This is not a Love Poem (the sonnet version)

(I reworked the original in sonnet form for class. Be kind, it’s my first sonnet)

 

You are not my lover, we’re worlds apart.

But there was a time when I floated like

A gleaming star in your universe-heart

And, like hot confetti, comets would strike

 

And flare into space proclaiming our bond.

And the celestial beings in flight

All celebrated, but you were not fond

Of the brash fanfare, not one for the light.

 

And then there were the other stars brightly

Floating into orbit, fighting for space.

Swirling, preening, dancing for you nightly

As you fought to keep us all in our place.

 

I guess there’s nobody really to blame

That after awhile all stars look the same.
