I love the mystical and beauty of this sonnet, the content is inviting and the message goes beyond mid evil and can be relatable to today. Sonnets have a strict format and I love sonnets however I would like to see this as a basic rhyme piece as well.. with a powerful flow ( I mean that just for my tastes and opinion) Its a beautiful poem dear Ben. <3
a sonnet eh, are you sure you're not straying outside your comfort zone? :)
A love sonnet is a beautiful thing, but i can see this is not a sweet fist love thing, not even a lust thing. No, it is a, oh my god, this love thing hurts when it goes wrong! So, what to do? We build protections, we try and save ourselves from getting heart broken. We build walls and sit there, triumphant in the knowledge that we are safe, heart intact and, sadly, alone!
As always, your work, especially with sonnets, is outstanding.
You've written a few poems now about dragons if I am correct so I wonder if you have been watching movies or perhaps playing some games with you children? I know I have become slightly hooked on the " How to Train your Dragon" movies over the last year (forced to watch more TV due to Covid haha!)
Anyway, I did really like this verse but, it was a sonnet after all so don't expect a trumpet fanfare from me :) The story made up for that though. I will give you that much :)
The tales are false: the dragon doesn't die
The word doesn't mad me stumble slightly in this line...I would have gone for didn't...not sure why, just sounds better to my ear. Anyway, Loved it....
