Katniss Everdeen


Forbidden Love


This shouldn't be happening
It is taboo
But I have a guilty pleasure
I can't stay away from you
I know I have to though
This forbidden love is through

We both have lives
This is just a bit of fun
And yet, still, I am drawn to you
But I am bound to another one
My one true love
This forbidden love is done

Stay away from me
The temptation is too great
This is just lust
I cannot bear the judgement weight
We do not belong together
This forbidden love, I hate

We both chose to betray
But it was once, not twice, or more
I cannot bear this burden
I can't take it anymore
I need to get out of this place
This forbidden love is causing war

I must confess, tell the truth
I cannot live with this lie
I am torn between two hearts
This burden makes me want to lash out and cry
I can only live with the truth
This forbidden love is killing me inside

I need to get out
I can't deal with this load
All this pressure on my heart
I cannot travel down this road
I will not do it anymore
This forbidden love will make my head explode

I have to go, abandon this town
Leave and never return
I pack my things, get ready to go
Who cares if I raise concern?
I need to move temptation away
This forbidden love will burn

This forbidden love is through
This forbidden love is done
This forbidden love, I hate
This forbidden love is dumb

This forbidden love is causing war
This forbidden love is killing me inside
This forbidden love will make my head explode
This forbidden love is leaving me tied

This forbidden love will never return
This forbidden love will help me learn
This forbidden love makes my heart turn
This forbidden love will burn

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
