The first time I see you, I pass you by,
Weeks fly away, everything changes day to day,
September begins and I cannot lie, I allow myself to fall all the way,

You vanish for awhile, leave me to think,
Arrival, perfect still, second glance leaves more thirst,
I ask you to dance, No you durst not drink
The heady libations of love immersed,

Time changes me and you, I let you chase
Me, but the world won't wait and I find myself in your starlit eyes in a face
That I will never forget, I was so blind,

You stare down at me, hold me in your arms
I kiss my heart goodbye, give into your charms.


The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by the guy I fell in love with this year, each line, quatrain and the couplet of the sonnet are about him and the things that have happened between us. I didn't intend to write this sonnet, but it was assigned in my english 10 honors teacher. The instructions: write a sonnet in Shakespearean style about unrequited love. I hope people will see the fluctuations of unrequited love within the poem.

Thank you! Well its actually ment to be 14 lines, however there were a few places where I didn't format it correctly and lines didn't get separated. For example where it says : I allow myself to fall all the way,

That should have been moved down a line, but it still gives the same general idea and feeling I hope! :)

I like the emotion, but I was wondering why you cut it short to 12 lines. Why the break with tradition?
