About the Poem

Do you love someone, even though you haven't met in real life? This classical sonnet lets them know how you feel.

Aphrodite

How can I express all the things I ought
To say, in lines so strict and binding tight?
The use of rhyme to show my deepest thought
Is foolish, but I thought I ought to fight
These doubts, and tell you how you make me feel.

I see you every night in dreams so clear
I'm always led to believe that they're real -
Until my heart feels dawn's cruel piercing spear.
Alas, these dreams are all I so far have,
Not having met you in the light of day.
I need you to know you're the one I love;
With silent lips I try again to say...

My Aphrodite, you know I love you -
Now I ask you this: Do you love me too?
