Delusion of Light

Once captivated by your light that shined bright
Smooth sailing seas,  but I now resemble a shark
Your presence in times of sorrow, once a delight

Again I move through the cold, this is my plight
A weary werewolf under dark moon, not a lark
Once captivated by your light that shined bright

Freezing wind blowing I move from left to right
The bitter bite foreshadowed by a familiar  bark
Your presence in times of sorrow, once a delight

Confusion sets in and now, insanity with insight
This thing threatens, but I’m obligated to hark
Once captivated by your light that shined bright

Weak in soul, but my mind feels a strange might
The pleasant placating voice has to now embark
Your presence in times of sorrow, once a delight

If it’s a phase, I promise it is not done from spite 
This clever close alliterated, a remaining remark
Once captivated by your light that shined bright
Your presence in times of sorrow, once a delight

    I love the villanelle form- it is my favorite! I have only attempted it once, this inspires me to give it another go! Very well done :)

    I didn't notice until further inspection that you had attempted the villanelle on your poem that is currently the oldest posted. Was that your first poem for the Soup?

    About your poem: I call this delusions of light** this may be your subconscious acting suspicious over the feeling you have or had. I love the deep mental state in which is hidden in the dark flaw shadows around sorrow. I love this level in which love creates the delusion of a captivated soul. One can still live in this the spiritual light in which appears to be only a sorrowful delusion now under control. always~ PD

    Ah another recommendation that I will accept, I now too call it delusions of light, lol. Thanks for your lovely comments.
