How So? A Villanelle

Once upon a time’s a lifetime ago.

I remember holding your hand in mine

I was told we were the same but how so?

 

And so we come to the end of the show.

Although I suppose it’s alright to pine

Once upon a time’s a lifetime ago.

 

The world is darker now without your glow

Your house seems like a dream in the moonshine.

I was told we were the same but how so?

 

When we’re at the house I hear your echo

I feel my mother begin to untwine

Once upon a time’s a lifetime ago.

 

Clichés seem like the only way to go

As I feel your face slipping from my mind

I was told we were the same but how so?

 

I remember you as my mother’s hero.

I was your treasure then, now undermined.

Once upon a time’s a lifetime ago.

I was told we were the same but how so?
