Sweetly lies Nostalgia

 

Oh, how she lies

Sweetly she lies

A siren song of bygones

Calling

Beckoning

 Promises of long-lost lovely things

Truth’s tarnished bits

Buffed bright

Oh, how she lies

Sweetly she lies

Languid vision draped in shimmer

charmed

transfixed

 pictures of once was

luring you,

sternforemost

oh, how she lies

sweetly she lies

offerings of sweet honey treats

alfalfa

clover

fragrant, sensual reminders

palate pleasing

flavours of youth

oh, how she lies

how sweetly she lies

without yield you may love her

from afar

for now

venture near to discover pose

in focus disjointed;

memory piecemeal and raucous strain

Oh, how sweetly nostalgia lies

 she lies
