Ten Villanelles- First

The following are Ten Villanelles written over a couple of nights. I was numbering them because I knew I wouldn't be able to post all at the same time. The Villanelle is repetitive and maybe that's the reason I like it so much, or maybe the reason I use it so much. The thougts playing in my head over and over, really like a song. I know that as you read some things are repetitive, maybe almost exactly stated in another Villanelle. I do not usually read my work after it is posted, other than occasionally checking on things formerly written. I decided not to title them at this point, other than numbers, because other than one or two of them could all have the same name. If you've read many of my villanelles, there won't be a lot of fascinating new ideas here, like a said just mostly thoughts repeating. I just don't want anyone getting bored by the third one and wondering why they are still reading. Thanks for reading and always any feedback is welcome, criticism, anything at all.

There's no last chance to say goodbye
A chapter finally ends with much regret
Too many times I've asked myself why

Constantly I wanted to return, I did try
To rekindle that moment when we met
There's no last chance to say goodbye

Surely we both question this great lie
The course of finality now laid and set
Too many times I've asked myself why

A never ending plea my soul does cry
To my bad choices I still pay the debt
There's no last chance to say goodbye

Looking now forward into the night's sky
No will now, what can I hope or expect
Too many times I've asked myself why

One certainty I am never able to deny
The very thing, you now seem to forget
There's no last chance to say goodbye
Too many times I've asked myself why

    Enjoyed this villanelle - will have to check out the others on here. I cannot offer you any criticism, only that I admire your work very much. A lot of these words speak to me, and I can relate to a lot of your other verses. You express yourself with dark, haunting grace and this type of poetry- the kind that repeats, attracts me. Lovely one. I'll have to check out the others. Always, Laura

    Another reason I like revisiting I see the mistakes I've made. Just one simple error I noticed right away. I post a lot on phone, and said I would stop, but sometimes I'm there writing on phone. I make little mistakes that I overlook, or just can't see. Thanks for the kind words.

    Muito bon. Ha muitas perguntas! Que pena! Moto agitato! Sometimes we need to ask the questions... even if we get no answers.
