A Villanelle of Loss

How long can I sit here? 
With my head in my hands 
Drenched in layers of my fear. 

Stop thinking, my thoughts all smear 
Like ocean water devouring the sands 
How long can I sit here? 

Urgent whispers within my ear 
Speaking sorrow of the sacred lands 
Drenched in layers of my fear. 

I'm strong for long, but wait! There's a tear 
The shattering of my dreamlands. 
How long can I just sit here? 

Those evil thoughts, they always sneer 
When there is only one left who stands 
Drenched in layers of my fear. 

Here they come, they draw near! 
With all of their cruel demands 
How long can I just sit here 
Drenched in layers of my fear?

    Sam, I like this very much. I love repetition and I use it often in my writing. Nicely done!
