Here in This My Labyrinth of Darkness by Manatita
Here in this my labyrinth of darkness,
I face the rapids of a dark lagoon.
I’m all alone and sad; I must confess,
I feel my chains would not be broken soon.
No summer sheds a light upon my plight,
I face the wrathful shadows of the night.
While autumns’ now a distant memories land,
And springs unlikely to arrive at dawn.
I slowly feel my winters’ discontent,
The heavy damp no help in my dismay.
No shelter; warmth; I sink in my dissent,
I dread the night amidst the python day.
Hope now eludes, what was a charming guy,
She broke my heart, abandoned me to die.
(Sonnet. Penultimate end)
But hark! An angel of the Light, perchance?
Just came to give this me a second chance?
“My husband, Dear, let us go on.” She said.
Eyes now awake to roses strewn in red.
Which ending do you like most?
