Hold Tight: A Villanelle

in #esteem4 years ago



"Hold Tight"

Hold tight to what you hold dear,
and let it not leave your hands,
it might fall into the crevice of fear.

The wheel of destiny is one giant gear,
no one knows where it would land
so hold tight to what you hold dear.

There's a weight that we must all bear
but not everyone could take a stand—
careful not to fall into the crevice of fear.

The world will always be full of leers,
so care not for the rowdy band.
Hold tight to what you hold dear.

Sometimes even dreams can break and tear
---rolling away like time's sands.
Do not fall into the crevice of fear.

Darkness, can be found far and near,
still, the light will never be gone.
Hold tight to what you hold dear,
and fall not into the crevice of fear.



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.
