A Villanelle too: “Marriage”

~{}~

 

So quiet are you now,

and words have all been said.

We should have gone to bed,

but we don’t know just how.

 

Much talk there was, when we just met –

So quiet are you now,

as if we had Β a row.

 

The books have all been read;

We should have gone to bed

(remembering my vow ).

Not cold, but silence do I dread

 

“So, quiet are you now?”

“My mind is numb, so that is how.”

“Was it something then I said?”

We should have gone to bed…

 

You smile and kiss me on the head:

“So well I know you,Β  long as we’ve been wed!

So quiet are you now.

We should have gone to bed!”
