In Love’s Consummation

In Love’s Consummation
Form: Balanced Sonnet
Theme: Love
Subject: Paper Tubes

How are we divided since we have kissed
Are we not now two souls united as one
Is there some deed or word love I have missed?
And like paper cats shredded and undone
My heart is unravelling from the tube
A pile on the floor, unwoven, unspun
My heart, once more, turns to an icy cube
In love’s consummation did we forget
Or does my crying soul bring you delight
Was it sympathy or done for a bet
As you kissed my heart into realms of night
Did I see you smile at the trailing tear
That my red, stinging eyes wept into sight
And still I hope your happy now, my dear
