nothing but words …

Sonnet XVI

 

My Nook is empty, waiting patiently,

I suspect it knows what I’ve been up to.

Writing, it understands, is what I do,

but that does not lessen its jealousy.

It wants to be treated more uniquely,

not as if it were always Number Two.

We were inseparable when it was new,

giving so much of my time so freely.

It is taken for granted, now it feels,

we barely communicate anymore,

it glares at my laptop with jealous rage,

with hatred it doesn’t try to conceal.

"You’ve changed," it says, "and I won’t be ignored!"

"This had better be just a passing phase."

My first impression is to see

how beautiful you seem to be.

Although that cannot be denied,

your beauty’s more than meets the eye.

 

Some only see you from afar,

like gazing at some distant star.

Maybe they’re just afraid to try,

your beauty’s more than meets the eye.

 

I look deeper than many do,

needing to know the real you,

attracted by what is inside,

your beauty’s more than meets the eye.

 

So reveal your heart and your soul,

the inner and the outer whole.

even if some things fade with time,

your beauty’s more than meets the eye.

 

I pray whoever wins your love,

will truly be deserving of

so much more than what is outside,

your beauty’s more than meets the eye.

Misconstrued

Misconstrued

 

Please excuse me for

my honest exuberance,

I’ll say nothing more.

It’s just I so rarely find

Someone who excites my mind,

Whose words, truly touch my heart.

I only meant to impart

joyful gratitude,

a little encouragement,

not be misconstrued.
