    Evil’s Romantic Notion

    A lion’s breath sees evil waiting,
    frosted by the windows paling
    Waiting crouched and ready still,
    for evil from your mouth to spill

    Awaiting a closely quarted malice,
    inside the place you hold so deep,
    Deep in your heart, yet you frighten
    Fear enact by love,
    yet frightened by what love means

    Growing yet more fearful,
    by the thoughts of what will be,
    you cannot help but feel the forces
    evil as they seem attractive, take it
    for it is the form of what will be

    Inescapable the love and fear,
    like a poison drank and not yet treated
    Intoxicating, debilitating,
    patiently waiting to ease the pain,
    flowing in your blue line vein

    No movement dare you take,
    whilst the lion lies in wait.

    Among the most common forms of poetry through the ages is the sonnet, which by the 13th century was a poem of fourteen lines following a set rhyme scheme and logical structure. By the 14th century, the form further crystallized under the pen of Petrarch, whose sonnets were later translated in the 16th century by Sir Thomas Wyatt, who is credited with introducing the sonnet form into English literature.[96] A sonnet's first four lines typically introduce the topic. A sonnet usually follows an a-b-a-b rhyme pattern. The sonnet's conventions have changed over its history, and so there are several different sonnet forms. Traditionally, in sonnets English poets use iambic pentameter, the Spenserian and Shakespearean sonnets being especially notable.[97] In the Romance languages, the hendecasyllable and Alexandrine are the most widely used meters, though the Petrarchan sonnet has been used in Italy since the 14th century.[98]
    Sonnets are particularly associated with love poetry, and often use a poetic diction heavily based on vivid imagery, but the twists and turns associated with the move from octave to sestet and to final couplet make them a useful and dynamic form for many subjects.[99] Shakespeare's sonnets are among the most famous in English poetry, with 20 being included in the Oxford Book of English Verse.[100]
