Forbidden Love: A Love Caught In Tradition

Love caught in tradition…

Ease this burning incision
I would have muted this heart
Had I known it’s precision
Had I known our fate
Though that star caught fire
I would have swore it a liar
I would have silenced my wish

The arrow that shot me through
Came out of nowhere whilst before you
Had I known our future state
I would have blinded my stare
I would have blocked it for good
If I understood right there

Those who witness our turmoil marvel with little care
How these lovers bemoan
Unable to bear
I wake with you still on my breath
These endless thoughts of you will surely bring me to my death

Was it a past sin that brought Misery to grin
Was I in another life your secret wife
Do our souls acknowledge something
That to us remains hidden
This cruel punishment leaves us virtually bed ridden

Why did this heart lie
I trusted it was true
When I felt it’s first beat for you
Forbidden love thus hangs me alive
You alone are the hope in which I survive
Death can take me on the condition
It brings rescue from this torturous rendition
