Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Publish a Love SonnetCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Publish a Love Sonnet

By Ché Blackwood

Your love may be hard to put into words, but it’s worth a try. Sit down this weekend with your special someone and memorialize your relationship by writing a love sonnet. You don’t have to be Shakespeare to put pen to paper.  The attempt of putting your feelings into words will be romantic enough.

First, both of you should sit down separately, away from one another, and begin to write. You can recount your first meeting, when you knew that he was the one or simply state how much your partner means to you.  Read your lists off to one another. Hearing why your cutie feels the way they do will make you fall in love all over again while also revealing what it is that they most adore about you.

Combine your lists and write a sonnet or poem together. Work as a team to make it rhyme while capturing your true emotions. Enjoy the collaboration, taking time to reminisce over old memories and forgotten experiences. Once it’s finished, find a Website or print publication that accepts submissions. Your love will forever be chronicled in time, placing a mark on the world and your heart. Even if your sonnet doesn’t get published, frame it and hang it in your house as a reminder of why the two of you are together.
