WIP Wednesdays | Very Emo Sonnet | 2/22/2023

Feeling pretty sick physically and mentally this week but I mustered up the strength to post a couple of stanzas from a sonnet I’m working on. I plan on reading a few poems at an open mic night in April and this might very well be one of them.

Soft as sadness feathered clotting mold

In every orifice save the spotless tomb

Clinging onto petals wet with cold

Rot infects even the sweetest of blooms

Crystallizing in the perfect womb

Bloodied honey, oiliest in veins

Safe to you, humanity’s slow doom

Cursed coupling always made in vain
