sonnet #3

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

Arthur Ashe
For forty years i felt the beating of my heart.
The rhythm of which i compared to a broken drum.
Till in my life you came and made it start to dart.
Like strings from a harp when the bard makes them thrum.

The music it makes, makes me want to sing.
Along to the song that you inspired with your love.
A song fit for the ears of many a queen 'nd king.
As well as the halls of GOD's in the sky above.

For forty years i felt the beating of my heart.
And i knew not whether it would be made to dance.
A merry jig the masses would consider Art.
Or one that would make many want to shift their glance.

For forty years i felt the beating of my heart.
Which before you came, was clearly being torn apart.

Woke up fine

I awoke,
With eyes still closed
And felt, what wasn't supposed.

So smooth
It began to sooth
My melancholy mood
Before i began to brood.

It felt
So good
To feel
Your body
Laying next to mine
Inciting my mind
Recall a time
We drank
Way too much wine
And i started to dine 
On thoughts of how one
Can be so fine.
