Love Lies (attempting a villanelle)



Tomorrow will you lie to me
And dry my falling tears to dust
And set my shadows free.

Today you turned and cried to me
And dripped your promises to rust
Tomorrow lie to me.

Just yesterday you sighed to see
This image. You inspired my trust
And set those shadows free.

Yet any other night we’d flee
Where lies are gone and truth is just.
Why sorrow? Lie to me.

Tomorrow and tomorrow see
How lies have grown as ever must
The shadows yet unfree.

Tomorrow will you lie to me
While yesterday grows dry as dust
While sorrow ever lies and we
Like shadows are not free?
