This was a sonnet I compsed for the MA course, we had to write something in a traditional form….so this is my effort!


Two into one, in the absence of light,
mine, the complicity of your embrace,
crimson curtains, boundaries of our night,
velvety guardians of our secret place.
The world, its secrets, in our limbs entwined,
mouth meeting skin with a balletic grace,
temple of love by warm flesh enshrined
encircling bodies arc precious space

Thoughtless, with emotional jackboot you shatter
our sanctuary, throw my bloody heart
into the gutter, now I don’t matter.
Blighted still-beating heart, now ripped apart .
The tattered remains of your crystal night,
love lies cold, bleeding, in wilderness white.
