At my writing group we looked at sonnet's so I thought I'd give it a go. Sonnet's have a rhyme pattern like this: ABAB CDCD EFEF GG. They also have 10 syllables per line and a 'volta' in the 3rd or 4th verse which is a dramatic turnaround or statement. I hope you like it!

Sonnet - Foal

 

 

I am done with my graceless heart, truly.

For it only beats to make me survive.

It's taken me through stark streets unduly.

Broken into shards in his hands, deprived.

 

He took the moon from my eyes;  tore my soul.

I became an empty grave in the sun.

As frail and lax as a newborn foal

Distressed, from my hunter I could not run.

 

It is always darkest before the dawn

I awoke from my slumber in the Spring

I won't be that shell again or so drawn.

Hold it to up my ear and hear it ring.

 

Grief doth fade and hope doth thrive, from ashes

My all no longer under your lashes.
