Venting several years ago. I made an angry rant in the form of a villanelle


A House is Nothing More Than Brick And Mortar

A house is nothing more than brick and mortar
Built upon dreams of expected sentiment
Deceptive will deludes and tortures

For a thief of heritage and culture
Who believes its possession is a new covenant
A house is nothing more than brick and mortar

Purloined legacies and cruel portraits
Penned by a cowards testament
Deceptive will deludes and tortures

Belief that possession makes her the successor
Makes its pursuit the ultimate consignment
A house is nothing more than brick and mortar

Guiltless assassination of innocent character
Desperate gasps for societal acceptance
Deceptive will deludes and tortures

This house is no ones home parlor
Its possession will be her sentence
A house is nothing more than brick and mortar
Deceptive will deludes and tortures

Really liked the way you wove strong emotions, stark imagery, and repetition together. Intense and rewarding.
