'my first sonnet'

angels speak in tongues, you speak in stardust.

soft soliloquies sound so seductive,
lies perfected by lips of distrust,
i know you've spun yours to be destructive.

broken hearts, broken minds, broken souls -
the result of the ones who desire you.
your secrets - hieroglyphs, pressed on a scroll.
i will find a way to decipher you.

the moon's rotation sparked your depression,
now your stars are all out of alignment.
i sing you this song with no discretion,
you are not one of god's failed assignments.

i know that part of god exists in you.
i know the devil blessed you with a curse.
white rose stained red, but from the concrete bloom'd,
please pay attention to the final verse.

i say this even though it might kill me,
i love you and i need you here with me.
indefinitely.

    This is an amazing first sonnet! I remember when I wrote my first, it felt new and interesting. When I wrote my first sonnet, I didn't have much confidence in myself, considering that sonnets can be difficult for some people, but you seem to have done very well!
