Sonnet VIII. Why Love Stories are Often Sad

Updated on July 14, 2017

World's lone sonnet grandmaster. Shakespeare's Sonnet 1 describes him as “the world’s fresh ornament and only herald to the gaudy spring."

Most people like love stories. So do I!
But my own stories aren't nice to tell.
By sheer perplexity, they're made in Hell.
And, in a way, that's true. You don't know why.

Love stories shouldn't cause our hearts to cry.
But then we have a blasted universe
because of what transpired in higher Spheres
so long ago which culprits can't deny.

Thus love pairs parted in a hostile mode
while others had to trudge love's troubled road.

But I do have a lovely tale of love
though not about my twin flame, sad to say.
"Love Story" was inspired from high Above.
It's Cupid's song for Mother, sang away.
