And Yet Why

Posted in villanelle by maggie on 2009/05/06

To complete the records, they need to know what got her through
and yet why
she whispers so quietly.  Nobody else will hear her.  Only you
understand why she says it so and whom she says it all to.
They imply
to complete the records they need to know.  What got her through
will have to remain her secret locked securely within your clue,
no goodbye.
She whispers so quietly nobody else will hear her.  Only you
have seen in her shit a breath of fresh air.  And you alone knew
how they'd lie
to complete the records they need.  To know what got her through
doesn't take it back, won't do what she can't undo. 
"Please.  Don't die,"
she whispers so quietly.  Nobody else will hear her, only you.

An effortless darkness voids her silence, bedding down who
lit her sky.
To complete the records they need to know what got her through.
She whispers so quietly nobody else will hear her, "Only you."
