Poem - Sterile Hearts

Updated: Feb 8, 2021

Does love only inhabit the allure of its honeymoon trance?

Can anyone work it out -

to know what union is without a doubt?

It seems like everyone is hurting

unfulfilled by reality.

Are pills the final answer -

replaced senses with doped emotions?

The waters are rising with

tears of dissolution.
