Repentant Rose Lets Her Fragrance Flow: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

August 24, 2010

Behold, fair rose!
Thou who art at once so close,
and yet so distant.
wondering where romance went.

Take the chance to repent
of that which thou previously said:

to opening your heart,
uncovering your treasure
and sharing your deepest part.

Be the rose who opens her bloom
and, with her fragrance, lifts the gloom.

“U heard it wrong! Go to yer room!”/

I repent/
and flaunt/
I’m what U want!
