My Attempt at a Shakespearean Sonnet

Deceit

Passion leads fire, hand in hand
One burns whilst the other desires
As thou exclaims ‘it has scorched thine land’
Passion pleads to bring forth that liar

Thou may claim that one is greater
That Passion may outweigh sorrow
But Fire can destroy thy creator
As thou succumbs to tomorrow

Broken promises outweigh pleasure
And lies burn through bliss
Be careful not to measure
Too quickly, or you might just miss

For Passion brings fire
And Fire likes to conspire
