When You Were Mine: Villanelle

Do you remember our kisses so sweet?
Like delicious honey-nectar so fine 
When you were mine, I felt so complete


My soul did spins, I was dizzy on my feet
Oh baby, I would get chills down my spine
Do you remember our kisses so sweet?


With every pucker, I could feel your heat
The warmth of your lips , oh so sublime 
When you were mine, I felt so complete


My heart danced  a sweet loving  beat 
Oh yes, I was glad you were mine !
Do you remember our kisses so sweet?


Honey glazed lips such a joyous treat 
Warm embraces , oh they felt divine
When you were mine, I felt so complete


I shall always love you my sweet
Your kisses forever engraved in my mind
Do you remember our kisses so sweet?
When you were mine, I felt so complete

    Aha another villanelle... i'm thinking you're enjoying composing these - it shows in the end result here which is joyous and bounces along.

    A delight to read, thank you.

      Yes, I love the format.. Thanks for stopping by... Smiles

    • Rocky Lagou

      Ooof! The refrain "When you were mine, I felt so complete" really hits. I can almost sense that hole that must be lingering in the heart from the absence of the lover. But either way, a gracious villanelle and you once again executed it with finesse. 💖✨

        Thanks Rocky, I think we alk have been blasted by love.. Thanks for the compliment

            Dove, you really are a master of the Villanelle, so very well formed.
            And despite my misgivings re love poetry, these are on a totally different level. So smooth without an engineered adjustment in sight.

            I tried one very early on. Found it extremely difficult.

            Seems Villanelle was just waiting for you to come along.
            Multi thanks.

            • Dove

              Thanks Dave, it's good to get a love poem out once in awhile... Thanks for stopping by and giving my poem a try...
