“Sonnet to Deception”


“Sonnet to Deception”

This lover’s tale is one that’s beastly bold.

His eyes are like a glowing, singing choir

as near her hearth, his craft of wanton fire.

He captures soon her heart; his lies unfold.

So slips the frenzied man with brazen soul

into the innocent lured by the liar.

And in his craftiness but one desire;

to take her; then to crush her in the cold.

Now blows the winter’s rain against the pane.

Now, nothing gained but ashes in the grate.

Now crying and a tapping heard again;

he’s searching for the same unblemished fate.

Naivete is halted and is slain

as now she listens; not with love, but hate.

    I love the rhythm of this sonnet. With his ways, it’s no wonder she ends up hating him.
