Sonnet 1, "Everything" ~ Uwais Coetzee

Everything of mine belongs to you.
My soul and mind are in your possession
More than once have I made this confession
My love is more vast than the sky is blue
You stuck my heart back together, like glue
These words I wrote down are filled with regret,
Because these words and your ears have not met
My courage is gone when I meet with you.

If only love, with your eyes you could see
If love were visible, you'd be bare
I know how you feel, you do not love me
Although you know I love you , you don't care.
You, alone are everything to me ,
But you found your everything elsewhere.
