Expectations Cause Damoclesian Worry: Romantic ConTEXTing Sonnet

August 20, 2012

Expectations of emails, phone calls and texts
hang over our heads, heavy;
They worry and vex
like the sword of Damocles.

But these things should never be.
there should be no guilt nor frustration.
It’s all created from false worry,
and from unreasonable demands for validation.

So we must remove ourselves from that throne
and let be cut that single horsehair.
For even though we’re not alone,
no one needs to be seated there.

And those who such verbal oblations and veneration demanded
should be chastised, corrected and repremanded.


It Doesn’t Matter Much: Romantic ConTEXTing Sonnet Lament

June 30, 2012

I suppose it doesn’t matter much
That you said you missed me,
That you ached for my touch,
That you couldn’t resist me.

It doesn’t matter that I turned away,
That ending it was my call,
That you, then, had naught to say
It doesn’t matter much at all.

For here we are with expectations
As we were before,
And those, unmet, lead to frustration
And we, again, seem like a chore.

For sweet desires, memories and yearning
Are not all we bring back upon our returning.
