Still confined without your slightest presence,
Restrained enchained but still I breathe the same,
Alone in this shady sordid existence,
I still believe someday you will reclaim.
In this mesh of darkness and filth,
My heart aches for nothing but life,
I make strides but still by stealth,
I blame you for the sinful strife.
You loved me devoid of pretence and flam,
You kissed me and desensitized ever,
But now I know, it was all sham,
Hatred is now stronger than my ardour.
The walls are inked with countless scrapes of dreams,
The cage echoes with my inward screams.
This is my first ever attempt to write a sonnet. Let me know if I have made any mistake or disappointed you. So, I insist you to comment on this telling how it was, good or bad, or just okay-okay.
I wrote this poem for a competition but unfortunately I didn't get much votes to enter the contest. Anyways, your comments will do the same. Good day everyone. Happy reading :)
