and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Youth seldom question if love is true
desperate to ignite passion’s first flame.
For their need to belong outweighs their fears
a desire so strong it's hard to ignore.
Those blinded by the bright aura of love
shun all reason when darkness zeros in.
For the dazzling prospects of make-believe
conceal reality and nightmare screams.
Doubt dissects happiness attacking love
as confusion helps tear your world apart.
And your heart bares the scars of betrayal
inflicted by white lies stripped of luster.
The truth that love offers is troublesome
debatably more to shun than embrace.
Yet just under the surface of mistrust
hope resonates, within a wounded heart.
