Envious - Sonnet 11:22

This is the greatest struggle that mocks me, 
To be a distant sigh, caused by this queen;
A rose that has yet to compliment thee,
beyond the scope of eyes, already seen. 
There is mystery in her soft appeal, 
a humble frame that solicits my quest; 
and while life leaves us with answers concealed, 
I’m convinced this broad advance is perfect. 
For while life is bitter, this is pleasure; 
To gracefully shatter this mundane silence, 
and dispel the devils space, indeed clever; 
let’s rejoice in brief absence coined timeless. 
With these tendencies forever burning, 
may this one flesh never cease from yearning.
