Even love unreturned has its rainbow (Letter to my imaginary lover)

Oh, Shakespeare my darling, to thee I do speak
Of a time in my being, I wish we could meet

Your words and passion, in me I do seek
The Sonnet in you, that I search within me

This play in my heart, that I keep for thee
The need to write poems, for you to read

I desire a lesson, just you and me
Answers on rhythm and rhyming I need

I’m curious, your talent is so very clear
“Hell is empty and all the devils are here”

Your poetry makes my mind want to paint
To your words, my love I can truly relate

Hoping to find you, somewhere in me
with no style I’m lost, I just cannot see

Come to my dream, at least one time?
Give me your wisdom on midnight’s chime

O lover thou be mine, O lover thou be?
Would you, could you desire me?

My question therefore

To be or not to be?

Hello Terry, wonderful ode dwelling on Willy. I used to know several soliloquies by heart, it was at school. All forgotten.
I think the title and content are fine. As it's fairly long, I need to return for a second or third read.
Enjoyed, Gracy
