Villanelle – Pause

When did you last press pause?
Did you get the reprieve you required?
Did you overcome your flaws?

Escaping from enormous jaws
Of demons made of fire
When did you last press pause

Did you feel you had just cause
Or did you just feel you were tired?
Did you overcome your flaws?

No one to offer an applause
Or to tell you you’re admired
When did you last press pause?

Is your reason just because
From your work you have retired
When did you last press pause
To try and overcome your flaws?
