Within Stone, Writhing Silently To Step On Out, Sonnet Doubles

(1.) Deep Within Woes Of Love's First Dying Breath Lost, I am not there, you can not reach me woe, dark and naked- all life is not fair tho' heavy blows hurt, they do not teach me nor my rebellion prove I do not care. What cost, does battling iron hard life gain woe, will not victory's breath life thus save man's heart from torn soul, fated shards of pain in raging wrath, I slay dear hope I crave! Morn's frost, its gem glows, penetrate my haze woe, dare I entreat its whispering calls in my own retreat, cast aside love's craze storm the dark castle, burn its wicked halls! Lost, I am not there, you can not reach me. Tho' heavy blows hurt, they do not teach me! Robert J. Lindley, June 1975, April 19th 2020 Sonnet, ( Stand Vigilant, Against That Dark Wind That Forever Blows ) Edited and rewritten for sonnet doubles..

Within Stone, Writhing Silently To Step On Out, Sonnet Doubles Within stone, writhing silently to step on out not to atone but rather to cry and loud shout on sorrows born of paths blind to reality, falsehoods created by man's ingenuity! Within dark winds, churning up ghastly gusts of hurts nothing defends, raging evils in gushing spurts or those pains birthing deep searing relentless aches shattering love as its romantic passions break! Within dying lights, remnants of hope and regrets can woes, shortness of life be as good as it gets echoes of nights, shades of Poe's pain in black abyss and weeping tears remind of that last goodbye kiss! Within stone, writhing silently to step on out. Not to atone but rather to cry and loud shout. Robert J. Lindley, 4-19-2020 Sonnet, ( Within The Maddening Cries Of Needless Death And Loss ) Written for sonnet doubles..

Thank you my friend. " Tho' heavy blows hurt, they do not teach me!" Yes, truth in the telling. I have never responded well to force. Nobody has ever been able to make me bow to their injustices they have tried to heap upon me! I fight and never stop until I rid myself of such attackers and their insane hatred and utter stupidity. God bless..

Crafted with deft and great competence. How strongly you've assailed with the vanguard you've established. Most impressive, fine poet.
