New Tear Sonnets - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN
Noon dark as winter solstice misty rain
Eyes wax though waining, twin moons steer
Wet race to trace tears pace face out of gear.
Trouble bubbles, sadness assumes harsh reign.
Empty within. Without: what bitter pain
Adds dank to thankless destiny austere,
Reacts to disappointment deadly drear.
Serenity's effaced as last hopes wain,
Overdrawn account, heart can't obtain
New lease, though dew release rolls heedless here,
Notes no bright spot, event horizon clear.
Expelled is brine as lines show lifelines vain.
Tears course down, flow to show red rims aware
Streams dreams devour, grief no relief can share.
Now here, now fled, light bright's soon snuffed, clock ticks,
Existence fragile echoes with life’s play
Where visibility’s trimmed to today.
Time up, ambitions down, as once waxed wicks
Expire upon some midnight cold Fate picks.
A month or more, before horizons grey
Reduce tired final flickers cinder gay, -
Spendthrift embers. Moving finger pricks
Out bubble options, cares nor fiddlesticks
Nor tinker’s curse for chances thrown away,
Nor seeks reprieve for an extended stay.
Ephemeral our sojourn’s augenblicks.
Tears well yet all's not well, grief's well is plumbed,
Scene set for upset to heartache succumbed.
