Sonnet 18 spin off

Shall I compare thee to a winter’s tale?  
Thou art more chilling and more turbulent, 
Rough winds do shake the nightshade buds so pale,
And summer’s lease hath gone too far distant.

sonnet of my shinny comet

“Beauty in the comet
I may die for your beauty just as a poet
Sonnet of my shiny comet,

You shake my legs by your bright eyes
That shines like diamonds falling down your thighs
Leaving me smiling like a gambler meditating the dice,

Your skin is akin to that of a toddler
Are you really older?
Or you just grow faster?
My comet, you just look young and sober,

I guess I’ll collapse 
when I meet your soft lips
Will I even hold those romantic hips?
I just can’t draw you on my poor ribs
Because I don’t stay within the tips.”
