He Says, She Says – A Sonnet

He Says, She Says – A Sonnet

’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

Loving Cup

Loving Cup – Sonnet


Come drink from my silver cup of love
and taste the nectar of the gods
Listen to the coo of the mourning dove
Perched on the bough defying the odds
'The wine will relax your tenseness'
Said he assuredly to the young maiden
She turned, aware of his immenseness
His weight the look of the heavily laden
She accepted the drink with pleasure
As he guided her to the place under the tree
She noticed in her cup the very large measure 
'Why sir', she said, 'is all of this for me?'
 
'Please my dear, drink it down it will help you'
As he purposely plied her with Satan’s brew

In response to:
DVerse Poets Meeting at the Bar hosted by Bjorn
Tonight Bjorn is hosting and has challenged us to
write a Sonnet.  This is my first attempt at the form. I chose
a Shakespearean sonnet which has a rhyme scheme in
three quartets followed by a couplet (containing the volta) as follows. 

ABAB
CDCD
EFEF
Ending with the Concluding couplet
