A Women Scorn

 The heart has turned away hiding inside
Conceals the pure love that once did glow
Afraid to reveal pain the heart does show
Broken with slashes deep trying to hide
Body mends the mind closed the gap so wide
Love has taken the soul far below
Buries the guilt so his hand cannot sow
Heart crying deep tears as true love has died

 Soul has learned not to trust anymore
Steals ones mind and thoughts not to restore
His lying lips she’s now a woman scorn
Emotions wasted on visions now torn
Walks alone to regain life as was born
Brings hope to a women who is lovelorn

I loved your sonnet. I could feel the forlornness of the woman who was scorned. So sad and yet it ends in hope. I liked this Rhoda. Thank you for your wonderful talent for evoking emotion and memories with your words.
Love, Charlene

Wonderful message from you Charlene. Maybe we all have been a 'Woman Scorn' at one time or another. Hmmm, maybe that is why I am single and can write about it...rg

Very informative and uplifting sonnet, Rhoda. I really like literary material like this. There are a lot who shy away from areas like this, but I am glad you have the boldness and flavor to speak about it. Continued blessings.

Maurice - thank you for your honest opinion. I don't post too much poetry with this type of subject matter, but on occasion I will. This is life - and I believe it is not what one says, it is how one says it. There are many woman (and men) jilted, scorn and such - if my words can give one hope for a new outlook and yes, even a new beginning - then write it I will for they are not alone. My heart thanks you...rg
