Sonnet 6

Did I fly too close to the light, too high

Above the clouds and the highest mountains,

Thoughts of spending this life with only you

Taking me further away from the ground,

That I’m cast down without any tears.

Shut me out of heaven for forever

And left me to be consumed by the dark

For there’s only shadows without your arms.

I shone too bright with hopes and dreams of love

Unconditional and ever-lasting.

Was this my only sin or was there more

That has brought me this unfair punishment.

To think that I had you for eternity

Only to be reminded of love’s mortality.
