Sonnet: About Longing
In this yearning pain, love’s ardor takes flight,
For ’tis in longing here sweet treasures lie,
A dance betwixt two souls, concealed from sight,
As if our beings touch through veils awry.
What lies between us, is a realm unseen,
Where hopes and dreams they intertwine with grace,
A realm where magic, truth, and care convene,
And bind our spirits in loves embrace.
Do my feelings reflect the truth you see?
And does my gaze perceive your love’s decree?
In movement, we entwine, within emotion’s spell,
This metaphor of longing in which we both dwell.
Though distance may persist, our hearts remain,
Connected by the longing that knows no pain.
