His Villanelle

How long have I known you?

An appetite needing to be fed

Curiosity suggests I pursue.

 

Out of conversation something grew

Suspended from a delicate thread

How long have I known you?

 

Self-control consistently broken through

Coaxed into a desirous bed

Curiosity suggests I pursue.

 

Something exotic to tame, to subdue

Am I in over my head?

How long have I known you?

 

You see through all I do

Like a book you’ve read

Curiosity suggests I pursue.

 

This seems too good to be true

Few things remain unsaid

How long have I known you?

Curiosity suggests I pursue.

The End
