Ten Villanelles- Third

                               3

Love on my tongue the words now at the tip
Second thoughts and doubts kept me quiet
Chance never waits, away time does slip

Memories and dreams make the heart skip
A dead dream dominates my day and night
Love on my tongue the words now at the tip

I start to enter in a final plea but bite my lip
Holding some gratitude, and also some spite
Chance never waits, and away time does slip

It has been a long quest and a very sad trip
Depression comes through erasing the light
Love on my tongue the words now at the tip

Something inside continues to tear and to rip
Telling me that this just can't possibly be right
Chance never waits, and away time does slip

Seeing no future, how can one begin to equip
Not knowing for what, or for whom, to now fight
Love on my tongue the words now at the tip
Chance never waits, and away time does slip

    I sense some dark despair in these words. "It has been a long quest and a very sad trip Depression comes through erasing the light Love on my tongue the words now at the tip" My favorite stanza...the following stanza too, is very powerful. Always, Laura
