Humble heart naked like a winter tree, yearns for seasons to remain evergreen. Furtive eyes have disturbed this reverie, soul stands still like nonchalant figurine. Walking away to leave one heartbroken, her shallow soul left no apology. Regret kills the tongue from words unspoken, lost are lyrics from our anthology. Wounds so deep, nerves drown in crimson fluid, tears bleed sorrows lost to words poetic. Ink seeks metaphors to show whats ruined, so the heart feels peace like an ascetic. In the midst of pain, veiled scars do not fade, constant reminder of all mistakes made. The Silent One 17 January 2018
Inspired by John Hamilton's English Sonnet lost love contest. (not for contest) 1 original, poem on the theme of Lost love Sonnet form only is acceptable. Must be an English sonnet 10 syllables per line Rhyme scheme ABAB CDCD EFEF GG Must use these words somewhere in the poem, no specific order. 1. Furtive 2. Nonchalant 3. Humble 4. Shallow 5. Ascetic My criteria for scoring each worth 10 points 1. Structure(rhyme, syllable count) 2. Flow 3. Emotive (must make me feel something) 4. Vocabulary Unique word pairings or words seldom used in poetry. Potential 40 points perfect score acheived only once before in my 2 and a half years here. Write me a beauty! Enjoy!!

Silent One, I don't think I can add much to all these wonderful comments...and every one is spot on. My poor efforts are very pale in comparison. A beautiful piece.

Another moving masterpiece. You can take any word or thought and spin into your own stylistically sensational sentence.

Such a soul stirring sonnet Silent One. A moving and emotional write, I feel the beautiful melancholy expressed and a potent final couplet too - and 'Love Hurts' one of my favorite songs when I was a freshman in high school many many years ago.. thanks for bringing that classic back.. A wonderfully written sonnet my friend ~Susan

Thank you Laura, will not be entering the contest, just wanted to give it a go..

lost are minds that do not work....soft are the eyes that do flirt....strong is the heart that wont give up....long is the way the confident do strut....cries haunt the one whose first response is violence....wise is the one who freely chooses silence....my brother, i am glad to see you still holding it down for the soup....great work here....

Never heard much of Nazareth after "Love Hurts" ... But an everlasting song indeed...May try to write a love lost poem, although I haven't lost any...
