Sonnet

Lost in Love

By Jonathan Srock

How can I express my feelings for you?
Can a man love the features you possess?
Your golden hair and soft skin to caress?
Captive, I am held; my love is renewed
Gazing into the pearls of your eyes
I lose all sense of time and worthless things
Unknown joy in my life your presence brings
In knowing you my elation does rise

Truly you are more precious than others
Only you alone arouse desire
My heart melts with passion; longing for you
Together with you all truth uncovers
From my inner being burns a fire
We were meant for each other; this is true
