Sonnet: Formerly Known As Love

I can no longer hold you in my heart

The last touch, last kiss, I am torn apart. 

I love only memory, time now past,

To be with you now would leave me aghast.


Yet you won’t leave my mind, your face, your smell

Our last words spoken my personal hell.

I will never forget that piercing glare

Looking away I could still feel them stare. 


Judgement, resentment, a harrowing hate

Hindsight makes me ask, “But why did I wait?”

I waited for love, a desire to stay

By your side, yet you chose to cast away.


All that we had, and all that we had done

A memory now, a former loved one.
