Raindrops of My Heart

My soul weeps like a willow

bending but never breaking,

hanging on to hope.

Roaring loud as thunder,

burdens begin to fall

plethora of tears storm.

Slowly suffocating,

all of me is drowning

in the raindrops of my heart.

Terza Rima Sonnet: A Happy Ending

Moonlight at midnight feels like forty degrees,

As winter whispers, body starts to shudder,

Sitting close, eyes lock, he gives a gentle squeeze.


Emotions making my heart all aflutter,

Overcome with love my words cannot explain,

Tongue gets twisted and I begin to stutter.


We step inside for a bottle of champagne,

Heartfelt “I love you,” nothing else could be said

Tonight’s the night I can no longer abstain.


Sharing this special night and morning ahead,

Nerves at ease now and I’m feeling kinda bold,

Slipped away and returned wearing something red.


Oops! I’m so sorry, the rest just can’t be told,

Suffice to say passion could not be controlled.
