My Heart It Never Lies

my heart    it never lies 
with the morning light 
I pause      and close my eyes 
 
Dawn is a lovely prize 
still I unpack each night 
my heart    it never lies 
 
she presses on my thighs 
soft and wrapped in white 
I pause      and close my eyes 
 
Dawn’s warmth is but disguise 
I feel her cruel bite 
my heart    it never lies 
 
she slowly makes her rise 
then showers golden bright 
I pause      and close my eyes 
 
staring in her mirror 
I reach for something sharp 
my heart    it never lies 
I pause      and close my eyes

    Nice villanelle,

    Almost, almost a very good villanelle...the second line of the last stanza could use a little tweak....perhaps something like "grief-stricken by the sight" or something different? Just a suggestion...I enjoyed reading your work and hope you will show us more. Thank you!
