Sonnet 1

A Poem by Ciara Di Salle

Coming from a place of seeking relationships whilst living with anxiety.

The prize I may acquire should I speak
To you with words tender as roses petals
Veritably, might both our interests pique; 
Likely my cerebral turmoil settle. 
Still, remain the gnarled, rigid hands around
My frail throat, strangling a feeble voice, 
Consequentially �" preventing sweet sound; 
Succulent words through which I'd gain notice. 
Your notice �" transparent acknowledgement, 
That I reach for such fair complexities
As yourself, labyrinthine and intelligent �"
Alluring, to furthest extremities. 
Stagnant, my mistrust restrains my intent, 
My love persists, yet mind and pen lament.

Perhaps it leads to better expression when we throw off the technical rules sometimes. This poem is one of those times. Nicely done, dear poet. The last line is definitely a classic keeper: "My love persists, yet mind and pen lament". Please share more, dear poet.
