Heart, Soul, and Rough Edges — A Gypsy Journey of Words and Wonder

Make Visible: The Villanelle

I wrote this Villanelle several years ago for a Valentine challenge on Poetbay.com.

The rhymes aren’t exactly right, but it does make a unique Valentine poem.

 

Valentine

Cupid’s arrows pierce my heart,
Despite love’s shifting sands
Never will we two part

Card stolen from Wal-Mart
More than eruptions from my glands
Cupid’s arrows pierce my heart

To get to you I took the BART *
IPOD plays my favorite bands,
Never will we two part

I feel the sting of his golden darts
Make of me any demands
Cupid’s arrows pierce my heart

Dressed up like a dime-store tart
You held me in your gentle hands
Never will we two part

Your eyes travel my Holy Lands
Ready for your commands
Cupid’s arrows pierce my heart
Never will we two part.

* BART-Bay Area Rapid Transit
