A villanelle for Stretch Your Style
Still I look, but must ask, where has gone the sun?
I look to the stars and see naught but dark
The darkness now reigns and butterflies shun

My heart has been pierced by a vicious gun
all angles and edges in relief too stark
Still I look, but must ask, where has gone the sun?

No more are bright days filled with fun
no more happy days and walks in the park
The darkness now reigns and butterflies shun

I try to hide and find nowhere to run
not even a song to be sung by a lark
Still I look, but must ask, where has gone the sun?

Alone and unloved, weighted by a ton
a heart beating slower, but without a mark
The darkness now reigns and butterflies shun

Alas now I think this battle is won
by the relentless gnawing of many a shark
Still I look, but must ask, where has gone the sun?
The darkness now reigns and butterflies shun
