Forbidden Love - Poem by Arfa Iman Kalera

How can we pass through journey of life?
All alone and unaccompanied,
It is tedious and long,
But love is forbidden, like forbidden fruit

Heart asks me to love,
But mind is full of fear, fear lest
I should do something prohibited,
And stain my character.

Living hopes dwell in my heart,
And heart asks me to love,
But love is forbidden, like forbidden fruit.

The moment is as bright as flowers,
I know myself and you too.

Life is a journey tedious and long,
Only love makes it worth living,
But love is forbidden, like forbidden fruit.

    so, you are 15 years old? ok. do you mean forbidden by your religious leaders? forbidden forever or just until a certain age? bummer! ! too bad. i'm sorry. hopefully when you are allowed, you will receive the fruits of love you wish for and can give the fruits of love you have to give. in the meanwhile, don't get yourself stoned to death. gruesome thought.

    Or do you have parents or yourself who is/are against you having/giving love? or did you make up the whole poem and it is not even about you? ? ?

    hopefully you have other things [like poetry] to occupy your time and mind. are you talking about tender feelings or sex? ?

    bri :) nice poem.

    i like the repetition. to MyPoemList

    Heart asks me to love,
    But mind is full of fear, fear lest
    I should do something prohibited,
    And stain my character. Only love makes life worthliving. at your young age you hve understood the meaning of life and l ove. you should be bold enough to take decisions and love the man of your life. God bless you always. my prayers are for you. tony
