My second ever attempt at this style


20 stories(Villanelle challenge)


Buildings of twenty stories on me have fallen
Cries for help none can hear me calling
Blood rivers of running red
someone save me, before I'm dead!

Buildings, twenty stories! on me, have fallen
A betrayed heart shattered
in pieces torn and tattered.

Cries for help! None can hear me calling
I'm alone in the dust and rubble
won't someone dig me out of this trouble?

In this dust and rubble I stand alone
broken heart, lost without a home
cries for help, none can hear me calling
I'm left crushed and eyes bawling.

To abandon me like you did, why?
did not even say goodbye
all my heart can do is die.

Buildings twenty stories! ON me
have fallen,
CRIES for help! None can hear me calling.
