The Torment of Love (*A sonnet*)
He soars through the night, a dark winged dream
Leaving me helpless to tormenting eyes.
Whirlpools of feelings are easily seen.
Like an albatross flying in cloudless skies.
Easily, he takes me under his wings;
His talons grasping my soul at its core;
Ripping to shreds the desire to be one
With anyone else but this man I adore.
Dark angels follow him o'er all the earth.
Whispers of death encompassing doom.
Could I find the strength to follow him there?
To that place where his eyes lighten the gloom?
Oh, vision of black, so blessed and feared.
Your bittersweet night is drawing me near.

Riveting, Dori. How very intense. I've read this several times and each time it has the same gripping effect. Excellent work. ML
