Answer to sonnet 116....Shakespeare Sonnet

I'll show you how this union of two souls
Can be endangered. Souls are attracted,
Drawn like strong magnets to unite, be whole,
Their lights might fade, fear to get refracted.
Oh yes! there is a constant risk of spite
That feds on pain of other gentler hearts,
It is the cross some have to bear as plight
Once they are hit by Cupid's sharpened darts.
Who'll be the stronger one, they will find out,
Love's not Time's fool, as Shakespeare said before;
Each act of spite might sow small seeds of doubt,
Till once united souls will turn to war.
Love alters not, within a month or year,
But payment has to come for those who sneer.
