Poetry Prompt 35 – Consider Metre #poetry #poem #amwriting
This is the first sonnet that I have ever written, and I am not sure I have the idea down right. I tried to work in metre, but I am not sure I got that right either. It was a fun experiment though.
A Sonnet to Desire
“Freedom from desire leads to inner peace.” ~ Lao-tzu
O Desire, do not hold me so!
You, a rogue with a wicked tongue
To seduce me into your bed
One night with you would do me harm
Your kisses are as sweet as wine
And your touch, charged by Cupid’s bow
Your devilish smile stirs my blood
Your stare captures my pounding heart
O the turmoil you put me through!
You will take then leave me all alone
Let me go, Desire–tempting soul
It is peace and freedom I need
