Transitory Night

Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 32 – aba cdcd bcaed ee

In these, the darkest hours, I feel so wrong
Alone and longing to look in your eyes
To find the answer of love, my heart’s song
Just as I do when I am there with you
I lose myself in the touch of your lips
A kiss that leaves no memory more true
Like senses lost in an apocalypse
Of passion; and now the emptiness sighs
In aphotic skies since we said adieu
And a few short days now seems so long
Yet it is love, our love, that takes the strain
The gentle reminder that softly slips
Into my thoughts and in every vein
For time moves slow ‘til I see you again
