The Force Newton Couldn't See (A Villanelle)

All unsaid words weigh upon hopeless souls
While the restless lie, grievously awake.
The force leaves our hearts as nothing but holes.

When you are alone, you just play the role
Of savior. The truth puts too much at stake.
All unsaid words weigh upon hopeless souls.

Falling in love was not one of my goals,
But dwelling in hate was too much to take.
The force leaves our hearts as nothing but holes.

I slowly shatter, while my heartbeat lulls
Me to slumber just as night to dawn breaks.
All unsaid words weigh upon hopeless souls.

You say you live free: the pain is the toll
Of liberation. Bliss you cannot fake.
The force leaves our hearts as nothing but holes.

Walked so far in life, you’ve worn down your soles.
Barrel to skull—your one final mistake.
All unsaid words weigh upon hopeless souls.
The force leaves our hearts as nothing but holes.
