FORBIDDEN LOVE

Written by: delysia hendricks

Dine a la carte
with my secret sweetheart
a half dozen roses
in differing poses
champagne glass in hand
soft notes from the band

vows ever after
sweet smiles and laughter


eyes locked in stare
romance in the air
emotions a-brew
old blending with new
eyelids a-fluttering
to whispered sweet nothings

vows ever after
sweet smiles and laughter

Love ballad dancing
and sensuous prancing
a oneness of feeling
and merging of being
open-eyed nose-meet
wings on the feet

vows ever after
sweet smiles and laughter

Instead we are pained
to outsiders chained
with emptiness fraught
our love counts for naught 
mere love poems writ
twixt two lovers smit’

no vows ever after
sweet smiles or laughter
