Six Sonnets - I. The Lover Loves


“The persistence of the infatuation lent it an aspect of genuineness. The hopelessness of it colored it with the lofty tones of a great passion.”

Kate Chopin, The Awakening

I. The Lover Loves

My thoughts of you rest lightly on my heart
Where they brighten and burn into my mind.
There light thoughts turn dark and swiftly part
And passion with reason becomes entwined
Although I love I know not what I love
Nor now why since I know you not at all
And were I to discover that you love
Me not nor ever could, I would fall
Trapped inside the workings I conceive.
But my unruly heart denies that play
And holds what darkened minds cannot perceive
While you are unaware, I safely stay
In love expressed as much as I allow
And as little that you may not yet know.
