villanelle: shadows

May 4, 2010

can longing erode believers,
because the absence is prolonged?
the web of dust motes sweep corners;

do emotions drive souls to song?
while rain softly pitter patters,
your absence still remain prolonged.

why does each year past take longer
to retract moments left undone?
the web of dust motes sweep corners.

don’t keep on waiting, move along
echoes of crawling hands linger,
louder, as absence is prolonged.

don’t we all come home to cancer,
blurring faith, what’s right and what’s wrong
so web of dust motes sweep corners?

what have you done after so long?
and all that’s left is a whisper.
my absence drags on, prolonged
the web of dust motes seep corners.
