Daria BuchananHughes 5-16-16Villanelle GraduationI wait and I yearn for Ending. Sunsets, finish lines.One day I won’t wait anymore.I’ll repay my debts, my finesMy friends will take off their blindsTheir masks drop to the floorGrateful to be avoiding those minesMom and dad please do not cryThen I won’t hold mine in anymoreLet me go dry.Goodbyes may be solemnWhy not make ours sweetSo we do not have to cryGratefulness is my good byeI know I’m a bore
But I’m going to flyI won’t promise not to dieBut I’ll try my bestI guess we can now cry. -D.B.1) What is the strength of your poem? 2) What could still be improved?
