It Is Forbidden - Poem by David Harris

The smiling eyes,
alluring lips
greet me everyday,
but in front of me,
there is a sign that reads,
you can look,
but you can’t touch.
It is forbidden to go there.
You have a wonderful life,
why fill it with despair.

    ...as it is with all things tempting, so it is, with longing that shlould not be addressed!
    Good write.
