Mary Spain

I'M Sitting Here...

I'm sitting here and you are sitting there,
You're telling me what's happened since we met,
And I am happy for I love to share
All aspects of your busy life. And yet -
Rebellious fingers yearn to stroke your face,
Rebellious mind strays from your argument
And dwells instead on thoughts of your embrace
And memories of what our kisses meant.
I try to concentrate, but cannot find
Much aptitude for logic when you're near.
Oh, darling, surely you can read my mind?
You're sitting there and I am sitting here
Just longing for the moment when you'll say,
With outstretched arms, 'You're rather far away.'

    imagination is free to run, it takes us into there arms and allows us to linger there knowing there's nothing we rather do.We know our thoughts are only reflecting the loving hopes of our heart because whenever they wander, they always take us to the one we love..... God bless you always!

    Hugs,
    Rommel

    This is a wonderful sonnet Mary. I like how you bring in the new direction of the narrative by line five. You seem to feel that this is the important aspect of the poem. A lovely write and, as ever, a skilled use of the form.
