Love Or Desire

The electricity of her face Alive in bone and fiber Her veins I gently trace A dull ache where there once was fire Her mouth its curved grace Sickening spark bad liar Was it love or was it desire I dreamed a funeral pyre Her perfume in my room Was it love or was it desire The flames come up, a fiery tiger I wake from the deadly tomb A dull ache where there once was fire Chrysanthemums in bloom Their white the flames consume A dull ache where there once was fire Was it love or was it desire

Hi Zara, The Baron is being kind, the poem has some merit but none as a sonnet.

Nice write - maybe you want to label this as rhyme instead of sonnet - you can always check on "types of Poems" but a deep write Zara.
