This form was invented by Amanda J Norton who writes on Allpoetry.com.
It is a sonnet consisting of two seven line stanza’s.
The first letters of each line form a two word acrostic, which must be alliterative.
The rhyme scheme is as follows: aabbcca abbccdd
Each line is 14 syllables although iambic heptameter is not required.
Although I inquired, the author gave no indication that a volta is required.
It must be about a “dark” topic.
Dangled Darling (Amanda’s Dark Sonnet)
D “Do you love only me?” she asked. She asked me every day.
A “And if you do, why do we do most everything your way?”
N Now she was perfect starting out, complying every night
G glad I’d removed her from the street and made her work-load light.
L Less happy though was she to know that I used chains and whips
E engaging her with other girls and taking her on trips
D down in my dungeon where unseen and slimy creatures play.
D Don’t do this, and don’t to that, more resistant day by day,
A and naturally I can’t have that. Mine is a vampires site.
R Retraint now hold her to the wall where all may suck and bite
L Lenore, Lenore you’re free no more we’re taking vampire sips
I in fact the slimy creepy things seem to prefer your hips.
N Now when we’re though and done with you you’ll be one of us my dear.
G Go now to sleep my love; you look delicious hanging here.
