Time Does Not Bring Relief:
You All Have Lied
By: Edna St. Vincent Millay

Poem
Summary
I think she’s is trying to move on from a past relationship, but she can't.
She’s was told time would heal her break-up, but it hasn't.
She says that she’s trying to find a place where memories of “him” are not there.
Also time goes forward and never stops but she’s not able to move past this because the memories keep coming back.

Literary Devices
Time does not bring relief:
you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year's leave are smoke in every lane;
But last year's bitter loving must remain
Heaping on my heart, and my old thought abide
There are a hundred places where I fear
To go,- so with his memory they brim.
And entering with relief some quiet place
I say, "There is no memory of him here!"
And so stand stricken, so remembering him.
