Honest Love Sonnet

I gaze upon the stranger opposite,
I’m wondering if he has noticed me,
I smooth my hair, and change the way I sit.
I’m coy, so shy, uncomfortable… Is he?

Why must I torture myself in this way?
I just want love to ambush me, and soon.
No time to think, no fuss, with no delay.
He doesn’t even have to make me swoon.

My friend says that I am more than enough.
He makes me smile, and helps me to get by.
Just why do I find seeking love so tough?
But then I see a glimmer in his eye.

When friendship blossoms into something more,
That’s when love is honest, real and pure.

  1. I really like how this part works:

    I’m coy, so shy, uncomfortable… Is he?

    Why must I torture myself in this way?
    I just want love to ambush me, and soon.
    No time to think, no fuss, with no delay.
    He doesn’t even have to make me swoon.

    If one reads it with the punctuation you worked in an extra rhyme with the ‘Is he?’ and the ‘ambush me,’ then the ‘and soon’ with ‘me swoon’.

    Planned or not… Nice.

    1. Thank you- I really enjoy playing with homophones! So there were extra rhymes present intentionally, though not placed with too much thought! So thank you for pointing that out! ✨
