NaPoWriMo 2019: Day 5: The Scream of the Butterfly at the End of the World

Why does the sun go on shining
Like heaven ablaze in our eyes
This is the end of nights when we tried dying

I want to be alone in the darkness with my crying
Where I can't hear the voices whispering their lies
Why does the sun go on shining?

I scream and hear nobody replying
Not even an echo from the tomb does arise
This is the end of nights when we tried dying

I try to fool myself but there is no denying
All things end and everything dies
Why does the sun go on shining?

I will remain till the end of my life alone and pining
For the one who no longer listens to my cries
This is the end of nights when we tried dying

I wish one last time I'd hear your voice replying
Before everything I was wastes away and dies
Why does the sun go on shining?
This is the end of nights when we tried dying

Note:
Today's criteria were: write a villanelle, use lines from outside sources, and have lines which oppose each other in some way. I think I succeeded. Just thank your lucky stars I wasn't feeling snarkier than I am at the moment. I could have used the line "fuck, fuck, fuck me, Baby" from the uncensored version of "The End."
