Lying Eyes

Lying Eyes

As this day begins with moody grey skies
Dark thoughts of you filling me with such dread
Remembering your words and lying eyes
As you lay sleeping in this wretched bed
How you have torn this life of ours to shreds
What lies will you speak to me on this day
For I already know you did betray

Frank Hubeny is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
He has prompted us with a seven-line poem and
says that if we like we can write a Chaucerian stanza,
a seven-line poem in iambic pentameter with a rhyme
scheme of ABABBCC.  Or just write any
seven-line poem.  I'm up for the challenger so I chose
a Chaucerian stanza. My first one!

    The worst part I think is when you simply expect no truth. Nice mood-setting, Christine.
