To Not

To not see your face rightfully hurts
From not hearing your voice the inside aches
To not see your face rightfully hurts

All the strength is what it daily takes
The distance away is far, far, too far
From not hearing your voice the inside aches

To be under a different sky and star
Leaves the heart bitter, cold and alone
The distance away is far, far, too far

To your promise you must uphold
Forsaken is what the heart feels
Leaves the mind bitter, cold and alone

With absence the internal pain reveals
He questions whether he should trust
Forsaken is what the heart feels

The loss of you has made him grieve
To not see your face rightfully hurts
What would you have him believe
To not see your face rightfully hurts

The Terzanelle is a poetry type which is a combination of the villanelle and the terza rima forms. It is a 19-line poem consisting of five interlocking triplets/tercets plus a concluding quatrain in which the first and third lines of the first triplet appear as refrains. The middle line of each triplet is repeated, reappearing as the last line of the succeeding triplet with the exception of the center line of the next-to-the-last stanza which appears in the quatrain. Each line of the poem should be the same metrical length.  The rhyme and refrain scheme for the triplets is as follows:
Stanza 1:   ABA
Stanza 2:  bCB
Stanza 3:  cDC
Stanza 4:  dED
Stanza 5:  eFE
Stanza 6:  fAFA
