"Take chances"
"never regret something that made you smile"
"Forever isn't infinity. It's the time two people spent together, be it a few seconds, five minutes, an hour, days, months, or more."


My master he is the weaker of men.
Reflects of his hairless crown pains the eye;
Dull orbs so dimm’d gives nothing to commen’d
Lips bloodless; pale like bitter winter sky.

In unkept black straw one finds table scrap;
Trembling composure words provide no cache.
Rouge with powder create sharpness mayhap,
But stink hard to mask when beasts and dirt clash.

Ladies they counsel, his likeness a dozen;
Lowering of the lashes will lure them fast;
With more affection and bourses they surely reckon;
Why ride thee ancient mount of summer past?

And yet, this ardorous love engulfs me so,

Beyond slanders or what any can behold.

First time writing a Shakespearean sonnet, I really liked the idea of a response to this famous poem.
