I had to write a sonnet for my writer's workshop class, and I actually made it work for the structure of a Shakespearean sonnet, even if it's kind of crappily written. I am very aware that it's probably extremely cliche. Don't judge. (Attempt to) Enjoy!

"December Sonnet"

 

 

The way that we loved was a winter snow.

The bitterness stings like a fresh frostbite.

If you looked at us now, you’d never know

That we were much more before that cold fight.

 

We used to fly like the swirling snowflakes

In the prettiest of winter breezes,

As we laughed across those ice-covered lakes,

Blocking the cold with warm hugs and squeezes.

 

But then the wind chill began to descend,

And we frigidly said our last goodbye.

I sit and shiver for my missing friend,

The one who said he’d never make me cry.

 

My heart is lonely under the new moon.

This winter lives on, ‘cause you left too soon.
