In the last stanza the persona gives a tone of attachment and helplessness in trying to forget the happenings of the past. He shows his desire to change what had happened and get rid of the reminders of the happenings. At the end too there is a tone of resignation whereby the persona doesn't wish to go back to the same experience. To give a credible ending and conclude without loosing the set pace, the poet effectively applies repetition in the use of the word "shrinking". This is also coupled with rhyme and the same word is rhymed with sinking this is also seen in the words domain and again.
