Cynical Hearts

You realize your wild side lies somewhere within the past. And that forever dreams fade, although you wish they would last. Your most precious memories are but shadows, nonetheless. And when replayed countless times, tend to merge and digress. Images of both who you are and how you feel are explored. But, your doubts and misgivings all get discreetly ignored. Cynical hearts dissect love, despite its fragility. And attempt to mold it to fit rules of fidelity. Time allows two lonely hearts to enter a bond of trust. And hope encourages closeness, free from the shackles of lust. (Quatrain) 10/27/2016
