Listen to my core, dear child,
the depths of dark are deep.
I am not as I seem to you
within your halls of dream.
(The dead and the gone, the here and the now, it all means nothing.)

Touch not my skin so cold,
my eyes stare ever onward.
The stillness within my spine
prevents my time from moving forward.
(The dead and the gone, the here and the now, it all means nothing.)

My shapeless death comes sweeping in,
the curtains dance in their wake.
Despite this knowledge in my hands,
nothing inside is left to make me quake.
(The dead and the gone, the here and the now, it all means nothing.)

Sweet rapture, sweet end,
take me from this bleak place
I want to find a solid bend
where my heart will find its pace.
So send me someone,
no matter who,
that will become my only one
no matter the things I do not do.
(The dead and the gone, the here and the now, it all means nothing.)

Love is dead, they're all the same.
Life won't last, no one takes the blame.
Will you be my only exception?
(The dead and the gone, the here and the now, it has to mean something.)
My first villainelle in a very long time. I hope you all don't mind.

Thank you, I really appreciate your kind words. Honestly, I had forgotten about the poetry that I've had on this account. Thank you for reminding me of it.

What's a "villainelle"? (I feel dumb for asking, it's just....I really don't know! :()

Also, you've found my critiquing weakness! I....just...can't...review poetry. I don't know why, but for some reason I always miss cadence, flow, and more than half of the time, imagery. :( In every class I've ever had, I've SUCKED at reviewing poetry.


This seems really cool, but I'm afraid I can't be more constructive than that! :(

Well, it's a specific type of poem that begins with four rhyming lines followed by one in parenthesis that usually stays the same through out the rest of the poem. I can't quite explain it too well ^^;

Really ;o?
I had no idea. Oh wow, that's no fun D: You poor thing.

Oh, it's alright. I just write this for the heck of it, so it's nothing to worry about~ Thank you, though, I'm glad you think it's cool ^////^
