    Sonnet

    Sonnet 1
    Your hair is rare and rich as golden thread;
    Your pair of lovely ears are spiral shells.
    All men would love to woo you to soft bed,
    When you have put them lost by your sweet spells.

    Your pair of smiling eyes are diamonds-like;
    The lips of yours are petals of red rose.
    And every man your sexy spine would hike,
    Until their mouth could reach your nodding nose.

    Yet you yourself corrupt yourself must not!
    Your mouth belongs to one unique kind kiss.
    Beseech I you do not your hymen rot,
    Because sometimes on bed could be bad bliss.

    Do not your beauty squandered on mere joy;
    In patience be you always, for the boy.

    Do not your beauty shame by wanton sex;
    Your cleanness is a part of golden grace.
    By keeping chaste, no men your trench annex;
    No sexual violence should defile your face.

    Yet if you let vile men you dominate,
    By first you crash and crack and crush your soul,
    Then limit your own boundless beauty state,
    Which leaves you nothing but a single hole.

    And then when that man shows, and sees and sighs
    O’er your corrupted beauty, he is sad,
    And wonders in his head with many whys:
    Why would your beauty be in ugly clad?

    You should preserve your clean white purity.
    Virginity lost acts no surety.

    How many toxic words has he implant’d
    Into your soul so that you have corrupt’d?
    Has he to you the words of love verse chant’d?
    If not, why would you be yourself disrupt’d?

    His stinky spoken words are effortless;
    You shall not be the first to be rehearsed.
    Too glib a mouth puts you directionless;
    Too much too sweet has your sweet body cursed.

    And yet my written symbols are sincere:
    My words my own, my words you only own.
    And in my words, my dear, you have no fear;
    In loving lines of mine my love has shown.

    So always not by ears you love; by eyes.
    In sight of words, my love shall tell no lies!

    And all the world’s a stage, we play our part:
    So some will grow in love; and some in hate;
    Endowed with charm are some without a heart:
    To fool the audience is thus their fate.

    They act their beauty, and with beauty play;
    And awful stories in foul words they tell;
    And walk in a bad awkward mincing way;
    They their black soul in graceful carriage sell.

    And yet you play not with your gilded look.
    React your beauty you in gracious styles.
    You are the pages of an endless book,
    By which one reads your whole with thousands smiles.

    How thankful I am read your climax to,
    Were you to say “this page of mine is you”.

    You, who will never meet me, shall love me!
    You hear not my sweet voice this sonnet reads;
    My handsome look your sharp eyes may not see;
    My wonderful physique your mind exceeds;

    You sense not my bewitchingly sweet smell;
    You feel not my amazingly soft skin;
    My disposition you can hardly tell,
    Yet you shall always read me with a grin.

    And not through senses you will feel me real,
    When our mentality is chained by words.
    I love you not. By words your heart I steal.
    So, words, words, words! You are my mind’s caged birds.

    And this attests that love is in the soul,
    When words alone can make sensations whole.

    Sonnet 6
    The sun that shines shall scarcely be the same.
    When warmth is warmth; when light remains its light;
    And yet my shadow shall its colour frame
    As sorrow seeps in my increasing height

    The moon that moans might not have difference.
    When never she her true sad face reveals
    My eyes could tell her cold indifference
    It wanes and waxes; when light from sun she steals.

    As seeds of sadness in my soul are sown
    When things around should change as fast as youth.
    And yet you come and carve love in my bone
    And say your love shall only be the truth.

    And then you shall become my sun and moon
    Your shining love is an eternal boon.

    The leaves belong to me, so much and lush,
    The rivers run for me, so long and strong,
    And butterflies around me dance and blush,
    And birds for me in high air sing a song.

    And thus from nature I have all sublime,
    My ears, and eyes, and nose, and tongue, and skin,
    Are all much satiat’d in any time.
    And happy all the time I should have been

    And yet your hair does not belong to me,
    I hear you not, nor smell, nor touch, nor lick.
    From far away could I you only see.
    The sight of you with him has made me sick.

    In words I write, to nature I shall tell:
    Not having you, too much is not too well.

    Sometimes when I of love a question make,
    Feel troubled am I, for love indeed is cheap,
    For seldom sweet it is a chocolate cake,
    And often toxins torture, make your weep.

    Unchanged the fact is beauty does decay,
    When nature draws with faltering time’s pen.
    So huge a cost these poor investments pay.
    Should I in love to grow for worse and then?

    And yet you say we weep our tears in sweet;
    Our souls in timeless beauty strongly grow,
    And mental love is our forever feat,
    Which to the world in dreamy verse we glow.

    And then you always cast away my doubt,
    When you remind what love should be about

    Welcome to LitNet, lawrenceply.
    Your sonnets are tragically wonderful. Enjoyed reading them immensely.
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty

    I think you have the iambic pentameter technique down.
