Missing Heart (villanelle)

Missing Heart (villanelle)

A Poem by Allen Smuckler


 

 

Dreams of embraces are miles apart.

We shared our youth on that momentous 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

reminds us of moments beyond display.

Dreams of embraces are miles apart.

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

Loving someone from a distance is difficult but can be done if two people really want it to work but eventually the distance has to depart

Anytime, this piece tells a story clearly and beautifully. Even if touched with a hint of sadness
Liked this, and I admire poets who have the discipline to work in formal, traditional poetic forms.
Advise all to look at this
