A love that would have been
He was dark I was light
That’s all they could see

A lower class, a different class
Its just no good to ask
It was all a farce

Blinded by ignorance, rumours
None of them were true
Only was my love for Drew

Friends shunned me
Just when I needed them
Relatives became my enemies

Everyone was told
No one listened to my heart
Only the gossips of the cold

Now I sit, I pity them
In happiness of my love
We’re together now
Me and Drew, alone, above.

    Seems like the whole world was against the two of you. My unposted poem has something like that in it, too. I'm glad it worked out for you two.
