Sonnet Xvii

Rating: 4.5
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way Because i have no other way than to love you. tony

imagine this, where I does not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. then I awaking to a dream of being alone in my bed again, think about it....

PG13. I get it. I'll save this poem for some fine leisure, sometimes later.
