Monday WRites 192


MAYBE A SONNET
I wanted to write you a love song,
Throbbing with fullness of passion.
But words kept dancing all of it own,
To silent strum of a syllabic moan.
Commas, full stops, semicolons, dashes.
That was when i knew i should,
Instead write you a sonnet if i could.
And still the letters curved to all shapes;
Like bananas, apples, cantaloupes, grapes.
The L was elusive, the O, just the same;
Maybe, i should has sketched your name,
To the horizon where earth and sky meet,
Where lovers are given mystical retreat,
Where E and V dance in a word forever.
