Villanelle: Oscar Victorius

Villanelle: Oscar Victorius

Lock not the door in the face of your fate
   The intruder lies dimly in your place
Will he die for you were he your true mate

Soft the dark wind taps in every haste late
   Makes your darling come lie by your fire-place
Lock not the door in the face of your fate

Harsh words stifle your heart uttered so late
   Behind closed doors locked by fear on your face
Will he die for you were he your true mate

Will he run as fast as feet duplicate
   When you tug at the bed-sheets of his race
Lock not the door in the face of your fate

Whose screams you heard in your embattled state
   Before four blasts broke the silence of your grace
Will he die for you were he your true mate

Now your voice shrieks still behind the loud gate
   What mindless mistake takes you out of space
Lock not the door in the face of your fate
   Will he die for you were he your true mate.

    An explosive villanelle. Having attempted but one in my poetic life, I'm bowled over by your acumen. I particularly enjoyed this one because the subject is a fellow countryman. Innovative title, by the way. :)

    Great place to be from: explosive concoction - Springboks-Boers-Hottentots! Thanks ever so much for your kind words. As soon as I read the first comment, I composed a limerick in your honour, but thought otherwise about posting it. I'll send it to you for approval, if I had your e-mail. Every good wish. Wignesan
