Love Sonnet 229: 'when Trophies Rained Upon My Neighbor's Yard' - Poem by Reyvrex Questor Reyes

When trophies rained upon my neighbor's yard,  
With not a trickle spilling down my lawn,
 Seems that misfortune fell on me so hard,  
Thru nights of darkness without hints of dawn;  
Time pelted me with woes that I can't shake,  
To fill my cup to fullness ever since 
That day, this yoke my shoulders vowed to take,  
That all my brows, with saline sweats would rinse;  
But lifeline bridged the sea, cast from your hands,  
To fetch this castaway from raging waves,  
At last in your embrace I found dry lands,  
Your eyes, the guiding stars this sailor craves;  
..... Let trophies rain, but love is what I've sought,  
..... Or else, the sunshine, bright, that your love brought.

Topic(s) of this poem: envy, failure, lost love, love
