Jordana's Villanelle

I'm a 30-year old who suffers from Schizophrenia. Suffers, being the keyword. I am a tortured soul. I'm plagued with substance dependence and mental illness, which is also known as a dual diagnosis.Poetry was soothing when I was beginning to hit rock bottom. I felt as if I was at the end of my ropeā€¦






Your love is what I exist for.
A twist of fate that was heaven sent.
When I thought I had lost you my heart tore.

I'm forever grateful for what fate had in store.
You showed me what love meant.
Your love is what I exist for.

Through our best times and the poor,
I nearly died that day when you went.
When I thought I had lost you my heart tore.

I love you with all my being Jordana, my inner core.
With an unbreakable will than cannot be bent,
Your love is what I exist for.

For when it rains upon us it tends to pour,
As our life is never less than turbulent.
When I thought I had lost you my heart tore.

You nearly left me upstream without oar.
Thankfully the powers that be didn't see fit, my punishment.
Your love is what I exist for.
When I thought I had lost you my heart tore.
