Once more forsaken

Stop my heart from weeping, crying love’s rain,
come hither at least in my daydream haze,
to feel for another, to stop the pain,
desiring to attract your loving gaze.
Perhaps not the beauty of innocence,
but that of kindness, although long taken,
forbidden, but in search of condolence,
the minds rationality was shaken.
Yet the heart needed mending, for all else,
the whispering heart could not be mended.
But naive was the youthful zeal, so false,
acts of lust not to be comprehended.

Leading with haste to a wrong course taken,
to suffer again, once more forsaken.

YOu are so good with a sonnet, my friend. For some reason, I was thinking it was difficult for me to find poems of yours I'd not already read. But I am able to find them down near the bottom of your page. I must have mixed you up with another poet whose pages I had completely read!

Thank you very much, Andrea, for taking the time to read my earlier posts. At some stage I will start re-writing these sonnets to practice writing them using Iambic Pantemeter. Remember that most of these sonnets are based on events in my life. T.J

Love shall find its way given the chance T.J. I am proof of this point, believe me. Another well written Sonnet my friend. As always, your silken words float across the page and into the heart. One can feel the sadness T.J. Another beautiful Sonnet my friend. May your pen keep running gold. Keep singing from the heart as you do....Vladislav. A seven and a fave my friend.

Thank you for your kind comments, seven, fave and support, Vladislav. Yes, I am also proof that given the chance love shall find its way. For me it took a long time, but in the end love did reign. If a reader can feel the sadness, then I have succeeded in conveying my message. T.J
