You Put Me On Trial

August 2, 2010
On the evening nights when you take my hand
And you whisper into my ear at night
Your soft song throws me into a new land
Where even in dark, I can see your light.

Yes, I know I'm guilty; I love your smile
Anyone can accuse me of this crime
But only you can put me on trial
You would definately be worth my time.

So I guess I'll have to turn myself in
I hope they'll quickly open my case
Because I know, for you, that I will win
Then I'll come home to your arms, a safe place.

Your touch is what I long for in this room
But hope with me we'll see each other soon.

Noo, no, he's not leaving.

The story is, I was at a summer camp, and I was away from my boyfriend.  Haha  This was a writing camp, and our teacher told us it had to be about love, so naturally... This is what I though of.  =]

Hahaha Yeahhh. ;)

And yeah.  I kindof wrote it that way so other people could still relate to the poem, you know?  So they could interpret it in their own way.  =]  So whether it's some silly little girl like me missing her boyfriend from camp, or another person missing someone from war, either way works.  (I think. =])

Yeah.  And it's okay.  I'm always slow with a lot of things.  Haha

(I'm so sorry I didn't reply to this sooner; for some reason it didn't send to my e-mail.)

But thank you so much. =]  It's one of my first attempts at a sonnet, so I was a bit scared of how it would turn out.  Haha
