Description: This one is not an easy read. It's worth reading it, though, if you are in a deep, sad, or thoughtful mood. It's about loving someone you can't have.
Sonnet to Fantasy -------------------------------------------
I thought of you at 12'o'clock AM.
The salty wisps of water in the air
Reminded me you weren't one of them.
A set of cotton daggers through your hair;
The waning moment, just before you wake,
To find yourself caressed by lover's hands,
Unknown as yet the path you undertake;
Yet love, like time, is passed in falling sands.
I thought of you again as hours flew
And salty wisps of water came to eye.
This moment, I could tell, was made for you;
Behind me, Aphrodite starts to cry.
The key I used to lock the door to Hell:
Denied to you, with all I can not tell.
And salty wisps of water came to eye...*droool* i love that line ...mmm heartbreak and longing ...tastes like honey to me ...This had an old style feel to me ..which i just love ...Very nice meaning ...and artistic flair to boot ...Good Job
I agree, it is a tough read. It took me about three reads to grasp the rhyme and pace(I'm a little slow) I enjoyed a lot of the piece, it had interesting metaphors and it was not overly done. I liked bringing Aphrodite into the poem, it gave it a nice touch that might not of otherwise been there. Good work! Dan
