I Wish You Well For the Best Rondeau Competition

I wish you well and hope all's fine,
but long to hear you are still mine;
I thought I'd found a love with you
and that, like me, you would be true:
my dreams were sadly asanine.

I floated blissful on cloud nine,
with happy shivers down my spine,
but now I feel alone and blue.
I wish you well.

I'd ask if we could wine and dine,
but know you'd, cold as ice, decline;
I prayed you'd say we were not through,
but yes, it's time to say adieu:
no point in waiting for a sign.
I wish you well.

Written 10th July for Laura Loo's Rondeau contest

    Thank you Jack for always reading and commenting. This entry should do really well in the contest. I haven't tried this one yet. The fourth and my birthday have kept me so busy that I haven't been on the Soup much. Have to go look at the contests. Good luck. Love, Joyce
