Sonnet to the Past Five Years

A long, long time ago my friend and I
Were equal in our camaraderie;
And brazen in our youth, – but shy, too shy
To sublimate our bond in ecstasy –
Defended we our virgin pride that youth
To us had gifted. We were but naïve,
And love upon us did not shine its truth:
And permanence our bond could not achieve.
Now have those years all flickered, faded, passed
Away; just five years hence my heart does beat
Anew. The love unreckoned I amassed
Is now renounced and lost in sandy heat.
These five years took a boy and gave a man
In turn: a pawn to time, which heedless ran.

  I like it; it really makes people think about going through life and how things change us and shape us into who we are.
