Sunlight Sonnet

The grasp of sunlight tugs at my weak heart

Its beacon cannot hoist me up from here

Within my depths, unsettling whirlwinds start

For immortal moments, I’m lost to fear

 

Sunlight, where for art thou shining so bright

Why do you betray with languid laughter

Moonlight, relieve the joy of day. And night,

Conduct my song of darkness hereafter

 

Memories murder me my peaceful sleep

Only nightfall is as hollow as I

For wrung out is my soul of tears to weep

Nocturnal singer, howl your tearless cry!

 

I am a cast off creature of the gloom

Awaiting my love rendezvous, come doom

 

James Hall – May 14th, 2006

      Thanks for the reads. Wrote this at the end of high school. I wrote “O Let him Live” just a few days ago. If you haven’t read that one you might like it.
