Love Sonnet 222: 'When All The Joys Conspired To Leave Your Heart'
When all the joys conspired to leave your heart,
And turned all colors that you see to gray,
Your dreams dissolved, each one, its every part,
You were now strangers heading each your way;
That road that faded on a bend hid her,
You wished her figure reappears again,
Though not today, too soon, as so it were,
For even if wounds heal, you won't know when;
And yet, you know, amidst the wintry cold,
Half of the world is warm where hearts rejoice,
Where joy replaces glum, as often told,
And sorrow has to go without a choice;
.... In ...
Shackled monster that lurks in every heart,
Of such ferocious guile yet ever found,
To smile the pain, deftly playing its part,
So docile and courtly until unbound.
With eyes, so green, and spiteful as it goes,
Deceitful of mien, posing meek as dove,
Able to thrive in ranks of friends and foes,
But scheming worst, by burning hearts that love.
Contained and yet, to rage wildest in some,
