Celestial beauty sparkles, shining in mirth.
It compliments my soul, my consciousness with grace.
My amorphous character refines the earth.
A white expanse, just lonely and cloudy space.

To divine to hide, I’m to wide too grasp.
I am every where, around everything.
I hold your planet in a loving clasp.
There is no greater master, lord, nor king.

Society's anger, greed, and jealousy give chase.
I rage. You apologize yet persist.
Fill me with dregs, noxious fumes. Such disgrace.
Even if it's late, yet you try to assist

What was once a thousand shades of blue, gone.
That perfect foreign hue left along with dawn.

I wrote this for my english class and since I liked the way it came out, I decided to post it. We are currrently doing Shakespeare, so its supposed to be a sonnet. I know I didn't use the unstressed, stressed pattern but please tell me what you thing ^_^

This is amazing. The mix of complex vocabulary and simple lines makes this poem haunting. Shakespeare would be proud!
