Without Her… (Sonnet)

Without her, the world’s a dark room.
I can’t see life, I don’t see doom.
She’s the cause and cure forย all my troubles,
The light at the end of all my tunnels.

Without her, there’s no life in my stride.
I look for her footsteps, to walk beside.
It seems like a wilderness, while I roam;
She’s not here to hold me, to take me home.

Without her, my nights drown in tears;
My days don’t know frolic from fears.
Bring no love and get me no sympathy,
Gift me my lifeย – just bring her back to me.

I sit motionless in the dark, waiting her arrival;
I can’t see, I can’t breathe, I can’t… She’s my survival.

    1. I second that completely. Pain also brings along a feeling of numbness, so you don’t realise what you’ve written reflects harmony. It is only later, when you are in lesser pain, that you actually read through the words that you’ve written.

      1. Well, lessons in general?? Poetry is not my forte, and I want to learn how to properly write a poem (but I guess there’s no way of writing a poem “properly”). It’s much more complicated than fiction writing, TBH๐Ÿ™„

      2. Well, I guess everyone has their own forte. I find it easier to write poems compared to fiction. I’m never satisfied with my fiction. You’re right when you say there’s no “proper” way of writing a poem – just each one’s own style. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        You don’t need lessons, mate.
        You are doing great.
        The learning you need for your writing sense,
        Will all come from your experience. ๐Ÿ™‚
