If I had known that I could have a friend
More loyal than the royal Queen's brigade,
I would have made my selfishness an end
And for a quick delivery have prayed.

Before we met I thought it left to chance
That I would play the game of life alone
Abandoned had I all thoughts of romance
Until we made our partnership our home

But how, my doctor, shall we now progress?
No longer do I wish to tempt my fate-
Uncertainty my impulse does oppress,
What if my own decisions come too late?

If I'm the brain to your unfailing heart,
Then please, I beg you, tell me where to start.
I need a prompt to fit this into, I imagine Sherlock would start with this, and John would reply with the limerick I'm about to upload.

This is utterly wonderful. Now I'm hoping for the next prompt on oneword to be "poetry slam" (damn it, it's two words!!).

Well, when I get a prompt that fits, I'll work these two into a story. You'll see them up there eventually.

Oh God, yes. I love reading and writing sonnets; mine about the Reichenbach fall isn't NEARLY as good! Well done!
