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

Goodbye My Friend: Lover’s End

 

You want me back?

You miss me so?

You came to hear the train whistle blow?

Well I’ve done gone

Jumped off the crazy train

Ain’t looking back and boarding again

Been down too many tracks

Down winter’s pass

Too narrow bridges for the rail to last

Ain’t looking back

I’ll say it again

Ain’t looking back

Bid you farewell my friend.
