Stephen, All your examples presented here in Sonnet form are strongly written in my opinion.
I may be wrong but I like the way you have divided it into stanzas strengthening the subjective form of 8 & 6 the turn in line reveals.
Another eye opener for me.
Thank You Michael

The structure of this Sonnet was popular back around the turn of the Twentieth Century. It highlights the turn (volta) and blends the conclusion into the argument, suggesting a forgone conclusion.

This is a favorite structure of mine for love Sonnets. It suggest to the damsel that the conclusion is predisposed and she has no other choice than to submit to the bard's charm.

Very well written, high hopes in the concept, which sonnets, especially love sonnets, have always incorporated - Peace - Ian

The Chains of Love (Shakspearian Sonnet)

This is not a sonnet the way The Bard wrote them. Your lines have four feet when they should posseess five feet. Yes, the meter is correct. There is not a perfct rhyme, but it does not take much for the rhyme scheme that is alnost flawless.

The diction is good and poetic and the meaning of the poem works out to our satisfaction. What spoils this good try is the title of it.You call it Shaspearian, but the number of feet per line does not makes it so. But you put a good effort here.

You can now order my book of poem on kindle. it sells for 2.99$
Just go to amozon.com and type my name Luis A. Estable or the name of the book" One Hundred Sonnets, Book Two."
I like you to passs the word, and if you could, leave a review after rading.
Thanks and the best to you!

Luis Estable
