’Tis the shard of glass you wield That will slice into my dignity Cutting me where flesh does not yield Whenever you have the opportunity I may have wronged you in the past But sir, it was not intentional Onerous aspersions I did not cast Although my actions unconventional I provided you with an inch of suggestion And you expropriated a mile of my generosity A proposal in the form of a rhetorical question Does not qualify you for any reciprocity
I say I love you, you say you love me more We do not agree, and so we argue until evermore
I can actually feel how they are in love with the challenge of hurling words at each others…
Yes quite a dysfunctional relationship! Thanks Bjorn 🙂
You do this form so well! Glad you shared
Thanks Jilly…I had fun 🙂
Sonnets can be fun–I went with humor on mine, but all the MTB prompts, working with classic forms, for me are adventures in word-smithing. My own free verse style gets tweaked as things appeal to me.
Yes Glenn. I am enjoying this too. I regard as a challenge and it pushes me to wordsmith as you say! Thanks for reading 🙂 There is a lot to read this week isn’t there?
Well done, Christine. Sonnets have recently become a fascination of mine.
Thanks Joey. Yes, me too. I like trying something different 🙂
Wonderfully done! 😊💞
Thanks you so much 🙂💕 I had fun with this one.
Great! My pleasure! ❤️
Very nice poem!
Thanks Irene! 🙂💕
I’m OK as long as they don’t make me count syllables just yet! LOL 🙂
Never count syllables… feel the 5 beats instead… then it’s much easier.
Nicely done, Christine.
Thank you so much. I’m beginning to love Sonnets! Go figure 🙂
I’m not quite there yet, lol.
Thank you so much! 🙂💕
An exceptional piece that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Thank you so much Ivor! 💕🙂
Nice lines: “I provided you with an inch of suggestion
And you expropriated a mile of my generosity”
Thank you Frank! I really appreciate it 🙂
