Elton's Songs (Songetry Sonnet for Lainey)
Sad songs say so much, or so speaks Elton;
Though really, does not have to be as such.
We all fall in love sometimes, with the one;
I need you to turn to; ask I too much?
Not all things constant, if the river can bend;
I'm still standing, whatever comes my way.
Love lies bleeding, but my heart you can mend.
Come down in time, and I'll meet you halfway.
Heartache all over the world, this is true.
I suppose the end will come at some time.
I've seen that movie too, what to do?
Duets for one lend only to sublime.
Breaking hearts is not what it used to be.
Goodbye doesn't seem right for you and me.
Note from writer: This is a songetry piece, made up from song titles and passages from Elton John & Bernie Taupin. It was written as a result from a poetry challenge to write a sonnet using song titles from a favorite artist. Elton John was the obvious choice for this writing exercise.
