I saw it lying there, and I don’t know
how and why this lie could keep going on.
I believed our love was pure as fallen snow
But you knew that out love was merrily a con.

I gripped it tightly and slammed it against the wall,
What’s your problem with living an honest life?
I wanted to hurt you where no one could hear your call,
But I knew it would be the result of my own strife.

I gave you every ounce of all my trust
I have you every ounce of all my soul.
But now that trust has perished into dust.
May the devil’s furnace scorch your soul as coal.

I may have been the one to feel the pain
But in the end you shall feel Lucifer’s reign

The author's comments:
This sonnet takes you through the story of a girl who found out her boyfriend was cheeting on her. The first stanza is her disbelief and discovery, the second is her anger, the third is the hopless reflection that he hurt her and didn't care, and the final stanza is her comming to the conclusion that he will be the one hurt in the end.

Great poem! I love how each stanza transitioned into a new stage of emotion.  Very powerful message. Nice job! :)

Sorry!  That was not how I meant to word that.  What I meant to say was:  You made the meaning clear within the sonnet, so you did not need to explain it down on the side.

Nice work! In the future, try to make the meaning more clear within the poem itself, instead of having to explain it on the side.  Besides that, the sonnet was awesome!
