Hearts faded with time

Hearts faded with time.

Skinny jeans and smokey air
The sound of laughter and pool balls on a table
The smell of damp carpet and stale beer
Full ashtrays and sweaty skin
Those were the dives I lived in

Youngsters eager for adventure
Dark alleys and hallways
High heals and red lipstick
Firemen and cops
My first love

Ice cold beer in a tall glass
Uncomfortable wooden bar stools against an uneven stone floor
Names of high school sweethearts inscribed on the counter top
Hearts faded with time
       One of them was mine….

many people are sheep just following without stating their opinions... loved your piece, let's be ourselves to leave a mark after we're gone
