Moving On (Villanelle)

I know your pain just shakes you to the core
And you feel healing takes too much time
Remember, this has all happened before

Trust me; I know your wounds are still sore
And your heart feels like it is covered in grime
I know your pain just shakes you to the core

You feel like you just cannot love anymore
And your life no longer has any rhyme
Remember, this has all happened before

Believe me, I know moving on is a chore
And your relationship was still in its prime
I know your pain just shakes you to the core

I know happiness seems like a distant shore
And acceptance is a hard hill to climb
Remember, this has all happened before

But before you can go shut that door
And listen to the timer of grief start to chime
Know that I know your pain shakes you to the core
And rest assured: this has all happened before.

Not only has it all happened before -- it will all happen again, and again, and again.
Kudos for being on target.

Wow-- this is truly well-done. I love it. I can easily imagine it set to music, sung by Lauryn Hill.

Like honestly I love Lauryn Hill too. Your poetry is so relatable, and I think that is why it has so much power. You go sarquan
