So here's Monday's offering. It's only had a couple of drafts and no doubt could benefit from a rewrite but this is its skeleton - hope you enjoy xx
Morning Sonnet I
I could have sworn I heard you shout my name,
In the deep dark night, in a lonely way,
Each syllable pronounced with screaming pain,
Infused with longing and hope that I may
Put down my lover and come to your bed,
Put aside my own heart and pamper yours,
Put right which is wrong in your confused head,
Give up all that is me to attend your flaws.
A singular cause, a life's work addressed;
A manic few moments, a stranger's bed,
A panicking pause, as you demand more,
My eyes wide as skies, no passion repressed,
A lifetime of loving I choose instead -
So I'll say: "no thanks", continue to snore.
