An Affair of the Heart
Ever on my mind when we are apart, Absence fuels our desire, We are a living affair of the heart.   I fell in love with him right from the start, Beginning a love inspired, Ever on my mind when we are apart.   He acts as my nautical chart, Mapping our way through St. Elmo’s fire, We are a living affair of the heart.   Tender emotions become a work of art, A masterpiece sent through a telephone wire, Ever on my mind when we are apart.   In this drama, we each play our parts, A role in which I shall never tire, We are a living affair of the heart.   Meeting in ports of call only to depart, Sailing seas in shades of blue sapphire, Ever on my mind when we are apart, We are a living affair of the heart.     p
Author's Notes:
For a contest on allpoetry using the Villanelle form, but with a twist.  You have to give a meaning or definition for the last word of the first line in the second line of each verse.  For example:  Art/masterpiece in verse four.
