Nothing wrong

An early night to rest my aching head.
I feel you lie beside me on my bed
And so I turn to loving you instead.
A night with you cures all that’s wrong with me.

You kiss me as you come to me each night.
And everything you do to me is right.
As long as you are there to hold me tight.
If I’m with you there’s nothing wrong with me.

And all day long I work and think of you.
Of how I wish that I could be with you.
I would be feeling all the things you do.
You’re in my head, there’s nothing wrong with me.

Together is the only way to be.
As then there can be nothing wrong for me.

Author notes

I love triplets, I am learning to write sonnets. I have never seen a “triplet sonnet” until now. A sonnet is three rhyming quatrains and a rhyming couplet, all lines decasyllabic and ideally iambic. If that’s an acceptable description then this is a sonnet.

Rhyming scheme AAAB CCCB DDDB BB In my triplets I like the last line of each quatrain to be repeated or developed and I have repeated that here, don’t see any reason why it can’t be done that way or with normal “B” rhymes.
Anyone like the idea? Anyone ever seen one before?
