It’s all about you (Sonnet)

by - Mr. Darcy   Feb 11, 2020

As fluting beaks rejoiced the waking sun,
I knew your furrowed heart needed a balm.
Although I thought it obvious and done,
I’d write a Sonnet, what could be the harm?
You say your life revolves around just me
And each morning is now worth waking for.
So, with a smile I pen what I believe,
reciting songs inside my very core.
My swirling ink quickens with ev’ry beat,
A swan ballet swimming across each smile.
Such truths cannot be formed from cold deceit,
Lyrics of love will play the longest while.

Your feathered words awoke a passion kiss.
Your love for me, makes this, a life of bliss.

    Oh, Mr. Darcy, this was quite lovely! I just want to sigh after that last line, it's so genuine and promising, like this life is worthwhile, and their love is the ultimate glory in your days.

    There were two lines I personally felt sounded a bit awkward, but completely my opinion. I don't write Sonnets so I give you props of course, and everything else flowed effortlessly...

    "reciting songs from in my very core."

    - The phrasing of "from" paired with "in my very core" was not something I'd heard before. I usually hear "from within", so the phrasing kind of made me read twice and felt a bit off.

    "Lyrics of love will last the long last while."
    - The repetition of "last" threw me off and it seemed like this could be worded better.

    Only my silly thoughts though ;)

    There's a reverence and passion and honesty in this love that seeps through each line. Thanks for sharing this!
