Eyes that lie

You put me through the mangle,
Interrogated my mind with grilling smiles;
And when you walked away my heart wore a green willow!
I nearly invested all my heart in you;
I almost loved you beyond,
But you left me in this vale of tears!
You left me to swim against the tide of my own thoughts
But why did you come in the first place?
I tried to pull you at full tilt,
Eyes lied because you don't really exist!
You never existed!
