The Pioneer


sonnet #2


 A warmth and hunger pump through my veins

 I am fed by your passion and desire

 used to feel as if I was locked in chains

 when in your presence, you take me higher


 as with my heart, you have taken the reins

my mind filled heavy, it’s built its own choir

 you silence my weeps and heal all my pains

 I hear the bells and envision this growing fire


 beaming through my body and all that contains

 a burning passion that is torched on fire

 a blissful life and serenity that stains

 any scenario without you, in advance I retire


 any path I might take, your company is desired

 together we roam and watch fate transpire
