Love’s Mutation This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


More by this author
Release me swiftly from your red-rimmed eyes,
I can't bear contrived smiles anymore.
No more false greetings with your cheerful guise,
Relieve your cracking façade, I implore.
Sunshine-filled days and a happy semblance,
Amorous gazes during this sweet repose,
The pure lush seedling of this remembrance
Became rotten flesh of a with'ring rose.
Love is first a wild and wistful wing
Of which dreams fly beyond our volition.
Then love transforms to a tight tethering,
Thick frayed ropes of stifling suspicion.
In a perfect world, love has no restraint,
But nothing lives and matures without taint.

Finally, a proper sonnet with the right rhyme scheme. It is very amazing, I grant you that. It could be improved visually if you divided the quatrains from each other and the couplet by skipping a line.Again, it is the best sonnet I have ever seen.

Yeah, it is a rather large text wall.

I totally know how you feel about imagining yourself as a bard! And I would certainly listen to you; this sonnet is perfect; the way it flows and jerks back and forth in its healthy rhythm. Thanks so much for sharing it!

This sonnet is so beautiful! It tells a story in your mind as you read it. On a scale 1-10, i'd rate it at least a 100!
