You Put Me On Trial

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
