Wish – Villanelle Poetry

Our goodbyes deserve an absence of light
as the eyes never learn to forget,
leave me slowly if you wish tonight

as the quietest tide consumed by night
we shall meet again in the warms rains of regret.
Our goodbyes deserve an absence of light.

This sleep shall disappear in this Stardust, pure white.
as memories burn in broken mirrors with cigarettes.
Leave me slowly, if you wish tonight

as the colors do, in the hues of black and white.
We shall meet again in the rainbows and colorful silhouettes.
Our goodbyes deserve an absence of light.

The warmth shall dissolve in the impending frostbite
as we dream of beautiful icicles in cold sweat.
Leave me slowly, if you wish tonight

but as an image disappearing into the night
we shall meet again in the destined afterlives.
Our goodbyes tonight deserve an absence of light.
Leave me slowly, if you wish tonight
