Knocked Up - A Sonnet
What is a Sonnet?
By definition, a sonnet is a poem that consists of 14 lines with a fixed rhyming scheme.
While I have dabbled in poetry before, I have never actually written a sonnet before, at least that I remember. I did take several creative writing classes so maybe I have before and it just didn't impact me. Then, the other day I came across a wonderful sonnet done by a fellow hubber, AustinStar and decided I would try my hand at this rhyming game.
While mine is no Ode to a Pizza, it does follow the structure needed to be considered an original "Italian/Petrarchan" style sonnet, and not just a regular piece of poetry. This means the firs toctet will likely introduce a conflict, while the sestet is tries to resolve the conflict.
Doing a sonnet can be a bit of a challenge, however it is also a fun piece to try and write. It is also a great way to exercise that creative brain.
A young man once proposed to me
Without even a first date
He said loving me was just his fate
But I told him we would have to wait and see
If we were really meant to be
So one fun and crazy night we did mate
Not so long later, I found out that I was late
And now we both know that neither of us again would ever be free
A day fresh in your mind
Nine months later and it was time to go
I pushed and screamed with all my might
The pain was intense and I thought would never go away
The process was sweaty and went way too slow
And he said I put up one hell of a fight
But when I met my baby, I knew I would never ever forget that day!
