If this is familiar it is because it’s a re-write of the recent Sonnet 2 which I decided was art but was disappointing so I trashed it with the dramatic flair of a tortured artist, sacked my muse, sulked and started again.


Sonnet 2 v2

As the night’s falling drape of velvet dusk

forewarns that a drowsy stillness is nigh

and the faint radiance of moonlight brusque

lays a gentle comfort along her thigh,

steal I a silk whisper kiss on pale skin.

And on my lips taste I such honeyed scent

I pray these hours to forever begin,

for the yearning to touch is never spent.

What beating heart could such beauty resist,

a love that from a single glance was born,

or that will cause adoring sight to mist

from knowing heartbreak will arrive at dawn.

For to her, of my love I should not say,

so must unworthy heart be gone by day.
