My First Vilanelle

I have loved and lust-
ed for so many; but never
will I ever trust.

My conviction is strong; it’s just
that smile, that forever
I have loved, and lust

are too tempting; her smile is so robust.
I wonder if I tell ‘er something clever
Will I have ‘er trust?

I must find her love I must
Show my heart; I must have ‘er;
I have loved. And lust

Won’t stop me now. It crossed
My mind that she won’t love me however
well I have her trust.

The ashes of her love today are dust.
The syrup of disgust is in my liver.
I have loved and lost;
Will I ever trust?
