Forget About Love (Shadow Sonnet)

Forget About Love, wish I could forget,
Why should I have to feel this, tell me why,
Get on with my life, guess its what I get,
Try to move on, it feels like I don't try.

Hearts weren't meant to break, well tell my heart,
All I want is to be happy thats all,
Depart from this pain, but I can't depart,
Call your name, now I wish I didn't call.

Around me the walls close in, all around
Feel like nothing, nothing is what I feel
Down on my knees, my broken heart sinks down
Steal all my pain away, god please just steal

Above me the ceiling falls from above,
Love forgot me, I'll Forget About Love.

The Shadow Sonnet was created by Amera M. Anderson, may be written in any sonnet style. The Shadow takes place at the beginning and ending of each line as the words are identical or homophonic. Since all poetry was originally meant to be sung or recited out loud, homophonic words are acceptable, these are words that sound alike such as see and sea(Rules: 14 lines, 9 or 10 syllables per line.

    Excellent write, with such restrictions. I loved the way you wrote this. Your choice of words was good. I really liked the way it flowed, that is hard to do sometimes in formed poetry. Great Job!!!

    Peace, Joe

    Great job..for one form poetry is sooo hard so i give you props for that..but the flow was great and so was the emotion you put into it. It was definitely felt. Keep up the great work.
