    ...I wonder if anybody is even reading these. Anyways, I decided to read the "Poetry Guide" in the sticky part of the poetry section and pick one. In my old poetry threads, I have never done what I have decided to half-attempt. What I am half-attempting:
    THE SONNET!!! (dramatic music)
    The sonnet may be the hardest form of poetry. Given I don't have that deep of a poetry vocabulary(ex. iambic perimeter, quatrain, etc.), I picked my criteria from the brief part I did understand:
    -14 lines, 10 syllables each
    -ABAB CDCD EFEF GG rhyme scheme
    -Also, sonnets tend to have a 'philosophical idea' or message within them as the guide stated. Given that this is my first time attempting one, and that I'm only going on a half-attempt for the first try(I left out some criteria...), I will probably not have an idea too philosophical.
    A final note before I begin:
    If anyone is reading this, tell me the rest of teh criteria in simple terms so I can try a rewrite. I need feedback before a second attempt!

    THE SONNET:
    Valentine's Day, hearts in a daze today
    The big dance is happening tomorrow
    For chocolates and hearts, guys have to pay
    With money spent, love is your wallets foe
    ...
    Girls desire a lovely teddy bear

    Some people never get asked to the dance
    If not asked, their hearts shall suffer despair
    Boys stare at cute girls as if in a trance
    ...

    Hearts are broken, relationships are born
    Cupid has a busy job, spreading love
    Girls want a new dress, one that is not worn
    Plently of matches, Cupid makes above
    ...

    The day of the dance finally arrives
    Boys currently dancing with future wives
