February 6th – Misty morning melancholy

A Villanelle

(A1bA2 abA1 abA2 abA1 abA2 abA1A2)
11.16-11.26

 
Misty morning melancholy today,
it never seems to take me by surprise;
a creeping sense of nothingness at play.

I wonder if I can hold it at bay,
to shake the sense of dread from off my eyes;
misty morning melancholy today.

The sunrise opens up without a ray
of anything, it sinks and swiftly dies,
a creeping sense of nothingness at play.

Sometimes I feel it best to go away,
to seek a place away from empty cries;
misty morning melancholy today.

Other people who seem to find a way,
are people who can live without these lies;
a creeping sense of nothingness at play.

I shake the covers off, throw them away,
determined to resist the teasing cries;
misty morning melancholy today:
a creeping sense of nothingness at play.
