Lost Sight: A Villanelle

2년 전



"Lost Sight"

Lost in a world of black and white,
knowing what's left from right
but somehow he has lost sight...

Alone on countless lonely nights,
fighting the pain with all his might;
lost in a world of black and white.

Sorrowful heart bogged with fright,
seeking a bit of hope; of light.
Still, he has somehow lost sight.

Uncontrollable like a stringless kite.
Is he not afraid of being smite?
Lost in a world of black and white.

We're in a world that'll often bite,
often leaving us less alright.
He is someone who lost his sight.

He's a bird that knows not flight;
he's life have always been trite.
He's lost in a world of black and white;
someone who have lost his sight...



What is a Villanelle?

A villanelle (also known as villanesque) is a nineteen-line poetic form consisting of five tercets followed by a quatrain. There are two refrains and two repeating rhymes, with the first and third line of the first tercet repeated alternately until the last stanza, which includes both repeated lines. The villanelle is an example of a fixed verse form. The word derives from Latin, then Italian, and is related to the initial subject of the form being the pastoral.
