Puppy love

Why do we call it "puppy love"?
perhaps cause the participants young
Do the adults then love as animals
or is the euphemism simply wrong?

Perhaps its the innocence with which
that this young love is so declared
Over time it then depreciates
and the adults emotionally impaired

Don't we long for that love we lost
for once to succumb to feelings this pure
to be enveloped in that magical haze
But alas, such a fantasy cannot endure!

The End
