I Stand Alone

The Villanelle has a very specific format. One which lends itself to a darker poem, one that is almost Gothic. While the below piece is not within the standards of such a piece, it is a good start. It will be revised in the future as I practice and learn more about this format.

Resolute,
Unflinching,
Unmoving
I stand alone

I await the charges to be read
These charges are mine alone
Resolute,
Unflinching,
Unmoving
I stand alone

As I stand and wait my soul is dead
To stand and wait as the ghosts of those
who bled
Devour my heart,
My mind,
My soul

Until such time the bells for me toll
I stand
Resolute,
Unflinching,
Unmoving

I stand alone
'Til my body rejoins
My heart,
My mind,
My soul
