A Poem by Justin Littlefield

All those years gone, I bear this broken bond.
Youth is lost, left with curs’d thoughts contrite.
I believed we belonged… so fond beyond,
but died while lying next to you at night. 
Forlorn, in a fierce fire of ire--reborn,
Marring the traits which meant the most to me.
Lovelorn. I mock the troths by which I’ve sworn
What wasted wealth of words in laud to thee. 
Loyalty and trust have become disgust
Ne’er dole shall I mewl more to treachery.
Through lust, I’ve learned what beats beneath your bust,
Ye angel, spoiling lewd with lechery.
I’ve tasted every portion of your skin,
and lived within your dripping den of sin.

A lovely dark sonnet with deep intense emotions spilling forth..

Quite dark. Took me a second read to fully understand. Nice use of old english language. Your enjabments also allows the poem to really flow.
