Truth and Love

We were all young once

All in love–

with the idea of love

A creation of the mind

Based on stories we grew up hearing

“he’ll come riding a white horse.”

“she’ll be the damsel you need to save.”

Adolescent, we search

For the image engraved.

And sometimes there’s a happy ending

And other cases….

Disappointment and heartbreak

We realize fairy tales are just rare dreams

And just like that, love is no longer deep infatuation

But rather something we know to seek the ends of the earth for.
