What prison of pleasure holds this lover?

I’m lost so lost a prisoner am I
Delighting in the realms that hold me in
Just waiting for a moment to begin
And kiss the things I thought I knew goodbye
Aware somewhere there rests a hidden key
To every treasure locked up in my mind
The timeless pleasure only lovers find
Beyond a heaven’s star-swept melody
I see a sea of darkness and despair
A doubtful past which yearns to breath the light
Two arms to trust amid the cold bleak night
To care to share to bear I see it there
Profound I found her stare held prison’s prize
A passage that laid hidden in her eyes

    Martin, What’s not to like about such a clever, melodic Shakespearean-style sonnet?
    Respectfully, and with many thanks, Derdriu
