Poem - If We Were Villains

The poem “If We Were Villains” was inspired by the title of the novel, written by M. L. Rio, by the same name. Sometimes the world is left that much worse because of actions not intended to have the outcome experienced.


If We Were Villains

If we were villains
the world would topple
in tears embellished
with contrite sorrows

drowning the ruins
six fathoms under
while life disperses
above dim waters

the moon remembers
how the light lingered
before the sun left
spread of the heavens

now the staid headstones
markers of memory
stand in the darkness
aside calm marshes

perhaps gods forget
wrongs done in anger
when outcomes linger
past best intentions

the bones are scattered
in perfect hindsight
remind all of outcomes
if we were villains.
