Random Sonnet!

I wrote a random sonnet! For a poetry contest! Hurrah! It doesn't have a title, though.

A name that to the world inspires fear
A name as grandiose as sky above
A name so soft to wipe away a tear
A name as coolly elegant as love
And once upon a time I had this name
That once upon a time was all I knew
But it was sold through magic's cruel game
And then my once upon a time was through
So now my fate's decreed, this wandering
From world to world and town to town I go
And while I travel I've been pondering
How do I find this name I used to know?
And only this name ever will suit me
And when I have my name I will be free.

Good one, Amanda! The first part of it seems a little repetitious though, maybe you might want to use that space to elaborate on the beauty of the name, or the way if flowed off the tongue so freely, or something. Also, you may want to separate it into the "abab cdcd dede ff" scheme like so: (might make it a tad more readable)

At any rate, good job! Great idea for a poem!
