Love Sonnet 145: ' When Gloom Abides With Me Tenaciously'

Poem By Reyvrex Questor Reyes

When gloom abides with me tenaciously,
To sap my mirth off lame delights you left,
I hang on threads, and swing precariously,
So loveless now, even of hope, bereft:
How could you have chastised with so much stripes,
And walk me gallows, to hang by the noose?
There seems no antidote, my poor heart gripes,
To venom of the sting, you made me choose:
I'll wait, to count down days of black and gray,
Though hours are longer, till the day you're back,
And time might freeze, to further the delay,
But come, put back my awry world on track:
.......For only when you do, will sorrows fly,
.......And once again, will rainbows fill my eye.

Love Sonnet 46: 'My Love Sent Me A Song So Soft And Sweet'

My love sent me a song so soft and sweet,
Like melody that lulls babies to sleep,
That hints of angels in their dreams to meet,
Assured in cradle of a mother's keep;

Lust

What feeds the greed and itch for more power?
The infamous, to numb, and bear more shame,
To climb pedestals, very much higher,
To snatch a crown, with or without, the fame?

Love Sonnet 34: 'Dear Moon, Please Bring These Thoughts To Where She Is'

Dear moon, please bring these thoughts to where she is,
For moonbeams she yearns, coming from your face,
Please bounce to her when I would blow a kiss
Across the sea, there to her flowered place;

A Beach Wish

I wished once to be a mountain
Rivers flowing by my side
My feet resting where waters drain
Seawards, and there to meet the tide

Love Sonnet 32: 'How Do I Start This Journey To Your Heart? '

How do I start this journey to your heart?
From charts or auguries for direction?
Should thousand ships from port with me depart,
Yet East or West, where lies your affection?

Love Sonnet 42: 'My Love May Now Be Looking At The Moon'

My love may now be looking at the moon,
She thinks that there I also gaze tonight,
And this, she has to know so very soon,
That on those times, she always had been right;
