Let My Tombstone Read

Here lies a women dead before her time
Struck down by guided arrows dipped in rhyme
A wound that first was sweet but turned to vile 
It slowly sapped her strength and stole her smile

The words all worked their way down to her heart
Like chamber maids, each word then played a part
At first adoring, then they turned to be
The pseudo kind of love: hypocrisy  

They mocked, and they abused her steadfast love
Made her to feel naïve, a helpless dove
Betrayals words they whispered in her ear
And made her fear the dreaded end was near

“Let tombstone read the truth not blatant lie:
'All those who trust in love in pain will die'."

Eileen Manassian

    It hurts me when you feel abused and when suspicion strikes soul. This sonnet is a storm, and so skillfully written! Let those who know of love live to fly...your hurt envelopes my nerves, yet I know your heart knows love's wings my Beloved Poetess...J.A.B.

    This has a strong message and I believe it..Those who trust in love in pain will die...I love that line most. Eileen ,it is sad when we are adorned by beautiful words to later find out someone we believed in ,turns to be nothing but a hypocrat who doesnt truly love us. This touch deep lady..Am gonna favour it.
