Again, I wrote this for a class, it's half a sonnet... It's a love poem, I know, how cliche.

The Song of a Nightingale
 
Can a nightingale fly so high,
As what you have me feeling right now, or
Maybe she could show us how to love what
We have the ocean and the sand?
 
Tonight the darkness locates us floating
By ocean whirlwinds, drifting happily, passing us
Along, we’re listening to her music, grabbing hold of one another
As your hands caress my face a chill sends through my spine.
 
With our lips pressed firmly together, our bodies
lay as one, as the nightingale flies high above us, she too
begins to sweat and I swear
her song is of love but you laugh when as I say it.
 
I know that I should not feel this way,
But I’m sure your girlfriend will not mind.
