The Depth Of Their Dismay (A Sonnet) by DragonSkulls
Monorhyme writing prompt entry

Image result for dark face

Beneath the jagged shards of one's dismay,
no heed to thoughtful mind in words they say.
With bitter tongue they share their disarray,
in hopes I too shall wade in their decay.

Without a care to what these words may weigh,
I clearly feel the depth that they portray.
and even if they tried they can't unsay
the damage that's been done along the way.

But should I dare to hold their words at bay,
what damning scars would then come into play?
Would too this artist's brush begin to fray
and stain upon the page that I display?

The words I choose to use are sure to stay
So keep to your own self how I should play.


Writing Prompt
A Monorhyme is a poem in which all the lines have the same end rhyme.

Author Notes
A response to a review I once received, telling me what they think is or isn't
appropriate for a contest entry. I'll enter what I damn well please.
