The Lost Art
let's revive sonnet writing
A Sonnet To Express
I want to tell the world the way I feel
So everyone can see my cobweb soul;
The way the light refracts is more than real,
And how the parts connect can keep me whole.
But how reflections dance and corners twist
Is far too strange to wrap in pretty words;
I'm terrified the meaning will be missed,
And even as you listen, go unheard.
How can I explain what I have seen
When I, to see it, had to go beyond—
To fall into the feeling space between;
Let go of words and thoughts that correspond.
To go where words can't reach has set me free,
But being seen is locked, with words as key.
