I'm Reluctant

This is me attempting to write in a Villanelle form. I find it difficult to share my poetry, but let me know what you think!

 

Immortal Affliction



The sun is too bright, I must stay inside.

The longing crawls beneath my skin,

Your darkness is the perfect place to hide.



I watch your fearful eyes grow wide

I long to ***** you like a pin;

But the morning has come, I must stay inside.



I long to take you as my bride,

But the craving stems from deep within.

The illusion of love was my perfect place to hide.



Staying near me will be suicide,

Patiently waiting for you to give in.

The sun is too hot, let’s stay inside.



My hunger is consuming and will not subside

I am becoming way too thin,

Your nourishment would be the perfect place to hide.



I lost all compassion the moment I died

I am forced to live in eternal sin.

The sun is too bright, I must stay inside.

Your darkness was the perfect place to hide.
