Villanelle 3

You’re the light, you’re the light I am, I am, a little wicked You’re the night, you’re the night   Take me past our satellites Just like you said, just like you said You’re the light, you’re the light   Black out the world, I will not fight Hands red, hands red You’re the night, you’re the night   On the edge of the highest heights The fire, the fire, you have fed You’re the light, you’re the light   You make things hazy, you make things right It goes to my head, it goes to my head You’re the night, you’re the night   Together we can burn bright Just like you said, just like you said You’re the light, you’re the light You’re the night, you’re the night   ********** Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was a tall order: write a villanelle using words from an existing piece of work, incorporating two opposing phrases.

Villanelle

I like to sneak and peek at night It’s my little secret game I like to cause all sorts of frights   A stroll by your house is my favorite delight To catch a glimpse of you is always my aim I like to sneak and peek at night   The light from your hallway is always bright When my breath fogs up your windowpane I like to cause all sorts of frights   I have to admit I feel a little spite Seeing another woman slink through your doorframe I like to sneak and peek at night   I’m sure your unlocked door isn’t oversight Since she’s an intruder you need me to maim I like to cause all sorts of frights   I can’t feel guilt ridding you of this parasite It’s my possessive nature that’s to blame I like to sneak and peek at night I like to cause all sorts of frights ***************** A villanelle is a nineteen-line poetic form consisting of five tercets followed by a quatrain. There are two refrains and …
