Sonnet On Love 1 (Petrarchan Sonnet)


As I sit silently across this room
A sweet nostalgic moment comes to mind
About a love I cannot leave behind
'Twas a place where it used to be my home
Those years and good times where I always roam
A glimpse of her face so lovely at sight
Love unequalled and never will I find
I recall those sleepless nights in my room
And to think of her fairness constantly
No matter how the years passed and unwind
Still I reminisced and loved her beauty
Just her name! ! my heart reacts in a bind
This poem's made to refresh her memory
And ease the solitude and misery...

    Thank you Sandi, as ever...Petrarchan is a 14 line poem,10 syllables/line, that rhymes in lines (1-4-5-8) , (2-3-6-7)
    9-11 10-12 and 11-14. An old form of poetry. (Report) Reply

    ...Just her name! ! my heart reacts in a bind...
    Bound up in love, sweet bindings, welcome constraints, prison embraced, freedom erased yet enjoyed in love.
    Beautiful, delicate and light as usual. What is a Petrarchan Sonnet? (Report) Reply
