5 Sep 2019 - Sonnet

You know I want you, and I want you now.
A hidden garden needing hose or hoe -
or do your obligations not allow
the hungers of the body to be known?
Some say it's sin to listen to the flesh,
these bodies are an evil to abhor.
Although our skins were made to intermesh,
the 'truth' is otherwise, and we're at war.
But muscle knows full well what mind can't guess:
that form and function point the way towards bliss,
and contradict the lies the mind suggests -
could anything be lovelier than this?
Come show me what your body says, sweet miss,
and we'll begin this journey with a kiss.

Very nice, Gavin. I like your formal poetry and I like the enjambment here. I like how you imply body over mind...the driving desire to "intermesh".
