Rainbow Sonnet

Poem By Mary Lyle

All my days I have sought you like a flower following the sun; grasping for every morsel of light.
The river of my essence has flowed to your inviting ocean; spinning in a cyclone of wildfire.
My heart has become encapsulated by the sands of your shores, sucking me into euphoria.
Love has encumbered my heart like that of a mother to her newborn child.
This raging heart beats in tune with the algorithmic drum of a mad tribesman;
My chest concaves at the mere idea of your mouth.
The pit of my stomach blossoms like a rose then explodes with the rapture of a dandelion caught in the wind.
I love you effortlessly yet with the force of a thousand horses.
I know not the faces in the crowd, nor the sounds behind me when you are near.
It is only through the reality of your amber eyes that fortitude is revealed to my existence in the World.
It has always been you and I; waiting and watching until timing was impeccable.
Your thoughts, your feelings, your beauty have exuded me into a realm I've never visited.
You are the perfect rainbow after a lifetime of storms.

When shall my weary heart prevail from this ceaseless pain?
Aching, my burning heart's love lost indefinitely.
So long ago, soulmates in unity.
Such fiery love like the passion of night.

From The Blue

From the blue you appeared unforeseen,
And to the blue you have elated me in flight.
From the blue, an angel I envision you,
And how the blue casts your radiance for others to see!


My Dandelion; From what sun-kissed breeze did you arrive?
Sweeping through my hair and across my lips,
Ever so gently fondling my heart.
Your softness eludes me like the darkness of a midnight sky.


Oh, my light in the dark, from which star did you fall?
How could you force the rain to fall heavily upon my soul?
A puddle drowning my aura, my being.

Alone With You

Alone with you

Alone with you is where I long to be
Alone with her is where you are free

My Heart

My Heart, you've Captured
This Body, you've Intoxicated
My Soul, you've Pierced
This Mind, you've Unfolded
