     This enduring smile of loves illusions
     Delicate in nature to harm or fate
     Sweet of taste, these pervasive delusions.

     Thriving in what seems boundless profusion
     From youths budding blossoms that will not wait
     This enduring smile of loves illusions

     My heart lays prey to welcomed intrusions
     Petals that fall cannot possible sate
     Sweet of taste, these pervasive delusions.

     Bearing no fruit in darkened seclusion
     Hope's brightness and cheer must never abate
     This enduring smile of loves illusions.

     Bright its color that bares no confusion
     That with Gods greatness could only create
     Sweet of taste, these pervasive delusions.

     True in hope, pray my only conclusion
     Be boundless love that my heart celebrates
     This enduring smile of loves illusions
     Sweet of taste, these pervasive delusions.

I've only read a couple of these, but yours is my favorite so far. Great creativity with where you went with this, and I just adore your repeat lines ... "Sweet of taste, these pervasive delusions" ... you spoke the truth in a most eloquent fashion, Charlie. Well penned, villanelle.
