Chelsea, You Spell With, Rhapsody, Sublime... (Australian/Bowlesian Sonnet )

Chelsea, You Spell With, Rhapsody, Sublime.
The Thought Of You, Fills Me, With Butterflies.
Your Siren Song, Like A, Sweet, Lullaby.
So Raptured, I'm Left By It, Every Time.

You Play, Such Ecstasy, Upon, My Soul.
Nothing Matches, The Bliss, That You Bestow.
Intoxicated, I'm Left, Ever So,
Fascinated, Transfixed, And Captured, Whole.

Venus, Aphrodite, All Fall, To You.
With Such, Utter Magic, You Leave Me, Wooed,
By Every Inch Of You, I'm Left, Just Moved.
There's, No Heaven, Like That, Which You Induce.

With Such Pleasure, You Exhilarate Me,
Enamored, I'm Left, Within, Such Fancy...

    It's really crazy how poetry differs from one pen and the other. This was absolutely a great piece to read. I am pleased to be reading your poem.

    This form was absolutely a joy! Language wise, grammar wise, coherence, structure, it's a very strong piece! Sometimes I can be really in love with a certain poem, but it's not that easy to have a very well structured poem that impresses you both in literature and in the basics of the language it's written in!

    I was opening my eyes really wide and smiling to each sentence rhyming so naturally to the line before!

    I also shook my head in admiration twice by your descriptions of the beloved! There is no heaven like that you induce ? there is a 100 way to say that sentence but you chose the most creative !

    I'm addying this to my favorite reads and I really advice you to keep going for this style, you have a strong hold on it!

    Beautiful sonnet, pretty educative.
