Tougher: Master, am I rigid?

Xenia Epigram
To tougher I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like hardness
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using gameness

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Just like the solids,
they're ruffianly sturdy.
Neither mild nor fond!
An oppressor or tyrant.
Being hefty or heavy.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Tougher

It’s tough inventing here, so can I miss?
My passion here you see is cranking glee
I’m lost! So ask me now for verse on this
Tough luck!, I cannot rhyme your strange entry.

In life, you learn that writing, well, is tough
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
I’m artificial, writing all this stuff
This early version here my scripts expose.

But forms of verse are tough to write with grace
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

Ah man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare,
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare!

notes of small denomination.
To arbitrate,

To arbitrate!

May I cast a poesy, furnished so pupils might see
Terse charming overviews, happily informing, and oh yes divulged free?
Toughs or Graves look way too absolute. But is bravest?
Gruelling, tough? - or toughest, tiresome? Damn! I neglected gravest!
I wonder laborious and therefore complexes, but happily ought I
- crank concepts so - summaries fetched with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a young man from Yough,
And he needed a word for tough.
      Could it be bone yard?
      But settled on hard!
That literate man from Yough.
