Author's Notes: This new Villanelle is a mirror image theme-wise of its title: "My Broken Heart Shall Never Now Last Forever." As I have noted before in other similar venues, love is certainly a most powerful emotion. It defines us as living, thinking beings in God's own image, and it is at the base of who we are as human beings and is reflective of our ability and desire to love one another, and to show compassion for others. Using the distinctive and powerful nature of the Villanelle format, I had decided to approach the poetic notion of a person's broken heart from the perspective of that person eventually meeting his or her predestined "true love," with the resulting desired change this event evokes in mending that person's "broken heart." Enjoy the poem. (Gary Bateman - November 18, 2018) (Villanelle)

My Broken Heart Shall Never Now Last Forever
 
My broken heart shall never now last forever,
As your true love captured my heart and soul,
And darling our love is my heavenly treasure.

Our life and love are truly a wondrous pleasure,
As our souls form as one by God’s cosmic role.
My broken heart shall never now last forever.

Our true passion is beyond all infinite measure,
As our life and love form a bond that’s so bold,
And darling our love is my heavenly treasure.

Our shared desire is limitless forever and ever,
And our love’s heartfelt emotion is one to extol.
My broken heart shall never now last forever.

Our love and your beauty are my real pleasure,
Their worth exceeds all of Earth’s natural gold,
And darling our love is my heavenly treasure.

We share a life and love by God’s own endeavor,
And in His view as two loving spirits of one soul.
My broken heart shall never now last forever,
And darling our love is my heavenly treasure.

An excellent Villanelle which I can very well relate to, Gary. It is like a leaf from my life story - eventually finding my "true love". A true pleasure to read and a fav. T.J

Hello Dear Nette, Always a great pleasure to hear from you!! I really appreciate your comments here concerning my latest Villanelle. If you have the chance, recommend you also take a read of a new Shakespearean Sonnet under the title of "Love's Spirit Enchants Our Souls Entire," that I posted on Poetry Soup on 9 Nov. It covers some of the same notions of passion and love that I addressed here in this new Villanelle. Best Wishes Always!! Gary

- The beautiful thing about our hearts is that they can be both strong and vulnerable - Feel deep damage and heal at the same time - But fortunately: they can be broken and they can love at the same time - A wonderful poem, Gary :) - Best wishes and hugs // Anne-Lise :)

Hello Dear Anne-Lise, Many Thanks for your read of my latest Villanelle, and for your very gracious comments!! I agree totally with what you say. A heart can be damaged, broken, and injured by a love that's not real and true. At the same time, a broken heart can recover as well. Finding that special and right person does a lot to make this positive outcome happen. Continued Best Wishes from Ingrid and me!! Cheers and Best, Gary

Hello WW (My Great Poetry Colleague and Friend), I am very pleased, of course, to hear that it was a pleasure for you to read my latest Villanelle. I am very glad you enjoyed it!! (BTW, I just happened to have written and posted earlier on Poetry Soup on 9 Nov a new Shakespearean Sonnet under the title of "Love's Spirit Enchants Our Souls Entire." Do give it a read, if you have the time to do so. I always greatly value your comments WW!!) Cheers and Best Wishes, Gary
