Solitary Lover....Experimental Sonnet

I see you lit by my lamp at twilight
Looking at your form in the dusk.
The light from your soul is bright
Reflecting out from sparkling eyes.
Your subtle scent is that of musk
As softly, a night creature cries.
My solitary dreams are of thee, and
Thy lips in dreams sweeter than wine
In shadows outlined deep I see
The bitter taste of your absence.
Make affirmations that you are mine
Louder by the present silence.
I see you lit by my lamp at twilight
My solitary dreams are of thee.
