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.

Love these closing lines "Yet just under the surface of mistrust hope resonates, within a wounded heart."

It is just as you have said in this poem filled with the wisdom of experience. Young lovers are blinded by love and think it will always be perfect. Sad that it can't be. Something they can always count on most is change. There is sage advice in this wonderful write Emile! : )
