Ben, you are most definitely the sonnet master. What a fabulous piece. I will not comment on the meter etc because I really haven't got a clue on it so will leave that to Michael lol but I will try my best to look at the content and give my view
1: A great opening. If love is not felt then how are we meant to feel it from a wondrous love poem like this one because if love isn't shown then how else are we able to feel it?
2: I am nodding here because love and the words I love you are (or can be) completely overused and said just because somebody says it to you so said out of respect but to show that love we have to follow then with actions not just say those words.
3: I love this. I imagine blood dripping and writing instead of ink because you have probably been writing of your love for some time. Break the cage, get over those walls and love.
"Sometimes, the act of love is far too trite,
To quite convey the feelings that I own;"
I think this is such a great line. You're trying so hard to convey things where their depth cannot TRULY be shown. I think that is so sweet and so frustrating and I completely understand! That is why poetry is ... amazing. I find it an extremely helpful way (sometimes the only way) to really explain what we otherwise would never be able to in normal conversations or little romantic favors- ALTHOUGH, the reader can definitely tell you still do try! -lol- ;)
Cute and obviously very sincere.
This is impeccable. ...I can feel the love and sweetness from the start till the end. . sometimes we give it all and all we need or want is to hear and feel something in return that the love we gave and nurtured will be noticed or appreciates by our lovers.. .I will add this to my favourite coz this reminds me of what I said to Marvellous. ...That love needs to be nurture equally not by only one. ..
It took me a minute to say what I wanted to without sounding weird, LOL. This is just so delicate and beautiful, and I'm afraid this is going to sound stupid, but sounds almost like something out of a Shakespeare play it is so lovely. Anyway, this was wonderful.
