Villanelle

And maybe someday this will be
(like others that were sweet before)
Another painful memory.

A thought that once contented me
Is now a great mnemonic chore,
And maybe someday this will be

Another glass epiphany
That shatters when it hits the floor,
Another painful memory.

Yet in denial, I can flee
The warning I cannot ignore,
“And maybe someday this will be”

Those cursed words can often be
The ever-growing basis for
Another painful memory

I stubbornly choose not to see
What lurks behind the dusty door:
“And maybe someday this will be
Another painful memory”
