Stunning poem. I can feel the pain and frustration seeping through the words pleading for that forgiveness.

I love these lines:

And be denied, if you were in control?

Very powerful piece which flows beautifully and the rhythm and rhyme make for a very enjoyable if heart crushing read that they be denied forgiveness.

Well done and thanks for sharing.

This is terrific and was worth a second read through. So many questions asked and none resolved. The flow of your sonnet is so smooth it carries the reader from beginning to end and you convey such anquish for the MC….love it.

This sonnet sounds like someone cheated. They broke a promise to another. One that was so great breaking it meant never seeing them again.

Oustanding work a word choices.
