Prison Love


He lives in a cell, all hidden away
While she is out here, living her life, day to day
They share a bond, no one can understand
With guards all around they sit hand in hand
Playing a game or talking all day
The outside world cannot see how they make it this way
Its unconditional love they do share
Communication and trust is all they have there
All they get is a hug and a kiss
A special moment neither wants to miss
Simple letters each day in the mail
No one knows the strain a prison love entails
You give your all to make it last
Cuz it can all end so quick, so fast
It takes a lot of honesty and a lot of trust
Believing that the other won't give in to lust

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.
