Forbidden Love

by taking off the mask (writer), Los Angeles, December 28, 2009

the unending desire for the forbidden fruit

It took a year and a half for him to tell me

He claims he always liked me

I always liked him too

my boy friend at the time

feared he'd steal me away

he called him names

not realizing the inner pain it caused me

I had hidden feelings for him

how dare he insult him

all I wanted was to be with him

to hold him, hug him, kiss him

and never let go

he was strong and beautiful

he made me feel safe and desired

but our desires were forbidden

for he had a girlfriend

and I too was in a relationship

but our hormones never calmed down

they always found each other

always wanted our bodies to combine

but faith wouldn't have it

or maybe it was my morals

but today it all changed

because our hidden dreams we did say

we want to be together

have the relationship that was forbidden

but than we remembered the other reason

and religion came up in the discussion

neither of us were willing to budge

we both loved our gods way to much

he is a Christian

I am a Jew

so there isn't much we can do

we won't bend

so we can never be anything more than just friends

I liked the story and the style. It's only the rhymes in the end that I found out of place, and somewhat did not fit into the flow -- but this is only a very unprofessional opinion
