It is in the Silence the Poet Dies
(A Villanelle)


Her heart leaves a lyrical stain
Flowing with ink of the night
Bleeding a song wrought of pain

Love's vigil can not forever sustain
A soul thats shy from the light
Her heart leaves a lyrical stain

Needing to scream, but will refrain
A voice wounded by whispered plight
Bleeding a song wrought of pain

And in dreams on wings of the crane
She will find mercy in freedom of flight
Her heart leaves a lyrical stain

In secret wars the one who's left slain
Is she alone, lost to the fight
Bleeding a song wrought of pain

Without audience the poetry will wane
Slowly her vision shall fade from sight
Her heart leaves a lyrical stain
Bleeding a song wrought of pain.

And in dreams on wings of the crane
She will find mercy in freedom of flight
Her heart leaves a lyrical stain

cast your dreams onto the birds that fly over horizons we can only surmise where they must take them

very lovely the way this wove together

you have taken a difficult style (at least, in my opinion) and made it come alive with ease

muted, this is wonderful. I always admire poets who tackle difficult poetry forms and do them well. This villanelle is perfect in every way

Wow Dawn this is really very beautiful, I wish I could write a Villanelle, especially as magnificent as you do.
