Paper Hearts

Paper Hearts

Paper hearts
Alas desire waltzed.
And thoughts chortled.
Every yearning was
Youthful temptation
And hot love.

Words not found
Shaped a fated soul.
The feast: fleeting feelings,
Put reason away.

Love, laughs
Evening stars
Suburban streets
A tenor voice
Technicolor dreams
Scattered wings
And a parking lot
Tell the tale.

Words soon found
Shaped our loving souls.
The feast:  fun filled follies
And full lives.

Pure hearts
Alas, had danced
And thoughts giggled.
Every yearning was
Committed care.
And sizzling…
Affection.
