Darkest Of Days (Petrarchan Sonnet)


Slowly we capsize into an ocean of fire
Liquid flames splashing onto our lost ship as it sinks
Drifting into an icy oblivion seeing obliteration’s brink
Tears touch and lips meet as we draw closer to flames bemired
Let us hold each other our flesh becoming one afire
A blaze of moments squandered as fiery ignorance shrinks
Flaming passion turned into icy water of a hearts jinx
Now kiss me harder as we part forever in this bed of fire

Once we two were naked without vulgarity
Our nudity glimpsed only by a heavens eye
Together with time we birthed a child beyond purity’s sigh
The world took our fruit and cast it to fray
Cleansed of our wasted moments sanctity
Here in our darkest of days.

  1. Website looks good Mikial. I just opened an Etsy shop myself. Good luck to you, your artwork is beautiful.

    • I am glad that you noticed that particular aspect of this poem. Usually if I do a poem such as this I try to balance the dark and the light 50/50 however this time I wanted to make only a shard of light enough to stand as a symbol of hope. Sometimes what seems to be a little or insignificant is actually greatness that has gone unrealized.

  2. Beautiful! I have never written a Petrarchan sonnet (I’m so stuck on Shakespearean ones) but must try it now!
