“A Foolish Dream” (a red sonnet)

It started with a wish that never came true,

when all I dreamt about each day was you;

It started with a hope that was never fulfilled,

When I tried to reach your heart, but Time never willed.

I chose you, among all other prouds.

I chose you, beneath the lonely summer clouds.

It ended with a sigh, so tranquil and painful –

And ended with tears, so sorrowful.

How could heavens above deprive me of this?

A love painted with eternal bliss.

O, Sunshine and Rain, will you conspire to achieve?

That love I’ve always believed and never grieved.

It started with a bitter-sweet smile.

It ended up with a very charming lie.
