Who Needs Love?

Useless device of those that fear solitude,
I will not succumb to your lusty allure
I prefer my lonely attitude
To the drama and heartache I strive to deter

The boys and girls preceeding me
That took the fiery road of relationship
Now claw at their agonized hearts, never free
(And I want nothing to do with it)

You keep your grip so tight on fools
That cling to hopes if only in vain
Hopes that their love clings to fairytale rules
To face the dead, icy weight of rejection again

You cut our wrists and be still untrue
Pathetic love, I don’t need you

Love the poem.  I'm the say way, I'm not one for love.  Pathetic obsessed weirdos to me.

Wow. This is so good, it really points out the pain love brings and also makes me feel thankful that my own relationship is good.

It is a sonnet.

It's written in Elizabethian form; you know, the kind Shakespeare used.

And thank you for the compliment!

As for my lack of iambic pentameter, I don't like the way it sounds. Left it out. It's not my style. :)

Ah yeah, I keep forgetting about Shakespearean, Italian is all my teacher taught in school. Good work anyways.

This is not a sonnet, it is not correctly counted by syllables as a sonnet is meant to be... it is a nice poem though and features impressive words. But really, don't call it a sonnet, it is not one.
