This sonnet was written as a metaphor for my divorce, which was very painful.

Very expressive, and excellent vocabulary. I love anything with the use of 'thy' and 'thou'. vtd

You were right, this is a little dark, but still I like the way the story progresses and holds together.

@TheNimesa I hope you do not feel the "blade" too deeply, smile. Thank you very much for digging back into my works; it is appreciated. Olan

Had to dig deep to find this one, my friend,  but I am glad I did.  A sharply crafted sonnet on a painful subject matter, but you handled it with grace.  The metaphor works so well--The last line is particularly poignant .  excellent .  ~)K
