Live (a sonnet)

I wrote this a year ago and I can’t believe I never posted it here before! I really enjoyed rereading this a year later and remembering everything I was thinking/feeling as I wrote it.

It seems like

Every road I travel

Has always led me back to this

Back to where I started

When I started to live

When I started to live

With you in my life

Painful endings are just

Interludes to the life we share

I never thought we’d wind up back here

But I realize

Everything I thought that

I was doing to

Forget you

Was just leading me

Right back to you

Destiny was telling us

We started to live

Do you believe it?

That fate has us all

Wrapped in its velvet chains

Captured like

Sparrows

We try and try to fly

Away

But we always come back to

The nest

Painful endings are just

Interludes to the life we share

I never thought we’d wind up back here

But I realize

Everything I thought that

I was doing to

Forget you

Was just leading me

Right back to you

Destiny was telling us

We started to live

Bleeding hearts

That never heal

Do we really want them to?

Words that mean nothing

To you

Mean something

To me

Angel, tell me

Why were you sent here?

Just to make me feel like I can

Live

Painful endings are just

Interludes to the life we share

I never thought we’d wind up back here

But I realize

Everything I thought that

I was doing to

Forget you

Was just leading me

Right back to you

Destiny was telling us

We started to live
