Eclipse (Free Verse Sonnet)

Transition plays reassured surrender,

passing through impending faith for each one,

reflective tranquillity unto which we render

the vacant light of each unknown vanishing sun.

Nightmares consume paramours with promise,

Each longing to sustain obscuring skies,

The seasoning temperaments, called too honest,

solace gained between concealed lies.

Consuming passions discard innocence

in lieu of mirages occupied with doubts and change,

the pitch forfeit of hearts and insects, villainous

deformities, that bargain grace from lovers estranged.

Yet the stage brings clearer waters, still flowing onward to Styx,

and light profits from each heartache, reborn anew, after each eclipse.
