Romantic Spirits Intoxicating Our Senses by David Ellis

The electric thrills of your kisses collide with such divine force
Yet gentle grace, my perceptions of this world will never be the same again
All-consuming are these moments, ravished by passionate thoughts

Romantic spirits, intoxicating to our senses from the core to the source
Sweeter than shared strawberries, dipped in the finest champagne
The electric thrills of your kisses collide with such divine force

You are the quiet reflections found in books, the most enticing of all plots
Your language is all your own, an elegant quill inking ideas in golden rain
All-consuming are these moments, ravished by passionate thoughts

Strength of character and courage under fire leads to a desire overdose
Gorgeous, grounded and gifted, you sparkle in ways invoking euphoric élan
The electric thrills of your kisses collide with such divine force

Indulgence of inspiring minds once separated, now focused and on course
Genuine warmth, vibrant excitement, mere words never come close enough to explain
All-consuming are these moments, ravished by passionate thoughts

There is no caution to the wind or choice of remorse
Your tenderness is ruthless, with you, life is anything but mundane
The electric thrills of your kisses collide with such divine force
All-consuming are these moments, ravished by passionate thoughts

The composition of a villanelle consists of five tercets (stanzas of three lines) followed by a final quatrain (which is four lines long).

(Also these terms sound far too much like gym routines for comfort and have already got me sweating…
