This villanelle is about manic-depressive hyper-sexuality, which is a symptom of full-blown, bipolar mania that is little acknowledged by this society and is thus not openly discussed or recognized by the American public.

''Composed in Non-Manic Mood on the Eve of 8 May 2018'' (engorged and enhanced version)

Lustful desires come when going manic:
it's an uncontrolled ejaculation!
(from this mania which feels fantastic)

Pelvis and loins afire and orgasmic,
and engorged with such climaxed sensation;
lustful desires come when going manic.

Eros peaks, then runs wild and Jurassic;
and hunts for racy gratification
(like this mania which feels fantastic!).

To burn with unrestrained lust is horrific;
but the intense flames of this condition
make coitus happen when going manic:

like being with a slut and sex addict,
or copulating with sweet abandon
(when this mania feels so fantastic!).

So, call it mad, or call it poetic;
but this disease becomes a damnation.
(Lustful desires come when going manic,
because this mania is so fantastic!?).

I cherish the effort. I am in awe of poets who can write villanelles with such ease. Bravo!

An excellent first effort! And a very strong ending.
