I don't really remember what brought this villanelle's subject matter on, but it's still one of the things I like most that came out of my creative writing class.

Time is fragile, fragorous, fleeting,
"Someday", a distant, hopeless lie,
And we, human, are self-defeating.

A decade, a year, a lonesome meeting,
Days and days and days passed by.
Time is fragile, fragorous, fleeting.

Learn, work, college, job: beating after beating
Until hopes and dreams and plans all die
And we, human, are self-defeating.

Eternity is ever repeating,
But shattered by a cry:
Time is fragile, fragorous, fleeting.

A grin, a laugh, a heartfelt greeting,
But "it'd never work!" with a sigh,
And we, human, are self-defeating.

Around around clutching tearing - competing
For money, fame, love. For nothing, say I:
Time is fragile, fragorous, fleeting
And we, human, are self-defeating.

Sounds like a fairly accurate representation of stuff currently happening to you and general issues. Just wrapped in pretty pretty words. <3 Me likey! Good luck with your creative writing!

Never heard of a vilanelle before, what's the rules for those?
