Sweet virgin, with the tenderest eyes,
We will burn together at the stake.
For all the dreams we tried to douse,
That have kept us both awake.

For I fell into your temptress arms,
Like a child falls into a well.
Like angels fall from the sky,
Like the innocent fall into hell.
Sweet virgin, with the tenderest lips,
And a smile that careens my soul.
We stand together before the crowd,
In a flame that swallows us whole.

    Nicely done Jessica. Nice flow, rhyme and rythmn. Terrific tale of forbidden love ... those tenderest lips and tenderest eyes have done in many a man's soul. Thanks for sharing. Joe
