LOVE...
....
..........AWRY


I love you you are my love
Rolls easily off my tongue
Suffice to say a starry night
Twinkles surely just for us right
If we are together the world
Is in magnificence a right fold
The universe is a peaceful place
How then this restlessness of my soul
Perchance to dream only of old
For light passes in fragile handfuls
And measures all for nought-fuls
Now there is only emptiness emptiness
Emptiness the source of sweet succor
And bitter is the taste of that sauce

  3. If we are together the world
    Is in magnificence a right fold

    If two hearts are one the world is but at a standstill. Great lines Gillena!

  6. I think it's a very good modern sonnet, with its half-rhymes and irregular rhythms.

  11. That's the best part of a failed relationship, Gillena, the being alone.
    Yes, a person can get lonesome, that's when the new shell cracks.
