Tarnished

Oh my tarnished heart

Do you remember when you were shiny and new?

Before the reality of life set in

When nature was all you saw and you believed in kindness

Before tv and pollution contaminated everything good

When you were just perfect for being you

Before they told you what you needed to be

When you were innocent and full of wonder

Before the ugliness of humanity showed it’s face

When you believed in something

Tarnished heart, can you remember when you were shiny and new?

The scent of  Chanel #5 and the gift of a jewel

Sometimes dreams just don’t come true.
