Love Sonnet

***This was written in 8th grade. Our not-so-bright teacher wanted the class of 13 year olds to write a romantic love poem. I felt left out because I'd never even been in a relationship, must less been in love. I'm writing this to the best of my memory.***

Been warned of it's forever price

Laying one's head upon another's shoulder

The rampant beat of a heart

The thing that binds brother to brother

Unsuccessfully depicted in art

 

The thing I speak of is love

Will I fly away with it, as if I posess the wings of a dove?

 

***I got an A***
