Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


It must have been March when we both strayed
But then, I refused to warm fire’s glow
When bitter words raged and scarred my eyes;
Though pleading sorry, I shunned Kate’s hello.

Yet at nights when laughter used to bubble
I knew my gall of pride kept us apart
And missed our years graced by friendship’s bliss,
Surviving rain and daylight of love’s heart.

Ringing her door to offer sincere peace
My bones ripped like tiny splinters of hay;
She had left far off, my amends too late
Choking from void, on my birthday.

    Nette, I really like this one. At first I almost believed it was a sonnet I was reading. It's sweet and lyrical. So this is your best friend maybe? Hope you two can make up.

    If they value you, they'll return. If you value them, they'll stay. This is a very emotionally gripping piece.

I've had some friends that through distance we have fallen apart and I still miss their presence, so I know the heavy feeling you express within this poem!
