He loves me not, he says with blushing cheek.
He'd rather die a fiery death than kiss
A girl with zero sex appeal, a geek
(he says it twice for extra emphasis).

So why the constant stares? I ask. He lies.
He hates the sight of me, he quickly shouts –
Without the scorn his panicked oath implies.
The dissonance contributes to my doubts.

Alone one day, he smiles at me; I gasp.
A joke? A lapse of judgment? Or perhaps
A glimpse of truth at last within my grasp!
I kiss his cheek and watch his walls collapse.

A victory for me, like striking gold.
For him, a death by kisses hot and cold.
My friend bet me 5 bucks I couldn't compose an anime-themed Shakespearean sonnet, complete with iambic pentameter, in under an hour (long story). Well ha! The joke's on her, because I totally did it. I call it, "Ode To The Tsundere". 

That'll be 5 bucks please! $$

EDIT: Are you serious? Are. You. Serious. 8 years on deviantart, and THIS is the submission that gets me a DD? Wow. Just...wow. Did NOT see that one coming. Glad I didn't make any bets on the subject ^^;

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-05-04
Ode To The Tsundere by Acaciathornis amusing, light-hearted, and even a little touching at the end while conforming to the restrictions of a sonnet. ( Suggested by TheLitanyofRa and Featured by GrimFace242 )

That's awesome. The language is a bit modern for the form but it works so well. Your rhyme and meter are flawless.

Yes! You deserve that money for that! :D I am awful at writing poetry (and I've tried), so lots of props and respect! :-) The subject just makes it that much better :D
