Cardinal Sin Poem by Tracey TEE

Cardinal Sin

Rating: 5.0

In reality, I am not yours,
in my dreams we embrace
in a lover's kiss that makes me tremble
as your fingers softly caress my face.

No words are needed
just the need in our eyes
the electricity in our bodies
though we love through our lies,

The lust within us
like the ticking of a bomb
we no longer can control it,
though we know that this is wrong.

Requited love they call it
it has our very souls
locked together in confusion
no boundries does it know.

Lust, love wanting, needing
addiction flows within
two lovers lost in a love affair
forever in cardinal sin

This is a most excellently written and expressed poem, Tracy, though I do not agree that to love in dreams is a cardinal sin, especially for those whose love has been repressed for a long, long time by someone who should have appreciated it when it was his to have. Your phrasing in this beautiful and touching poem is quite exquisite! Carl.
