After Lockdown

Form: Ivorian Sonnet 41

You ask me what is the first thing I want
After lockdown when there is no saying can’t
When the world is our oyster to explore
When you, my love, and I can dance wild
The fires of lust demanding even more
I want to bring you breakfast in our bed
I want to share time, dinner, and fine wine
Between heated sex and the day ahead
I want those moments so sweet and divine
No more taking for granted the before
The virus locked us down with words unsaid
I want to shout it out that ‘you are mine’
Now my love is proud and I’m confidant
Your kiss is where my lips have always smiled

  1. Breakfast in bed? It would have to be spectacularly indulgent and cooked by someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of fast food; getting tired of all this over-healthy smashed avocado on rye bread, and it would have to be a hotel in Venice, don’t want to be anywhere within a 500 mile radius of home !
