SONNET – DISCREET WORDS
The discreet wonder became ever more
by audacious words a few, so daring,
subtle notion to fill the hollow core
by visions of love’s intimate sharing.
Reverence carried into ardent lust,
albeit with forborn adoration,
wherefore to surrender, the words to trust,
unworthy of beliefs meek elation.
Suddenly, gloom turned into hope of new,
will was lifted from the edge of despair,
expectations of promises subdue,
to lecherous nonvirtuous affair.
Yet those words were left wanting in reply,
redemption of love’s trust for you and I.
