Agony And Pain: A Villanelle

in esteem •  13 days ago




"Agony And Pain"

Suffering an agonizing pain
Yet no relief in sight, so he prayed
Hoping that the pain would wane

Haunted by a past stain
And he is the runaway prey
Suffering an agonizing pain

But what did he ever gain
From all the running away?
Hoping that the pain would wane?

What is that piece of grain
That lead his heart astray?
Suffering an agonizing pain

A mind running like a train
On the hot month of May
Hoping that the pain would wane

What is that? Droplets of rain?
No. Those are tears refusing to go away
For he is suffering an agonizing pain
Is there a hope that the pain would wane?



What is a Villanelle?

A villanelle (also known as villanesque) is a nineteen-line poetic form consisting of five tercets followed by a quatrain. There are two refrains and two repeating rhymes, with the first and third line of the first tercet repeated alternately until the last stanza, which includes both repeated lines. The villanelle is an example of a fixed verse form. The word derives from Latin, then Italian, and is related to the initial subject of the form being the pastoral.
