From the Overlook

a Spanish sonnet

Passion thrives on forgiveness, oh my sweet.
Your scorn will reason well to wonder why 
I attempt a smile even though your eyes   
refuse to cherish blooms laid at your feet. 
We need to take stock of trust when we meet;  
weeds of abomination  poke and pry.
From the overlook, my soul heaves a sigh,
you uproot our relationship with deceit. 

Your lie lacked confirmation from the start - 
why you would mock or kid, I do not know. 
Struggle rose within this admiring heart;   
impatience flames and yet I rise with hoe
of love to root out what your two lips thwart.
Each day, sees me at work melting your snow.

I think patience works well to promote passion in love relationships.
Notice the words in italics in the second stanza, flowers bloom there.
