sonnet of a lad dying for love

How to tell this
love I know not, And
this loud silence I
most loathe; For
like an arrow from a
sharp shot, My heart
batters it within my
coat. A rapid pulse
withing my bosom I
feel, As our roving
balls- her two, my
two- meet; and as
the tempestuous tide
simmered still, In
silence we are bond
sunder on our seat.
No! not for naught
dote I on her: Her
dressy decency doth
draw me; And near
and dear, away she's
far, Her simple
smile so sweet I
see. Lo! bothered
though am I to tell
it; Yet solaced I am
in this that I writ.

    Congratulations Oluwanifise for your win in the contest of Brian Strand "Two Thru Twelve". Love, Carol P. S. I was away and missed congrats on many of Brian's contests. I try but don't know if I will ever catch up.

    But dying for love can feel also sweet. Just to FEEL. Congrats on the win with your love sonnet.
