No Heart Trust - Poem by Chris Embrick

Did ever true love start with lust
when for pleasure love's denied
when a heart's broken who's to blame
when only one leaves satisfied

When one heart has the advantage
passion's enough to drive the heart
can love endure the heartache's pain
when lives entwine, yet live apart

With fickle hearts for love we rush
not knowing how the game will end
for hope of love, we play life games
expecting the other's heart to win

I ask, Which came first lust or love
If not love, then no heart trust.
