Free Verse On Love

pure elation
as I embrace you with 
sonnets that kindle the fire
between us

a constant balm that will
hold you tightly in the night
and caress your fears
with a diamante of desire

our heartbeats gradually increase
by iambs to a meter uncharted

the rhyme and rhythm dance
of death do us part
I’m free to engage with you in words
of longing stronger that love

no daydream melody 
but the why it isn’t a daydream
smelling of your scent after
lovemaking bursting forth into
a haiku

the license that bonds 
creating a metaphor that captures 
the sweetness of your satisfied moan
and my heart’s devotion
