Forbidden Love


Before the clock was set to count our smile
Together we traveled. We traveled for a mile.

Before the clock was set to count our tear
We traveled for a mile before no one could hear.

Before one could even stare, we could only see
through each other's eyes beneath the lonely tree.

Face to face we sat, eye to eye would state
hand to hand would walk, soul to soul would mate.

Back to back we sat, far afar would stare
ear to ear would sing, song to song would fare

What we would not say, we could only hear
We could only feel, what we would not fear.

Before the clock was set to count our bygone day
We would travel in morrow, we would together play.

Before the clock was set to count our unheard prayer
We would together pray, we would together share.

    I can never decide whether its more of a pleasure or privilege to have the opportunity to read your exemplary work! Forbidden Love is one of my favorite poems written by you, for its a poem from a heart for a heart. The rhythmic flow of these beautiful lines somehow manages to encompass your thoughts into a naturally surreal realm, pausing the flow of time, perhaps even seeking it backwards. The poem never seems to end and your unique writing style just makes it seem to repeat itself with more beauty, more music, more love each time its read. Please continue amazing us with your works.

    A truly impressed friend and inspired poet

    This is a poem with real depth and it is written with a sincere, desperate, piercing love that shines through the rhyme. Terrific poetry. (Report) Reply

    Hello Palas,

    I don't get the sense, from the poem, that this love shared is forbidden...it seems warm and beautiful...but I'll read it again. 10 just the same!

    PALAS, TWO HEARTS TRULY BLENDING, TRULY SHARING AND IN TUNE SHOULD NOT BE FORBIDDEN. BEAUTIFUL WORK. LOVE IS THE MUSIC OF AND IN THE UNIVERSE. IT IS REAL BUT DUE TO SO MANY NEGATIVE FACTORS, IT REMAINS A MYSTERY, SADLY, TO SO MANY. SHALL READ MORE. THANK YOU. CAROL (Report) Reply
