Love Over Time

Form: Ivorian Sonnet 46

Without my love the world appears so cold
A silent space with senses on withhold
Those moments when shivers touch not her lip
As if earth has lost all its loveliness
And drowsiness has me in its dark grip
The dreams of love are fading far too fast
Within the stillness of the rising dawn
If only wishful thoughts could be made to last
Instead my senses feel lost and forlorn
Until her words can tear that down a strip
And negative thoughts from my mind are torn
Replaced by love that I freely express
And days of loneliness lie in the past
As in her arms I feel our love unfold
