Hour 18: Dead in Her Head

(a villanelle)

The witch was dead
but the others told her
it was all in her head

Yet the headlines read
as the corpse grew colder
the witch was dead

She knew she had bled
the wounded soldier
it was all in her head

Still she said
despite what they sold her
the witch was dead

Though she carried the dread
it was just as they told her
it was all in her head

She never did wed
and she never grew older
the witch was dead

it was all in her head
