Love Letters

Love Letters
Form: Ivorian Sonnet 87

What are letters of love meant to reveal
If not the passion’s desire that I feel
Explicit expressions of sensual want
As understanding of love and lust
Unites us two as one on every front
Yet still I wonder if you truly know
How much I love you; how much joy you bring
Can words alone say it is this much, so
How else can I let you see my heart sing
For all our days I let thoughts freely flow
And in your hands my feelings I entrust
For in your arms I found my own savant
The truth of our love my heart can’t conceal
You, my life’s reason, you, my everything
