Pirate’s Plight

Pirates Plight (Faux Shakespearean Sonnet)

.

.
Forsooth! Fair maid hath slipped the knot

That tightly bound these hands of mine.

Oh what fair wind did change my lot!

Twas judged to swing upon the vine.

.
I’d thought these evil deeds of I’d done

Twould stretch this misbegotten neck,

When captured at the point of gun,

Upon defiant pirate deck.

.
Sweet wench took note, unknown to me.

She took to heart my fated plight.

It seems love’s spark was meant to be.

Once love’s price paid, I fled the night.

.
I do confess, that I shall miss

Her probing hands and soft sweet kiss.
Adeau!

.

Writing Prompt
Write a poem in any form or style with Betrayal as the central theme.
Author Notes

She wanted more.


This is a Sonnet that is near Shakespearean, except it is written in iambic tetrameter rather than pentameter, plus I added an additional word.
