A sonnet a day for February 2014 - day 8 - 20/20

And what about the way we window shop
For love like dress and suit, diamond and ring
Like humans are rags to wear and to swap
To parade and to own like car and bling

I'd rather alone than pretend with you
What good is my reach if you jerk and pull
Only have room for a dance card for two
There are others you need play till you're full

Love does not hurt, it is kind and it's true
Love lifts and it holds, it warms me at night
Love does remember the kind things you do
Love is concerned and it stays through the fright

Maybe time has taught us what we now know
Lovers need distance to ready and grow
