Forbidden Fruit

My Guru forbade me
To touch you, ever!
But I was allowed to
See you, talk to you,
Stand close to you,
Less any maneuver.

So did I do, got close to you
And talked my heart out.
Didn't touch you,
Though I wanted to,
As you kept smiling at me
All throughout.

My Guru forbade me
To come near you and
Stand close.
But he gave me an allowance
Of just a yard's distance,
From nose to nose.

I was still much happy
As I could communicate
Audibly and visually.
But my Guru was not willing
To allow a romance so thrilling
To go on indefinitely.

Finally, my Guru forbade me
To be in your proximity,
Even to see you from afar.
So in my dreams I started
Seeing you as I wanted,
With no Guru standing near.

    Now, this I really liked! Benign defiance... always better to ask forgiveness than permission and love is always a forgiveable offense.

    Thank you very much for reading my poem and sharing your thoughts. Yes, grooming is very important in one's life. You've rightly said so.

    A nice penning expressing the state of conscience. Khairul - personally I believe... that person is fortunate enough who is properly groomed. This grooming itself guides a person to build his/her conscience.
    Ultimately...... you are the Lord, you are the slave of you yourself

    @ Marie Shine
    I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful compliments you have honoured me with. You have a unique ability to interpret a poem exactly as its author would like to do. 'though forbidden to even be in the proximity of your beloved, you were together in your dreams, where nobody had power over you.' - Exactly so!
