Vilanelle- Refrain

Posted by

Please refrain
from continuing to repeat yourself
I’ve heard enough.

I don’t need any more ridicule,
and I’m asking very nicely so,
please refrain.

I know what I’ve done,
and I can’t live with myself, its tearing me apart.
I’ve heard enough.

Yes, I killed him, so what?
It’s not like you cared what happened to me, so
please refrain.

Send me away, do it!
I know you’ll be happy, and believe me,
I’ve heard enough.

She left that day scared,
uncertain of the future, having only told her mother,
“please refrain,
I’ve heard enough.”
