Simply 6 Minutes – Trompe-l’oeil

Inspired by and written for Simply 6 Minutes – thank you, Christine

Wow, I love art that plays the eye, and this pic did that beautifully. But a little love song, or sonnet -is that even possible? Here goes

Form: Alternating Sonnet 2
Theme: Love

Vision of beauty too good to be true
And I wonder did I really see you
Or were you another trick of the light
For the eyes cannot be trusted to see
What lies hidden behind a smiling face
When the bliss of love has fallen from grace
What remains for our love’s reality
The skin deep beauty now shallow and thin
It’s faded and worn revealing what’s true
This was a game you play and always win
But it is too late and too late for me
For my life is lost to this time and place
And you covered your tracks, left not a trace
As you moved to your next victim-to-be

Word Count: 116
Time: 25 minutes and 20 seconds
