Spring Maiden

I once knew a maiden as fair as spring
Who stole my heart amongst the April rains.
Her eyes two emeralds, did not, but sing.
And I, the fool, so gladly kept my pains.
For what power had I over such love
In which I was a most willing captive.
No need was there to pray to God above,
For I had all my open heart to give
She had only to take all she wanted,
Alas, she broke my heart as if t'were glass.
A foolish man I was; left so haunted
By that spring time deceptive lass.
So now I write these hollow words in vain
To somehow express my well earned pain.

*Well this is new for me. A rough attempt at an Shakespearean Sonnet.

To Tell a Tale

It is an odd thing being a writer. These moods where you can see your world so clearly, and yet to put it on the page defeats you at every turn. I at times wonder how long it will take to complete this story. And is it merely the ambition of my youth that drives me to write it as swiftly as possible. I have time for this, should I not allow it then?

It seems to me at times that life is too short to idle in this creation of mine. That I must complete it in order to move on to some new ambition, some other task to set for myself. And yet, at times like these, when the world is demanding I write it, demanding to have the world know its tale, I look in askance for patience. Patience in my own ambitions which, by my very nature, are nearly boundless. This tale requires time, and thought, and it must be crafted not only for me, but those who would read it.

The ambition to succeed must also be coupled with the patience and subtlety of timing. And these two things more than anything in the world, make for awkward bedfellows. Alas, this must come to an end as the voice falls every dimmer upon my inner ears, and soon the clamour will begin again, and I must either endure until I am ready, or pick up my pen again and tell the tale.

I'd really appreciate comments on that sonnet I wrote. I really don't do structured things often, so it'd be nice to know what people think.

PATIENCE, WOFLEH. I was in the middle of writing a comment... :P

I wish I could be a better critique but I really don't have much to say. A few of the lines seemed a tad off for some reason, though I can't really place why. Overall though, I really, really liked it. The last few lines were the best.

A trickle of thought
Nothing more.
A whisper of a dream
Newfound inspiration.
Awakening.

What cruel parody is this?
That your face has been
Usurped by another.
And yet I am no nearer
To ending the self inflicted
Torture of my weary heart.

What happened to 'Existence in Denial'? We never found out what happened to John...

Eh...it went on hiatus when I started working 50+ hours a week, and I haven't put much effort into it since I've begun to seriously work on my novel.
