My first SERIOUS attempt at a sonnet.....made tougher by the fact I had the last two lines in my head first!! LOL
Crowned with the glory of your precious love
I believed myself to have won your heart
I dreamed that we would never be apart--
Neither on this earth nor in heaven above.
Passing time gave you every chance to prove
You had more than tender words to impart--
Instead of being struck by Cupid's dart
You showed me a heart that still longed to rove.
Though you knew how to love my body well,
You always managed to make my soul cry;
Longing for more, yet feeling all hope die.
Without you , here in my own private Hell,
There is but one truth left that I must tell:
As love crowns you, so shall he crucify.
