Truthful Eyes

April 21, 2013 § 2 Comments

Don’t waste your time with these lies

I spot the truth in the corner of your lips,

The deceiver in this, your eyes.

 

Oh, think yourself so wise

I’ll pry the truth from your heart

Don’t waste time with these lies.

 

This moment, heed my advice,

Only one fool formed from your words

The deceiver in this, your eyes.

 

Fooled no one with your longing sighs,

The truth in your gaze

Don’t waste time with these lies.

 

Put away your foolish guise

Part your lips and speak the truth

The deceiver in this, your eyes.

 

I can see right through this disguise,

You fool no one but yourself

Don’t waste time with these lies

The deceiver in this, your eyes.

 

Poem #21, A villanelle. This is pretty bad, I wrote it rather quickly! I plan to come back and edit during the summer when I’ll have time!
