Inside Black

Inside Black
Form: Saraband Sonnet 7

Her secrets hidden inside black
Patent leather, and nobody knew
Behind the compact at the back
Dreams of a girl falling in love
Tucked neatly beside a white glove
His words offered from just before
The Kaiser brought about the war
His heart declared now he must fight
For her, his country, and for peace
As to her dreams she held on tight
But war is cruel with black-edged pain
His life taken in bullet fire
Letters she reads over again
Before the war she knew desire
