Sonnet of Darkness

Sonnet of Darkness

My lips whisper sweet nothings
My eyes keep cloudless skies
My head is full of daydreams
My heart holds butterflies

But in my darkest moments
When winter haunts my days
My feelings conjure tempests
Breaking my merry ways

But still, you love me madly
It tears me up inside
To know, I make you suffer
You never question why

My heart tells tales of meadows
That soothe the saddest souls
Exhibiting my hopes and dreams
Avoiding my black hole

But then, the nightmares enter
Chasing my joy away
My light ceases to blossom
All happiness decays

But still, you hold me closer
Resisting savage storms
Returning me to paradise
Healing our love once more

My love reads like the seasons
Blowing from hot to cold
An inconsistent paradise
Seen through a fixed blindfold

Please know, within my nightmares
My heart loves endlessly
You are my loyal lighthouse
Shining on stormy seas

You guide me back to safety
Inviting me to shore
Returning me to paradise
To love you evermore

The frailty of a broken mind
Can test the strongest bonds
Hold on with all you have to give
In tempests, love lives on
