Burning Embers

Our love started out as a burning fire
Nothing mattered but being in your arms
With passions flames you lifted me higher

How could I possibly resist your charms
That special smile, the one I remember
Nothing mattered but being in your arms

The flame's subsided it's now an ember
Others may not see but we both know
That special smile, the one I remember

I cherish the warmth of the ember glow
Our love so much stronger than yesterday
Others may not see but we both know

For many others love has gone away
We are so careful we tend to loves flame
Our love so much stronger than yesterday

Sure we have fun, yet love is not a game
We are so careful we tend to loves flame
Our love started out as a burning fire
With passions flames you lifted me higher

    I like this poem a lot. I did have a question. I was actually leaving someone a comment and saw a comment you gave them saying this is a hard form, and was intrigued to investigate it, as I'm new to many forms. I saw that it uses the form of the Villanelle, so I felt like trying that, since I really like that form. I have seen two of yours and the quatrain rhymes aabb, but the definition here, says it should rhyme abab, I found that sometimes the definitons aren't complete and wondered.....

    Either way is acceptable. Sometimes I play with the last line if I want to covey a particular change. This is not correct but I excercise my poetic licence.

    If the definition may not be complete acurate. I found on discovery that the definiton of the Villanelle lacks a little in the explanation. I just had that question about the form, and was hoping that you might critique mine. I know that you're a good writer and want your opinion, mostly of if I did the form right. Thank you..Wayland
