My Darling – Poetry [Sonnet]

In Poetry, Writing by Leave a Comment

A poem regarding the issue of being controlled by others/society 

Sit my darling, listen to orders now

Take a seat, ink in hand, a willing soul

Rules and regulations, papers to vow

Wisdom to offer, structure as a whole

Words with lessons, blindly grinning—Black lids

Sight useless, a clipped bird in its chains

But orders are orders, ones that forbids

Black ink to flow beyond the papers grains

So think my darling, but not too much please

Straying thoughts are wild fires—Must detain

Douse the embers in your head, put it to ease

Rebel ribbons to be tied, one to reign

Over lips unzipped far too much, my darling

Listen to me, I am your one calling
