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!
