Forbidden Love - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

You were enchanted
And took my love for granted...
You thought I was a kitten
But I turned out to be a lion!
Now that you have been bitten,
And you are no longer wanted,
I am made of flesh, not of iron...

Once and for all,
I took your mask off
And judged you
By your actions,
Not real love or passion,
You turned me off...

I uncovered the secret
In your heart hidden,
Aware that I ate of the fruit
That was forbidden,
Revealed was the truth!

Now, brokenhearted,
I sing a different song,
To another man you belong
And you hid it from me
Before we got started
But one day you will pay
For your misdeed
And alone you will stay!

At this moment,
Trapped with no choice,
I continue with this torment
That clearly mutes my voice!
Hoping to find a real love,
I silently plead to One above!
