The Sorrows of a Miscarriage -Sonnet
Tears of an Unborn Child
She was enamoured of a charming man,
He was more then besotted with her too.
Years later they meet where their love began,
To recite their vows and then say “I do.”
Fast forward another couple of years,
They are expecting a bundle of joy.
Birth complications are worse then she fears,
Gone are the man’s wife and his baby boy.
A month has passed by, there’s no money left,
And if he is not drunk then he is high.
His wife and child he tries to forget,
But the nights still filled with his endless cries.
He can’t take the pain, this abhorrent life,
He takes pills to reunite with his wife.
