Missing Heart

Missing Heart

A Poem by Allen Smuckler
"

This is my first attempt in this style (villanelle), thanks to Mark... I hope it works...

"





Dreams of embraces are miles apart.

We shared our youth on that first fateful day,

I promise my love I’ll return for your heart.

 

We traveled, tasted, and tried to be smart.

April has passed and cascaded to May.

Dreams of embraces are miles apart

 

Trestled and leaf-like, we dared to restart.

All the good deeds and desires would stay.

I promise my love I’ll return for your heart.

 

Touches and kisses that dare to depart;                                  

will soon be alerted and find their way.

Dreams of embraces are miles apart.

 

Palpable landings and paths will rechart.           

Nothing can act like a miracle play.

I promise my love I’ll return for your heart.

 

Sculpted, molded, and painted fine art;

remembering moments beyond display.

Dreams of embraces are miles apart

I promise my love I’ll return for your heart.

Love either distant or close can be welcomed or unwanted...but nevertheless it builds who we are. I believe that and your writing is wonderfully composed to make me remember that.

It definitely works :) I like the repetition; its like a sonnet or a song and gives it a nice cadence. Its lovely and a bit sad but I like that. It appeals to my helpless romantic side.

That makes sense. I should try exploring styles and learning more of the technical point of poetry.
Perfect in every way, i love to read and write Villanelles. If this is your first attempt you can be very proud of yourself....
