Love is but an illusion
a mixture of lies and truth.
And non-responsive to dreams
or expectations of youth.

Through anguish and frustration
bravado falters and slips.
And yet in your fantasies
passion drips from wanton lips.

Hope courts imagination
summoning a dreamy smile.
And you find your private place 
where you go once in a while. 

You yearn for a soul mate with
whom to share your existence.
And you continue to look 
with undying persistence.

You fall in and out of love   
with the ghosts of yesterday.
And yet feigning happiness
pretend everything's okay.

I love your last stanza, Emile: "You fall in and out of love with the ghosts of yesterday. And yet feigning happiness pretend everything's okay."

This poem expresses so well the heartbreak of young love Emile. It takes up over 80 percent of their thoughts, in fact getting them to focus on other things becomes difficult when they are courting an admired quest. I so enjoyed this poem this morning. I have been through this experience with all four of my kids many times.
