Valentine's: The Day After

I dedicate this tale of love to a friend forever seeking the higher road…
 She dreamed in color, she dreamed in red, she thought she had the better man. Tortured soul, tormented mind. Grounded by reason, torn by love…What wicked games were played, foolish desires gave way. The questions burned, the doubts incessant, the dreams oppressive, the tastes too real. Denial fought till the bitter end, “No, I don’t want to fall in love. This world is only going to break my heart.” What a wicked thing to say, never felt this way. What a wicked thing to do, let me dream of you (Chris Isaak). Too late, too much. Too soon forgotten. The path laid, the soul freed. The risks far too great…
The end left much debate, but I had faith in you. No looking back on this forward track. Best of luck. No fading whims. Pure hearts beat strong. Love life, live long. Nobody loves no one.  
Gravity settled. The attraction opposite, but equal. She requested affordable Pinot for the minutes shared between the two. Here's my thoughts, now try and experience more. Challenge his palate, turn him to France: 2009 Beaujolais, 2009 Cotes du Rhone, if he likes Pinots, these will swill better for much less $ :)
