Sonnet Upon My Heart

I don’t have to write a sonnet

My heart has one written upon it

I feel the breeze of change blowing through

It’s coursing through my veins too

My arms are outstretched, I can’t reach

But I’d gladly swim the Great Atlantic to get to you


Tonight the stars shine bright and brilliantly

Blazing and burning for Us because 

They know and they see

Our Story: All that can and will be!


How lovely — 

We both have finally woke up

Alive again in our new beautiful reality

You melt me like sugar on my tongue

Melt, then I gracefully leap and tumble

Now, no longer do I stumble, I soar

Weightless — a delicate butterfly in ruby red slippers 

It’s You. The one who set my heart on fire!

Reignited the existence of desire

Flames are my soul’s recognition 

A faint recollection of Hope and Joy


Burning my cynicism to ash

Given the gift of courage to NOT look away

Instead of worrying — I face my day

May I ask this paralyzing happiness to stay?


Your flames burn hot and high

Weak and alone. Oh! No, not I!

Vaporizing my demons — doubt and uncertainty 

Carrying my fears for me


No need for the penchant to escape

Finally, I feel strong, like I won’t break

I love you, I love me, I love Us!

Now I know — it will always be —

Be forever with you!
