“Her loving words…” a sonnet with audio written and read by Stephen J. Dawson Jr. 

Sonnet by Stephen J. Dawson Jr.

Her loving words comfort and dance off her tongue

To trickle down poetry perched on her chest

They blanket her curves and exalt them in song

So, I gave them my ear, let my heart convalesce
She looked inside me, her stare was wide-eyed

She read all my scars as if they were books

Each book that she read, she wore the spine dry

And rewrote the chapters with my pen that she took
Her touch on my chest; it cleanses a man

Undeserving, unloved, and unfeeling

A monster, I was; I swore I was damned

But her lips, medicated, were healing

Her knowledge of love; it seemed too arcane

She passed it to me and so, I became

-Stephen J. Dawson Jr.

  1. I’m keeping an eye out for your posts – I genuinely like your style. Just a touch of dark in this one, and I’m quite into the first three lines. Nice imagery.

    1. Thank you very much! It has a sense of melancholy but, beyond the dreary tone, it’s about healing.
