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….
