Ad Finem
(A Shakespearean Sonnet)

by Dolores Esteban


Never have I thought of a thing like this
What a fool I am, what a fool I was
Your company I truly will not miss
You cheated on me and betrayed our cause

I am innocent and simple-hearted
Your mean and wicked plan I did not see
It was clever and, alas, well crafted
You showed your true face finally to me

However, thinking now a second time
I had suspicions the first day we met
You are up to betray and drop a dime
Strangely, and honestly, I’m not upset

So I shall better trust my inward voice
It says: game over, make a better choice
