Despair


It flails me with its might,
Dark voice from deep within.
My fate succumbs to blight.

No future promise bright.
And as I'm drenched in sin,
It flails me with its might.

I'm weak yet still I fight.
But ‘gainst my evil kin,
My fate succumbs to blight.

No peaceful end in sight,
Nor view of where I've been.
It flails me with its might,

And turns me from hope's light.
Now drowning ‘neath dank fen,
My fate succumbs to blight.

As symphonies of night,
Do beckon to heart's end,
It flails me with its might.
My fate succumbs to blight.

Perfectly executed, Christopher. A true villanelle.

An excellent piece of writting, not an easy form to pull off, but you've done a great job of mastering it

Tch tch - perfection indeed! That nasty word - but I have to admit, it fits well here.
Have no fear - your reputation is still partially intact, methinks...'My fate succumbs to blight...' Hmmm....
