This was no where near a sonnet, but a good thought on the title change, and now it seems to fit very well nicely expressed emotion in here, I adore the subject of love and here it makes a good impact. Heart break always a great subject.

That Day, And Onwards
Doggerel Dave said:

Here at MPS (and I don’t exclude myself from this) when we think of (and thus poeticize) war more often than not it is the WW1 1914-18 trenches that we turn to. There are reasons, I think, for that – not hard to work out; here I want to thank you for reminding us that the term ’war’ is far more generalisable than that and in particular the extraordinary (no, not extraordinary at all) loss of life suffered by the uninvolved civilian population.

Oohh, I dunno, it might hurt them!
Sounds like a bad hair day to me (an \'off-day\'!). heehee.
Oops, has that killed the atmosphere of the poem?

The Bottom Of The Well
L. B. Mek said:

if you\'re writing and sharing
its a sign that you\'re still fighting!
so I\'ll hope your morose wording
was for poetically, dramatic effect..
keep striving for that better
\'fight! fight! against the dying of the light!\'
thanks for sharing..
*really liked the levels of awareness
and honesty in this stanza:
\'I carry this bag full of all my mistakes
I tossed it into a well and then I looked away
The heart I hold in my hand, I wish I never found
Although, I fear that it would burst if I ever put it down\'
