Illicit Love

Rating: 4.1

Judged and found guilty and sentence pronounced.
Life for the love I couldn’t denounce.
Pure gentle and true, though tinged with blue.
Is that such a crime, my love for you.

The ring of your laughter’s a beautiful sound.
Its you that makes my whole world go around.
We both saw the writing upon the wall.
But when it all started we’d not planned to fall.

The times we had could not have been better.

Factual and realistic poem. Though forbidden, illicit love soothes a broken soul! A 10.

Once again, I am speechless. I agree with Mae..wish I would have thought of it. Recently went through this situation. But I know it was love...right feelings...wrong time. It happens. Sad as it seems...is reality and move on. Another awesome writing. You're my favorite..I will keep reading. Take care. Princess: -)

Illicit love is the most painful. but it is still LOVE. Wherever and however it comes. We can't deny it can we David? And we shouldn't. We can't help who we fall in love with. We are not machines after all. I like your work. I'd like to see something with a bit more 'flesh' if you know what I mean. And rhyming just doesn't matter to me. Keep loving. Keep writing. Angela
