Acquiescing to love’s defeat
you subdue sad feelings within.
For when passion’s all but over
anxieties slowly begin.

Dominating reality
bitter tears flow with brutal force.
For gone are all the promises
that kept forever dreams on course.

The hurt of betrayal hits you
with the force of a speeding train.
And you’re left in a kind of trance
oblivious to all but pain.

Shored-up by half truths and deceit
your happiness begins to ebb.
And your vulnerable heart’s now
a captive in depression’s web.

Your soul's susceptible to lies
when hope camouflages the truth.
And salvaging remnants of trust
you discard innocence of youth.

Ouch - "And salvaging remnants of trust you discard innocence of youth." That has to be the most disappointing milestone of growing up! Well done, Emile.

Hello Emile!! An exceptional well-done write here. Betrayal and half-truths among other disappointments can certainly negatively affect the innocence of youth. What a great theme with a quite poignant message. (7/FAV!!) Best Always, Gary
