Lost Adrift





This is my first Shakespearean sonnet. I have learned why so many fear them. They are difficult and a challenge to write. There are many styles of sonnets and I chose the Shakespearean to begin my endeavors with this form. rules: 14 lines, 10 syllables each, iambic meter, and a rhyming scheme off abab, cdcd, efef, gg.

Beautifully written, a powerful song of heartbreak and betrayal. Very romantic and tear-drenched. Well done!

Sonnets are hard indeed, I've yet to write one I'm satisfied with. But you've done some really neat things with this one, ideas turned different ways and a very effective mournful cadence. Your hard work was worth the effort. Nicely done.

Dear River

Its very very beautiful... I enjoyed your Sonnet and I could see how difficult it is to bring it all together...
Your words ' She longs to hear his voice... passion feel indifferent' so powerful depiction of her yearning... I enjoyed it all.
Thanks for sharing...

(sigh).. when love is lost, it is well.. lost! :( The way we lost it simply doesn't matter.. be it death, betrayal, jealousy or boredom...
And then, all that's left is a memory sailing unguided on a perturbed ocean within the mind...

Loved your sonnet, River...
It's very beautifully written, my dear... sad, but lovely!
And kudos for your superb job on the sonnet!
