A Daughter's Villanelle

byAngeline©

How did she survive the empty chair
the noons that inch to eventide
the atoms' screams in quiet air

a roommate's sighs the aides who stare
but none who knew her at her side
how did she survive the empty chair

while wondering at who might care
the flat smile of a photo bride
the atoms' screams in quiet air

the cards balloons the proxy fare
of not enough and will collide
how did she survive the empty chair

callous time will even wear
a stone away thus we've eroded cried
the atoms' screams in quiet air

in rooms where no one hears your prayer
yet pull you slowly with the tide
how did she survive the empty chair
the atoms' screams in quiet air
