Today was the day i threw it all away!
When I should approach the morning with bliss.
Breath, keep clam, mind at bay.

I was killed; my soul in the woods went astray.
My nobel knight I left without a kiss.
Today was the day I threw it all away.

My family fell apart, their sky now grey.
No husband to marry, I will forever be a Miss.
Breath, keep calm, mind at bay.

Nothing now to grasp in the coolness in May.
I can only watch my love now, my love Thomas.
Today was the day I threw it all away.

And now I must accept how forever I will stay.
No longer with my love, whom forever I'll miss.
breath, keep calm, mind at bay

So in this eternal dream i will lay.
Visiting my love with one last kiss.
Today was the day I threw it all away.
Breath, keep calm, mind at bay.

This poem was my first attempt at a Villanelle. A Villanelle is very tricky and complicated way to write poetry, but once you grasp the idea poems are now something even more beautiful.
