Buy my time: A Villanelle by Toni L.A. Cross

Buy my time with words of love
Woo me with untold rewards
Coo to me, O possessive dove

Peel off my resistance like an over warm glove
Pull me near with seductive cords
Buy my time with words of love

Free me with a verbal shove
Rescue me from doubt’s hateful hordes
Coo to me, O possessive dove
Dread wary reserve I long to be free of
This questioning cynicism of my mind’s lords
Buy my time with words of love
Show me all your whispers are suggestive of

Let me slip away to your rewards
Coo to me, O possessive dove
From the depth, from the height, so high above

From that secret place where bliss accords
Coo to me, O possessive dove

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
