Carnival Dreamer

There are moments so bright they do not fade
I felt the excitement growing inside
In my hand the ticket for which she paid

The colors around her like an arcade
Sometimes it feels like this life is a ride
There are moments so bright they do not fade

Within the moment carried by the tide
Listening to carousel music being played
I felt the excitement growing inside

If there had been a way I would have stayed
I remember she was there by my side
There are moments so bright they do not fade

If I hadn't kissed her I would have died
When I found the courage I'm glad she stayed
I felt the excitement growing inside

There are moments so bright they do not fade
Within the moment memories are made
Life's possibilities are opened wide
I felt the excitement growing inside

    what an awesome poem. I love the rush of carnivals, what a thrill and your form, the lines amplified the appeal. Wonderful :)

    I love the structure of this rhyme—it has such a natural and inviting flow, and rhymed words often appeared in my mind before I read them, which, I believe, sums up the genius of this poem.

    Wow, thanks Mark.

    Hi Richard, this Is a moment worthy of holding In the silver cords of memory. How bright our dreams can be and how wondrous the words we can use to describe our thoughts. This has been written so well Richard that one can't say whether It Is real or unreal and that takes skill.This Is an excellent write and It takes the reader within from the very start. Form doesn't matter when the writing Is this good. Real or unreal? I don't know. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    hey, I thought I already read your first villanelle but I came here and now I am seeing this one that seems maybe new or revised?

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 1/6/2014 8:02:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    You did, this one doesn't follow the form so I have listed it under I don't know.

    Form should never dictate beauty of thought and expression....It is only a vehicle.....This is beautiful as is....

    Thanks it was to be a villanelle but it changed into something different.
