For Love of You

Poem: For Love of You

***

For love of you, I embrace my tears

Unwilling dead to give life its start

In a world gone dark by senseless fears

.

Waters turbulent, emotion sheers

Flight! Away my biased dreams do dart

For love of you, I embrace my tears

.

Disquiet trembles toward unknown years

On broken spirit, your will impart

In a world gone dark by senseless fears

.

Foolish shroud obscures God-given cheers

Now blessed with your mighty soulful art

For love of you, I embrace my tears

.

Strong one, innocent, slighted by peers

My life, now yours, a new path does chart

In a world gone dark by senseless fears

.

Your way, now mine, precious future clears

Imperfect perfection fills my heart

For love of you, I embrace my tears

In a world gone dark by senseless fears

***

This is my first attempt writing a villanelle. Thank you for taking a moment to stop by and read. I hope your 2019 is off to a fantastic start. It’s a busy life, but I hope you find some time for self-care, creation, and love every single day. Have a wonderful tonight and tomorrow! -Ivy
