For I will mend thee

Tis you assume yourself so badly broken
Darkened blood doth flow from deep hollow eyes
Cognoscente of empty words being spoken
Discourse heavily steeped in rotten lies
Smashed by the chariot of living proud
Severed by the sword of earthly beings
Whom once you gave your soul but hence have vowed
never shall you dally with such feelings
I will reach down and pick you up softly
And charge your fractured heart with radiance
Your eyes with azure blue and loftily
Soar you higher and highest in your stance

Come hide yourself a while within my wings
Be still, hear the earth, tis for you she sings

For I will mend thee

Artist's Description

A Sonnet – or at least my attempt at one!
A sonnet consists of 14 lines, each line containing ten syllables and written in iambic pentameter, in which a pattern of an unemphasized syllable followed by an emphasized syllable is repeated five times. The rhyme scheme in a Shakespearean sonnet is ababcdcdefef gg; the last two lines are a rhyming couplet.
