Transcendent Love

Will you be loving me ‘til time is naught? Your fingers only know of suppleness, will they not flinch to touch skin wrinkle-fraught? My beauty withers, cup reached emptiness… Your love has set my heart aglow, renewed ‘tis ev’rytime your words lave over me... Like soothing rain on desert sand subdued, I soak it in, drunk for eternity Do forgive me, for ever doubting you, this pain has ravaged me, yet you’re still here. ‘Tis I you love, this I now know so true, please stay with me, for death creeps in so near Let saccharine lips meet for one last time The windows close now, yet leave love sublime 00612162011

Congratulations on your win, Nikko! So happy for you. As for your comment on my blog, old poems are perfectly fine. No need to write something new if you have already written one about a ghost or ghosts. Looking forward to receiving your entry. (No names as Jack and I are judging blindly.) Love you, Carolyn (leaving for the MRI now)

Nikko, this is far better than what you did before.it is almost perfectly metered. So what was your secret? Did you consult a meter maid? heehee. I really like it and like Chris says,it FEELS very classical. A REAL sonnet in this contest. I am very proud of you. LUv, Andrea

So passionate, Nikko! Beautiful images and a perfect entry for Francine's contest. The last couplet is amazing and I can feel the love so clearly in your sonnet. I'm really envious of the way you write about love. It's hard for me. Surely a winner! Love, Carolyn
