My Lover Does Await



I wait for you to see me through the night, for nightmares come and capture me in dread, I seek from you my solace and your light, to guide my dreams to paradise instead. Oh Angel can you wrap me in your wings, to cradle me in blissfulness to sleep, and quell my screams so only I will sing, I hope tonight my eyes can keep from weep. Sweet Angel pray with me I'm in the dark, this place I'm lost and wishing I was blind, my love has died I'm feeling pretty stark in madness from the visions in my mind. Oh Spirit be my guide to Heaven's gate, and sate my heart my lover does await. Susan Ashley November 6, 2017

A sad sonnet that touched my heart. I've heard it said, "it's better to have loved and lost, than not to have loved at all."

Hello Susan, I just had to read another one of you sonnets here. This one is a beautiful love poem for sure!! (Silent One is spot-on with his comment below.) This one has a different flow from the other two of your latest sonnets I just recently read. But this is to be expected, of course, since each poetic theme calls for a different set of ideas, words, metaphors, and images. Sonnets can be challenging to write, but the end result is always worthwhile!! Superbly done!! Cheers and Best, Gary

I hope this one is fiction, Susan, mingled with bits from your life's journey, rather than a 'weight' you currently carry because it expressed a longing for release in the most passionate of pleas - almost desperate. By the end, I was praying for immediate escape as desired. I enjoyed reading it. Blessings ... CayCay

CayCay, this is strictly my heart's imagination at work along with bits and pieces of my life's journey to flavor my poem. Thank you for your sweet concern my friend and your caring comment. In this poem, the voice's desperation intensifies especially during the long sad nights when she's alone... Your wonderful insights and friendship is so appreciated. Warmest wishes ~Susan

Very powerful imagery and an evocative write, Susan. I have never been brave enough to tackle IP, but if Andrea says the meter is "impeccable" that's high praise indeed! Best of luck in the contest. Regards, John.

Nicely done, Susan. I like how it's talking to an angel instead of directly to a lover. Somehow makes the sentiments more exquisite and wistful. Enjoyed! :)

A moving wistful write Susan. I hope this is not a real life situation though? My dear you can take on any form of poetry and you would excel. This is indeed a wonderful sonnet in Iambic Pentameter. Bravo and a fave...Maria xxx
