A day and night

A stolen meeting far away
A hotel room I booked by phone
A day and night where two can play
A single time I’m not alone
  A kiss a hug a slap and more
  A sigh a cry a sob a moan
  A different world outside the door
  A single time I’m not alone
A love we’ll keep throughout the years
A day that we will always own
A memory to stave off tears
A single time I’m not alone
  A stolen meeting far away
  A single time I’m not alone

Author notes

A Kyrielle sonnet, 14 lines in iambic tetrameter rhymed abaB cbcB dbdB aB where the capital Bs represent a repeated line, you are also allowed to rhyme aabB ccbB ddbB aB.

I wrote it slightly differently and reworked it so that instead of most lines starting with A they all did, not sure it works but you can tell me
