Text Message Confession of Your One-Sided Love – Rondelet

That one moment
Quivering lips, frostbitten heart
That one moment
Hands gripping a tiny altar
Sweaty brows, oceanic eyes
Moon-soaked words, soft dread, crimson cheeks
That one moment

The Rondelet is a French form consisting of a single septet with two rhymes and one refrain: AbAabbA. The capital letters are the refrains, or repeats (I have not followed the rhyme scheme).
