I know I'm in denial,

Saying I don't love her.

But I still say it all the while,

Because I have been hurt.


I know I should stop this,

I know I should just face it.

But I can't face up to this,

I can only run away from it.


I know that I still love her,

I would take her back in a heartbeat,

But as I can't have her,

I lie to myself, looking down at my feet.


I know that I still love her,

But Denial is my only friend.

My first proper sonnet, in the entire formation of it etc.
I hate re-reading this piece, it reminds me I'm still in denial.
And just afraid to do anything about it...
And I can hear my broken heart beat when I read it.

And now, I think, Denial needs to meet Acceptance, hopefully in the future.

Not to be an ass or anything, but it is not a proper sonnet.

Sonnets are 14 lines with 10 syllables each line, go through and count it my friend, there is no line with 10.
To be quite honest, someone pointed this out to me.
Also pointed out it's meant to be 6-6-2.
I had no clue apart from "meant to be 14 lines"
No one was there to help me, so I did my best :shrug:
It's an alright poem, sonnet or not.

Ok, I did not mean to be rude, and yes it is a wondeful poem.
...Been in the same spot (still am actually), so I can sympathize!
