...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!

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
My Chainsaw Meowth is currently missing! If you have a lead or think you know something, PLEASE PM ME! I am desperately searching, and I dread the possibility that I may never find him...
On a side note, if anybody can answer the following question right, then they get a mystery prize! *Must have a Gen V game to claim prize*
Question: What the heck did Jinora do in the finale?! I don't get it! I know 90% of you won't know what I'm talking about, but I need an answer!
