The Unicorn

Form: Arabian Sonnet

It’s just a dream, beyond the mortal reach
The vanishing sand as waves hit the beach
Yet the fragrance is still sweet as wild peach
And my desire is lost in its imagined speech
Softly spoken words enticing my mind
Fantasy quickly leaves the world behind
In the realm of dreams I am hunting blind
As I seek this thing, I will never find
Can something so pure dare to exist here
In a world that is ruled by lies and fear
Yet it is chaste whisper that touched my ear
Can love be real amid the wanton lust
Where nothing is true for truth is now dust
And a man learns there can never be trust
