, for EV er IT shall STAY] iambic pentameter 5 groupings of [unstress STRESS] Light & Love!

    Who cares how perfect this is in form and whatever! The important thing is that it is perfectly beautiful and heart rendering and to me it is a wow! Also we all wish that someone would have half those feelings for us!!!!!!!! However poetically challenged I may be...

    Aww, shucks, thanks so much Craig for such a heartwarming review, I'm just smiling so much right now :)
  1. Date: 2/2/2012 1:12:00 PM

    Lovely sonnet, Nikko. I guess it could be 'but love, ah, love, it shall forever stay' to get in the extra unstressed syllable. Beautiful piece. Thanks - enjoyed the contest : ) My wife Sue laughed as much as I did about your poo jokes, LOL

    Ahhh Nikko! Is there anything you cannot write that isn't outstanding?? What a heart melting sonnet! I don't think anyone could improve on your own words, other than the one syllable that Kash found with his keen eyes! Nice!!!
