    Well, there's certainly blood coursing through your beating heart, Ben. You, quite simply, fell me with your ardent quill.

    I've seen this before in our house and I can't remember where. I think it might have been on a piece of paper while you were writing it , but I can't help feeling that that was ages ago. I think you've been working on this for a while?
    Aside from that, I'm thoroughly annoyed. The English sonnet you set me to write for work went disasterously - as I'm sure you'll find out :) - and it's extremely irritating that you can write these without struggling with the iambic pentameter, haha.
    I love the rhyming and smoothness. I'm not attempting to check the iambic pentameter to see if it's right - as I'm sure it is - as we both know I'm hopeless at it.
    The description and language used is descriptive and conjures up a vivid image. It's dark, but beautifully written. The title is clever and the context is brilliant. I really enjoyed it:)

      I don't think that you are as bad as you think by half. I will read your sonnet later and perhaps suggest/force you to post, as part of your work, you understand...

    Congratulations on the win, another deserving sonnet. I've always struggled with these so just give up but the flow just seems to come from deep within you.
    Fabulous as always,
