"A true friend won't stab you in the back when you least expect it. A true friend will stab you in the chest when you most deserve it" - Me

As I slept in the night’s sweet, gentle breeze,
My heart forged lies to bring my mind to peace
And you were that wind blowing through the trees,
For I wept when the gust began to cease.

I once said no sea or range could balk me,
From once again looking into your eyes.
And now I view what all blind men can see.
And hate what the happ’est man may despise.

You’ve built a range so high, a sea so deep,
For causes I could not have given you.
And I know it pains us both in our sleep,
That you said we’d not love while doves still coo.

But I recall how our love was back then,
I think of you and those winds blow again

This poem was rooted in a challange from my teacher in Junior year. He assigned us to write a sonnet in iambic pentameter. And i had never written in any meter before, and this sonnet is the result of the many attempts. And this is the first poem i was ever really proud of.

Excellent job... Out of all the different aspects of poetry, sonnets in iambic pentameter were always my favorite. You did a great job, keep up the good work.
