Silver Lining

Silk scarved words; silver lined apocalypse- A distant stars regret will not ever Surmount rash amounts of emotion, this Disgusting leak of Heart, preyed on. Never To match sunstroked day breaking; wint'ry Fragments protrude strangely from corpse smiles Which speak speak drifting incantations with me, A deaf mute, caged by the shine of your eyes. Traversing a circle of little Death, A cycle of red and blues: cardiac Arrest of the sweetest sortings; now to mesh Touch with sultry glances that counteract Vocal chords on the offensive. Nothing Beyond other's whispers, not worth hearing. "Silver Lining" Jenna-Nichole Conrad Wordsmith (Disclaimer: I could not find a correct, per-se, form to put this under. The rhyme scheme and syllable counting match Shakespearean Sonnets, but I would consider this more of a 'Free Verse' Sonnet. As there was no proper category for me to submit this under, and I do not want readers to believe I am submitting wrong or falsely promoting my work.)

Jenna-Nichole, oh, it definitely IS a sonnet, a modern sonnet! I've just begun educating myself on this exciting type of sonnet, which is often characterized by near rhymes, enjambment and loosened rhyme schemes. This blew us away! Keep writing in this style is my suggestion... it is obviously your distinct voice we heard, fresh and dazzling. Congratulations, Cyndi

Thank you guys so much! I'm so glad other poets enjoy what I write. It makes me feel far better than I do (I figure as an artist one is supposed to hate everything they create. Part of the whole Starving Artist/Tortured Genius persona, haha). I very much enjoy taking traditional forms and tweakin' them my own way; guess I did good on this one, considering I won a contest! I honestly had no idea I did.

So much enjambment, I have never seen this much enjambment in a sonnet, it is like a free verse sonnet? especially since you use no common rhyme and all half or slip rhyme, I'm really not sure the [;] & the [:] are warrented? I do think this is a very special and unique write but I am not sure it would be called an English or Shakespearian sonnet [which seems to be the rhyme pattern you have laid out?] Do please label it at the bottom as to which type of sonnet you wrote? You've given me alot to think about! Light & Love
