Commandments stone on slave-prince mountain maul
Less pay rebuke from quiet burdens pained
Thy new deems obsolete hath heaven call
Weeping doves cast crimson, edicts inane
Virtuous bride veneer exalting fifth
Wed tender beguil’d hands dearth commonplace
Forsake poor ills cherishing dev’lish sift
Abstract His binding ring; expunge thy grace
Hath said adoration shall relish flaws
Perhaps claimed forth heeding His hail and beck
Yet so accept tragedies, tender claws
Vehement joys s’rrounding thy face and neck?
Discern, breed sheep, elude, lest He appease
Exist no truer words abode of these

I feel kind-of dumb, since I had to read it a few times to get it. And even then, I still needed the side caption or I would still be confused. But, it's beautiful. The words just flow together, you know? Whether you know what it's saying or not, it still sounds right.

Sorry to say but the wording is very complicated. It appears to have a story and some meaning behind it, but the complicated wording takes alot away from readers such as myself.

Mmm... I'm not quite sure that the author understands all the words. I mean, maybe she has a general idea, but doesn't quite get what part of speech they are or typical connotations. I knew what all the words meant, but they were strung together in a way that didn't make much sense.

Shakespeare  sonnets were meant to be interpreted in various ways. One of them may have used metaphors. But this poem is undeniably AMAZING! I always have trouble using the rhyme schemes withoutloosing the overall meaning. ITS INSPIRING!

There's no extended metaphor in the second quatrain. There should be one since I'm assuming you're writing a shaekspearean sonnet

An extended metaphor is not a characteristic of a Shakespearean sonnet. ;)
