Form: Spanish Sonnet
Last night I heard you walking in the hall
And felt my rapid pulse quiver and quake
The moment nerves began to softly shake
In the silence came the voice of love's call.
Last night I felt love enchant and enthral
As senses quivered to gently awake
And left my heart open for you to take
Amid the want that is passion's befall.
Yet old fears raged in memories of pain
Those spite fuelled words that dragged me to the floor
In darkness doubts surface; a cold steel chain
A war cry that is love's hungered encore
Empowered dreams return to chance again
Released my heart is free to love you more
