It Dawns on Me

======================================== I wake up next to no one right at dawn to check for late night texts that don't exist The paperboy throws news toward the lawn and moves on, even though he knows he missed I (yawning) fight to brush the blues away but when I touch my eyes, I find them wet God! I could not foresee the dawning day when you would leave for someone you just met We've been together since the dawn of man but looking back, it's clear that things weren't great Im cooking, but here I turn from the pan to stare at my reflection in a plate You're gone. And as my breakfast burns to black, it dawns on me that I don't want you back ======================================== 07/22/2018

A tragic lost love sonnet but with an empowering closing couplet, Lycia. Like Taai, I love the nuanced used of the word dawn and the great emotional imagery.. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan
