Ten Villanelles- Ninth

9

How can tomorrow come if yesterday never dies
The only future I vision, is always tied to the past
All this happened for a reason is one of many lies

That may sound crazy, but I know what it implies
There's no reason in this, opportunities were vast
How can tomorrow come if yesterday never dies

In the pain, suffering and loneliness, I became wise
Understanding there's a love that will always last
All this happened for a reason is one of many lies

So many chances to right the wrong, many tries
But the pain and the distance we couldn't outlast
How can tomorrow come if yesterday never dies

I can hardly even recognize you in your disguise
The show continues, but I'm no longer in the cast
All this happened for a reason is one of many lies

We continue on ignoring our very own soul’s cries
What the future holds for us now I've often asked
How can tomorrow come if yesterday never dies
All this happened for a reason is one of many lies

    It seems through your poetry you might have lost someone very dearly to you. Maybe its not the case at all-- Hope you find solace in your writing nevertheless. "How can tomorrow come if yesterday never dies" ~Golden Always, Laura
