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

Nostalgia

The warmth of a breeze 
The rustling of the trees 
A special sunset or a twinkling star 
Remembering you and pondering where you are 
Do you think of me too and the things we use to do 

Words unable to express the feelings that filled our space 
When every second together felt like a saving grace 
Sharing memorable moments of joyous times 
With your warm smile and laughing eyes 
Safely cocooned in a world of our own 

Years later my thoughts run away 
Meeting where only dreams prevail 
Why did we part and break each others heart 
Are you happy in bliss or living a numbing pain 
Could we have made it through if we had tried again 

Thinking of what may have been 
Wondering about everything unseen 
Was our ending worth the sorrow 
Did we both experiencing a better tomorrow 

I allow my emotional well wishes to take flight 
Hoping you’re somewhere in-love and your life filled with light

Goodbye

My heart breaks with physical pain
It’s inconceivable and totally insane 
How can this be to never see you again 

PER CHANCE we meet with ease 
From two to three in a breeze 
Our trio began for fun to be had 

Ears to listen and tears to dry 
A shoulder to lean on 
Never asking why 

Things happen within life’s clutch 
Time passes and we all loose touch  
Though the distance is never too much 

We find each other in crises
Giving support at length 
For love joins us all in strength 

Not seeing each other time wasted
Especially with bonds so strong 
We all make mistakes and sometimes go wrong 

Making plans to see 
Arrangements with glee 
So sad when these never come be 

Your secret language now in the sky 
100 Pieces Fahrenheit and Poendie Pie 
This we’ll miss I tell no lie 

The smile on my face and the laugh in our soul 
How could we to know your sweet hello
Would be our last GOODBYE.

Together Apart

Little looking up
Happy and calm
Bond so strong
Knowing you belong 

Innocent fun 
Out for a run 
On the beach 
And in the sun 

Growing older
Becoming bolder
Drifting apart
The breaking heart 

Feeling of loss 
Mental health cost 
Emotional yearning
Future fearing 

Time passes 
Life gives classes 
The universe clever 
Finding ways together 

All worlds the charm 
Surely there can be no harm 
It’s on a mend 
Together again 

Understanding amiss 
Where’s the bliss 
The dynamic unclear 
Losing a real fear 

To and fro 
Where to go 
Can better return 
With scars a burn 

All the trying 
Situation tiring 
It’s disdainful 
Our relationship painful 

Realization and acceptance sad 
Acknowledging the times had 
Its all so unfair 
For love is truly there
