Fickle Is The Heart



Impulsive and quixotic. Alluring and hypnotic.
Indulgent and erotic. Fickle is the heart.

Colorful and chromatic. Passionate and fanatic.
Vivacious and ecstatic. Fickle is the heart.

Obsessive and neurotic. Insistent and despotic.
Dithery and chaotic. Fickle is the heart.

Vigorous and dynamic. Volatile and volcanic.
Colossal and titanic. Fickle is the heart.

Deviant and dichotic. Tedious and robotic.
Peculiar and exotic. Fickle is the heart.

Capricious and erratic. Unstable and nomadic.
Affected and dramatic. Fickle is the heart.
