That Slow, Somber Tune

That Slow, Somber Tune

A Poem by Emma Kirchhoff
"

A sonnet I have attempted to write in Iambic Pentamiter, feel free to correct me on anything.

"
I cannot bear a burden such as this
Every fault of mine bustles through my head
Among the dreams of death's bittersweet kiss
A soul cloaked in darkness, heart cold and dead
The rain that falls against the window pane
Beats a slow and somber tune, just for me
Everyone tells me my thoughts are not sane
But how would they know, for they cannot see
It's not long now, theres nothing for me here
I will not stay bound to this emptiness
I want to be released from all my fear
So I plunge the dagger into my chest
As all I have known fades into the black
What would I give to put the dagger back?

A interesting poem.
"So I plunge the dagger into my chest
As all I have known fades into the black

I liked the ending. Nice to end poem with question and wild place. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
