Unwillingly clenched in the jaws of desire’s beast (Form: Villanelle)
Crushed Petals

Love's petals crushed, their sad perfume released.
Your heart no longer may choose its own way.
Swayed by a breeze, innocence now deceased.

Like a dark puzzle, the visions are pieced
into an image of that fateful day.
Love's petals crushed, their sad perfume released.

Blinded by sunlight, a gift from the east,
the welcoming warmth now leads you astray.
Swayed by a breeze, innocence now deceased.

Behind the sunshine, the darkness unleashed,
cruel lecherousness put on display.
Love's petals crushed, their sad perfume released.

The tender blossom waiting passion's feast
unwillingly yields its fragrance away.
Swayed by a breeze, innocence now deceased.

Clenched in lustful jaws of desire's beast,
a blameless victim caught up in the fray.
Love's petals crushed, their sad perfume released.
Swayed by a breeze, innocence now deceased.
