Forbidden Love

Is it possible that an angel and a demon could fall in love?
And, remain soul mates for all eternity?
Yes, and I will tell you how it happened.

Maybe, it was a miracle that they met
or maybe it was just meant to be.
That an angel fell out of heaven and a demon escaped from hell
on the very same day.
They saw no one, but each other.
Yet, neither had ever seen such a creature.

The angel was beautiful and kind.
This angel had fallen from heaven
a place of light and life, and of hope and peace.

The demon was imperfect and shy.
This demon had escaped from hell
a place of darkness and death, and of despair and pain.

When they met, their eyes met.
And without a spoken word.
The angel saw only tenderness and hurt in this lost demon.
The demon saw only compassion and love in this lost angel.

It did not matter to them if one had wings, and the other had horns.
Yet, they saw themselves within each other.
Even though they were from two different worlds.
They embraced each other.
Though, they knew their love was forbidden by others like themselves.
So, they decided to remain here on earth.
Where their bond could not be broken.

The heart of the angel was no longer filled with loneliness and longing.
The heart of the demon was no longer filled with torment and sorrow.
Love is what they both were searching for.
And it was found on that very same day.
A forbidden love, everlasting for all eternity.

    Thank you for pointing out this one to me; it is a romantic write in its own original way. Lovely to see it end well...hopefully happily living ever after! Another example of eyes and hearts working in unison. // paul

    Hi Kelly, the bad news is, he's back. Forbidden Love, told in your own inimitable style, is a very good piece of prose. I don't know if it is so but it seems to me as if you think out the piece carefully before you started to write it. Once again, you tell a tender story with simple, straightforwad words and it comes out as a beautiful canvas. The story floats on the breeze of Love itself. One from the dark and one from the light can Love, just ask a Dark Man. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Mike, that is not bad news, I am glad to see you back! Sometimes, when I get an inspiration for a poem, I do think about where the story could go before I start writing. Or, sometimes lines will come to mind, and I just write them down and then piece the story together later. Thank you for the wonderful comments, my friend. And, I agree, we all can find love, and it does not matter who we are.

    EPIC yourself! So refreshing to read love story about an angel and a demon where the latter isn't 'demonized!' So well realized and rendered. Thanks... you warmed my heart.

    LOVELY PIECE OF WORK I HAVE A FALLEN ANGEL ONE MYSELF CALLED LUST A PLEASURE TO READ BEAUTIFUL

    the reason to this forbidden love, is Liken to falling for your cousin or brother/sister coz they are sons and daughters of god. another theory is that there are no daughters of heaven in the bible. but tis is a fairy tale quite close to that reality. You could also portray a murderer and a school teacher. . . now that's be very interesting. sorry got me wandering day dreaming. ..
