ShakespeareanFebruary 11, 2010
Since I am, again, a part of Thursday Poet’s Rally, I came up with this sonnet. This is supposed to be a Shakespearean type of poetry, so I’m including it in my poetry project as well. I’m not sure if I got the poetry right. But I hope you still enjoy this. 🙂 This poem is called “The Writer” because I ran out of titles. I couldn’t think of a good title. I can entertain suggestions, though. 🙂
To know you is to love you more dearly.
I long to see you and have you near me.
With you by my side I see more clearly;
In love with you is all I’d want to be.
And when the days go by, I think of you-
Your smile, your touch, your laughter and your kiss.
I keep imagining; that’s all I do.
Everything about you, I really miss.
I pray the day we meet shall come again,
But till that day comes, I’ll have loneliness.
Thinking about you every now and then,
Without you my world is full of blankness.
All of these words for you I’d gladly write,
Till the day you’re no longer out of sight.
