Now and beyond

I’m not one for same old, or cliché dead
I think there’s more depth left unspoken, new
things we discover in what’s left unsaid
and must romance always have the old blue?

Perhaps there’s more hue than what we say, feel
a dash of beauty far beyond sense, thought
perhaps that makes love slowly grow and heal
and it’s not trite games played or wars won, fought

Perhaps the color we look for lies far
beyond mere knowing of our story, and
these seconds, minutes, ticks, chimes and an hour
and more than looking at the hourglass, sand

But then again all said, you know this true
you know how deeply I’m in love with you.

      1. Went back to check if there are 14 lines. 😆
        I don’t know anything about a sonnet except that it has 14 lines.😂
        While reading and appreciating, it’s mostly the content for me…

    1. Thank you very much Chelsea. I thought I’d write the traditional sonnet for a change, instead of changing it up. I haven’t done that for a long time.
