All English Sonnets
You raised your eyes, fluttering heart did soar,
When you lowered them, dejected quickly dipped
One moment at the dizzying heights azure
The moment next down the dumps it slipped.
One moment rich with blessings, Next moment
A woeful wreck, discarded and forlorn,
Of all unrestful enterprise shore.
It slinks away and tries to circumvent.
The woe-asphalted road of love. Its woes,
With frantic throes have all my life spanned.
You smiled and left me stranded on my toes,
I whooped and romped and sinful outings planned.
With smooth panache, lifting arching brows:
“What happened?”- you impersonally deadpanned.
