Sonnet for Patience in Love

While corresponding in clandestine code
is fitting fodder for a girlish blush,
when speaking of a love not yet bestowed
I cannot say a thing but “Darling hush”.
A woman who is fragile and alone
learns quickly that she can’t bequeath her trust
to any man affectionate in tone
where hidden lies but greed and petty lust.
But if you’ll let me speak with you as friend
and keep your patience for a little bit
in time my heart will surely come to mend
and then my adoration I’ll admit.
So Darling while your words make my heart race
tread lightly when pursuing my embrace.
