This sonnet worked out well

yet never once the same

Indeed, it is not necessary, yet
it is a hoped-for aspect of the act --
the trustful giving which is unforgett-
able when first awarded whole, intact,
and pure, accompanied by expecta-
tion that it will be welcomed and embraced;
then touched, caressed, adored, and stimula-
ted toward a goal that is overt, yet graced
by innate beauty celebrated by
both images and words, repetitive
yet never once the same -- and in the eye
of the beholder what they freely give 
is therefore taken, held and then possessed
and for this reason are our minds obsessed.
