He was only 17

He crushed his heart. On hopes flutteringly light as butterfly wings. On dreams foolishly bright as silver bells. On dreams seemingly fine and looking good. He broke his heart. On tales of lust hewn from his faint heart. He banked his faith on the words of a woman. He lost his sight searching into darkness. He thought it wise to love once and never again. He thought he had found his only love. His only hope. He was only 17

    This poem telsl alot about adolescents on the grip of fantacies- perhaps about a first love with an older woman, only to find out that these are fleeting desires of lust and false love. Milton
