One cannot find love in a cramped ballroom
So I go where wine flows plentifully,
Amidst the talks, a whiff of your perfume,
Shall we gamble? You take my hand and we
Dance away, O Love, let me take command
For our destiny was sewn in the stars.
You are my goddess and I, as your man,
Adore the form of you and all you are.
Shall we bask in the moonlight, skin to skin
Whilst the bedsheets tangle around our feet
Until your perfume permeates within
Every inch of my chambers, soft and sweet?
O my love, you may believe me crazy
But I am enamored with your body.

Written for dVerse’s Meeting The Bar: Pop Sonnet prompt: choose a modern popular song, preferably one that everyone knows, and re-write it as a Shakespearean sonnet. The idea is to let the readers guess the song.
Any guesses? Hint: Doesn’t that last line sound familiar? *wink wink nudge nudge, guys*
