Steeped In Hurt

Shadows of yesterday
eclipse reality.
Yet in hope lies my dreams 
finally free of doubt.

Love’s elusive touch
manipulates pleasure.
And always wanting more
fledgling feelings take wing.

Desire turns into lust 
untethered to your heart.
And love’s consigned to dreams
whenever doubts win out.

When bonds of trust dissolve
love wasn’t meant to be. 
Yet melting into dreams
it stays just within reach.

It doesn't help to cry
though your heart's steeped in hurt.
For just like all the rest
this heartache too will pass.
