Where Is Thy Sting

Exquisite Queen, conclusion to my quest, I burn bright now that I have you in sight. Too long I've lazed about the plain at rest, I'll dare desire, let's love by divine right. No more do I cheat the bite of love's reign I have come prepared for our promised rain, Let's shake off all the rust and end the pain, For I am your lion, see my mane, Though, still, I am a King in cheap clothing, While you're so many curves for which I've sighed, Let's run, let's fly passed all fearful loathing, You leave your hive, honey, I'll leave my pride. Magnificent woman, my monarch true, Where is thy sting? I've longed so long for you.

Ryan, I imagine you are so proud of this sonnet. During its initial read I was unaware of the rhyme. I was drawn in by your message of courage and commitment to your love. A lion and bee, referenced throughout with word association makes this a clever, captivating work. I will add (for what it's worth), I am typically not enamoured by sonnets. Your Sting sonnet is multi faceted, highly original, deserving of highest praise.
