i believe that all love's ephemeral
feeding and bleeding
some may even say it's chemical.
in those three words the world is mistaken
they're sometimes used for selfish ends
perhaps one says it to make amends
they'll say their love will never be shaken.
forever's a concept taken as literal
here, blind faith is fatefully tested
hope, dispossessed and lamentably divested
to those that abide, acceptance is critical.
beware the one who bestows adulation
everyone changes, everyone grows
in light the truth inevitably shows
thus resulting in quiet desolation.
words proclaimed in passion's throes
only leads to futile anticipation.
