Villanelle: Honey and the Moon by Joseph A.

By
You say we are doing this all too soon.
But you take me to places I have never been.
You are my honey and the moon.

It happened on that one cool day in June;
Not the cold, but sights of you sent chills through my skin.
You say we are doing this all too soon.

You wrapped me up in your arms; it felt like it was just us in Cancun.
It seems we quickly let each other in.
You are my honey and the moon.

The first time we spoke you didn’t notice me swoon.
I felt dizzy, like I had done twenty spins.
You say we are doing this all too soon.

Who knew what would start from that afternoon?
I was ready to be with you, ready to begin.
You are my honey and the moon.

It felt like we played to the same tune.
It seems with you I will always win.
You say we are doing this all too soon.
You are my honey and the moon.

I love it. It brings out a gorgeous feeling. This is a phenomenal piece! Keep it up! One question though...why does the title say by Joseph A.?
