In telepathic dreams my lover's voice 
seduces from beyond a distant star. 
Enchanted by her song I face this choice-
to ply the void or worship from afar. 
In visions of the night she sways in dance,
her eyes aflame with passion and desire.
She beckons me to join in sweet romance, 
her plea the match that sets my heart afire. 
I've searched this world in vain for one so true,
from sea to sea my quest - futility! 
Relationships have always left me blue,
each one seemed destined to fatality. 

To love her is the answer to my prayer,
I'll ask the Enterprise to take me there.

This does not bode well....surely a recheck on your Vulcan logic Spock...this one reeks of Siren.

The meter is spot on. I love sonnets. I have never read one about space, until now.

She could be in space... Or perhaps just out of reach

finally seeing your reply to my long ago comment down here (I have that thing turned off, so I don't see replies to me). You said line ten was the line not iambic.actually, that line is just fine. It's the first line that got thrown off by the use of "ethereal" which I checked to be sure just now. It's pronounced e THER e al, so to make line one completely iambic, you could start with the word ethereal and change line one a bit. "Ethereal in dreams, my lover's voice...."

Dang you're right. I've been apparently mispronouncing that word my whole life. I'm on it!

Nice sonnet, Spockling. I love that last line - "I'll need a transport ship to take me there"! Pretty much sums up the gulf that has to be crossed... luckily you have The Enterprise.

You wont find your true love in space. Come down to earth and remember it takes two to tango. Lovely sonnet.

A bit young to have such a galactic crush aren't you, big ears? You're not like your father at all. He was a man of science - not this human love. You are going where no Spock has gone before.

Ahhh, but you're wrong. You need to see the TOS episodes All our Yesterday's and This side of Paradise. Happy watching

I think you can borrow your father Spock's transport ship! Very classy writing, SOS. The meter is nearly impeccable. I saw Sunshine writing a poem about Spock having no son . I made her aware that she was wrong!

Haha well she's not my biggest fan. Yes I try my best to write my sonnets in true iambic meter. Line ten isn't my best but I think the rest is decent. thanks for visit
