A Perfect Storm

A perfect storm they had created.
Two lovers destined to be mated.
Living life upon the edge.
Forged in crime, their love was pledged.

Wanted posters with each name. 
Loved and feared, the pair became.
Evading law from state to state.
Alas, this was to be their fate.

Romanticized through history.
Sprinkled with some mystery.
Running, hiding till the end.
Celebrities, some may contend.

The two had once been quite mundane.
They hungered to be free of plain.
And even now they are well-known.
From need and want their seeds were sown.

    You chose two great partners to emulate here. I still remember that bonnie and clyde movie from around the 60's or 70's it was awesome, like your poem.

    This is the first one I've read about this infamous pair of lovers..... yes,, they did make a name for themselves, ....perhaps soul partners on the road to fame but not glory!! A great depiction in your poem...well done, Samia!!

    nice one, samia.. did you mean, "They hungered to be free of PAIN"... or is it really "plain" which seems to be a typo error??.. you may want to edit?.. otherwise, a fine one.. :) huggs!

    Hi nette, Thank you very much. Actually, it is not a typo. I meant it to be 'free of plain' because they were both bored with their live:) Thank you so much for reading and commenting on it and also bringing that to my attention because it could have been a typo! :)
