    Vicarious lover



    Like a restless Ghost you haunted my heart

    As the ever illusive chased mirage

    Grasping for your love tore my peace apart

    Through each embrace my love was camouflaged




    love for her blinded you from seeing me

    I became the vicarious lover

    Relishing the future I could foresee

    And all the treasures we would discover




    I realized my dreams could not compete

    With the reality you shared with her

    so my love I kept distant and discreet

    Trying to accept-friends is all we were




    Although this may not be true love fulfilled

    For now my heart may choose to love you still

    Hello Alexandra, How the heart will hunt love, to stalk in hope and wait the day. It's the waiting where love pretends love when the heart is empty. Another beautiful and tender poem verging on love and yet so far the heart's desire. Just lovely, melancholily so. Fond regards, Tony

      The rhyme in this sonnet-shaped lyrical reflection has a gently conversational flow; in three acts you capture unrequited love authentically, and with a frank poignancy.

      interesting, i liked the way this breathed, wafted, flowed to the ear, eloquent and you set up what to me is a bitter situation, but I suppose the solace is in the knowing love... Vicarious love hurts. I know how it feels, if I understand ya correctly... Affecting, cold-- restless ghost, chased mirage ... many elements together make up what I feel is a very good depiction of a situation-- --Solace in knowing, still feeling love. Thanks for sharing with us!

      Again, emotions deftly painted, even the difficult stance of unrequited love, all in sonnet form. You are the sonnet queen of the zone Alex!
