Two Villanelles For Love

Villanelle: Love’s Declaration

I wish your life was mine to tell,
   To scribe each day with utmost care
And so I write a Villanelle!
Your eyes a dance of caramel
   That taste delight with every stare
I wish your life was mine to tell
I pen your laugh, a silver bell
   As bright as song, too soft to tear
And so I write a Villanelle!
Your voice, once raised, a righteous swell
   Your hands, contrite, a bashful pair
I wish your life was mine to tell
One day we’ll build a citadel
   Inside our stained glass hearts may lair
And so I write a Villanelle!
I’ve writ your joy and its impel
   Each line a cup for us to share
I wished your life was mine to tell
And so I write a Villanelle!

Villanelle: Love’s Rumination

I fear I might lose you as well
My ardent light in sinking lair
And so I write this Villanelle
The brightest stars only foretell
A blank page death, entropy’s snare
I fear I might lose you as well.
Your eyes of burning caramel
I wish to taste with every stare
And so I write this Villanelle
Your laugh, too short, a dying swell
Your hand and mine, too rare a pair
I fear I might lose you as well.
Upon your tears I wish to dwell,
Those sparkling mirrors to ensnare
And so I write this Villanelle
Anxiety, love can’t dispel
But which is ruler, which is heir?
I fear I might lose you as well
And so I choose a Villanelle
