Thoughts Poetic [A Villanelle]


I have thought so many times
Without letting out a sigh
Nevertheless, I was right some times

I would hear far-away chimes
Playing in my head; yet so nigh
I have thought so many times

However much I tried rhymes
Mama openly rebuked it as a lie
Nevertheless, I was right some times

From rooftops watching mimes
I kept giving poetry a try
I have thought so many times

Distancing myself from copy crimes
Cost me chances of sharing thieved pie
Nevertheless, I was right some times

Now my talent is in its primes
Like the flesh of broiler’s thigh
I have thought so many times
Nevertheless, I was right some times
