Dreamy Night: A Villanelle

in poetry •  6 months ago



"Dreamy Night"

Saw a world of black and white
Yet didn't see a single hue of grey
He woke up from a dreamy night

Trying to go after the light
In darkness he dare not stay
Saw a world of black and white

He ran towards the light in sight
Only to hear someone say "hey!"
He woke up from a dreamy night

Opens his eyes but was too bright
He got hit by a blinding ray
Saw a world of black and white

He felt that something wasn't right
Pinched his arm to see if he's okay
He woke up from a dreamy night

Somehow he is breathing really tight
He cannot shake the feeling that they
Are pulling him inside a world of black and white
And not wake up from this dreamy night



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.

The ABAB pattern you adhered to throughout made the work beautiful... My view from this poem is that of a child seeing a simple world("black and white with no grey") with simple thoughts being bombarded by the ever changing world.. This poem is that of a child struggling to hold on to innocence in a pool of change
