A FORBIDDEN LOVE

Written by: Larry McMillan Jr.

How can I love you more?
On this warm summer night,  I sought intently  for a solution……

When suddenly my eyes journeyed afar….
Fixated on the illumination and activity of nights bright stars,
Which led me to an apparent constellation -
A pattern of stars spelling out your name -
So beautiful, so radiant that its existence and purpose
Only God could explain.
I stared in awe and marveled for some time -
till something happened-something strange.
The stars abruptly shifted, no longer spelling CHARMAINE.
An arrow took form and its head  meant VAIN -
In my direction  … Swiftly it aimed…
Piercing my heart and exposed its pollution
….. I never loved her
