Forbidded Love - Poem by Kuda Bondamakara

It was a long time ago;
Before the sleeping giants became awake
In this land far, far away
That I fell in love with a beautiful angel;
But ours was a forbidden love

Nothing would make us sway;
For, she would swear and I would swear;
By this land far, far away;
That her and I were not in love;
Fearing for our forbidden love;

No-one has kept this mine heart ablaze;
Or has any feeling arose
(As they now know in this land far, far away)
With the consuming fire of love;
Love that is a forbidden love.

So, to us two it came as foul-play
When our clansmen not half so happy,
Invoked the laws of this land far away,
Making it abominable for us two to love;
Announcing, ours was a forbidden love;

When it refused to rain for a day;
And the sun was burning ablaze
In this land far, far away
The elders pointed a finger at our love
And blamed it all on the forbidden love,

They sought to appease
The gods of this land, one day
With human sacrifices that would atone
For the sins of this land far away.
And looked at us and our forbidden love;

She was sublimed into an angel
Whose wings flapped to a kingdom far away;
To heal the wounds of her envious kinsmen
But I ran fast, without any delay
To a land far, far away.
Scared to lose our forbidden love.
