Forbidden Love

A rebellious cat and mouse game
Shocked us all with the love that came

The surprise look in every eye knowing
Yet each without words to explain

How could the ones who protect you get it so wrong
Why the fear of different worlds questioning where you belong
What should matter is being his princess, his queen all fair
And him prince charming, your king crowned in care

Stolen moments thick with emotion
The yearning looks of unspoken devotion
Time stands still and our silence speaks volumes
While the promise of forever fills the air

What is integrity when all you feel is anguish and pain
From trying to navigate family honour and duty in vain
Life can be cruel or is it the people who proclaim to love and care
When all they do is weigh you down with pressures to bear

What choice to make about which path to take
Do we succumb and let go of our dream
How will we know if we do not try
Will our feelings numb and our desires die

In the end we’re pulled apart
I’m left feeling like dying from a broken heart
Trying to stay strong while hiding my tears
Not wanting to journey within my deepest fears

How do I ever carry on living without our happy ending
When I’m surrounded by the people I’m hating
Where to put all these negative feelings to rest
With what to convince myself that this was for the best

As time passes you may think your wounds heal
But then a special song scent and word
Births moments of sadness and hurt
Causing old emotions to stir that you can’t help but feel

There may be a beautiful sunrise or sunset
That wakens dormant thoughts bringing past to present
And even though that time together was short lived
Those memories will always evoke a secret life that lives on forever
