A Non-Assertive Perhapsian Sonnet: Revolutionary Email Poetry

March 26, 2010

To revel in assertiveness,
I must confess,
requires an enjoyment
akin to bliss.

Sometimes, after the workout,
when I’m well perspired,
I may look at myself
and think: “WOW! I’m tired!”

Tired of the chase.
Tired of the race.
Tired of the chastisement
I sometimes must face

Tired of being too anxious to pursue, too eager to woo.
So, sometimes, I think: “Perhaps … I’m through.”

It’s not the Edge of the World, but… : A romantic email sonnet

March 1, 2009

She seemed romantic,energetic,
and yet
a few lines of tempting emails
was all I could ever get.

She stayed distant, aloof,
yet was fully aware
that there was safety and protection
so long as she stayed “out there”.

She would honestly open her soul
and let me peer inside
but only for a fleeting glimpse;
then she’d close up and hide.

Promising that more would come; smiling at my persistance.
Staying, still, safe inside her home, protected by distance.
