Dark Sonnet #2 (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

I am extremely powerless for you 
This submissive game isn't new 
When I pick you up out of the dark 
You bring me down like a shark 

I am miserable with the desire 
To set our desperate lives on fire 
Burning for your love over and over 
Damn, I wish I had a four-leaf clover 

This sonnet is second just like me
You are first but that you can't see
I want to be done with you forever 
Your manipulation of my heart is clever 

You mock what my heart has to say 
This is just my feelings on display

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
