We were so wrong,
That we made it right.
We slept through the day,
And only talked at night.
We never told the truth,
We only lied.
We always laughed,
When we should have cried.
We were never bland,
We had to add spice.
We were always naughty,
But rarely nice.
We used the words hate,
Instead of using love.
We fell into a ditch,
Instead of rising above.

This is really, amazing. I'm sorry to hear about what happenned with your relationship, though. It seems that you came out of it stronger, and for that, props to you.

I love the realness of this poem! Very lovely, but it's not a sonnet. Sonnets have ten syllables per line, and their rhyme scheme goes like this:

 ABABCDCDEFEFGG

But nice work anyways :)
