My Forbidden Love


My mind recalls the essence of your touch

Although I try to forget, I see you when I close my eyes

Your warmth and gentleness have engulfed my soul,

They illuminate even the darkest shadows of my being.

The forbidden love I have for you will not die

Neither time nor man can stop my heart from beating,

My lips from speaking your name.

Do not turn from me

For if I can be nothing more to you...

I desire to be just one breath that you take

To feel you completely, to be in your heart for one moment.

Perhaps someday you will treasure me

Hold me, never leave me.

Proving to me that my love is not in vain.
