SELF ANNIHILATION - A VILLANELLE

When pain transmutes to trauma
And grief, unendurable, congeals
Death, self created, rears its head

Consciousness could provide reprieve
Yet finality,inveterately beckons
When pain transmutes to trauma

Life, evanescent, is rendered uncertain
As annihilation provides the only release
Death, self created, rears its head

In the gloaming of inexpressible sadness
Nothingness becomes immanent
When pain transmutes to trauma

Emptiness at the heart of things leaches
All remnants of restitution
Death, self created, rears its head

Anomalies of being crystallize intractably
Into irretrievable slivers of no return
When pain transmutes to trauma
Death, self created, rears its head.
