The Love I Had For Her - Poem by mary raybon

The love I had for her then
Half of my family would say it’s a sin
I can heard them then in the back of my mind
That whole time
Their words are not so kind
The voices stopped me right in my tracks
Cuz they say whites aren’t supposed to be with blacks
I’ll leave their words at that
They are too harsh to even mention
They would only build up tension
Cuz Even though they never knew
they were talking about u
still till this day it makes me blue
I guess our love was hexed From the start
I should have listened to my heart

The love I had for her then
There was never one like it
I was just starting to like it
That’s why I had to keep it quit
I wanted to keep that love just for me
the rest of the world didn’t need to see
I didn’t need their constant scrutiny
I could’ve yelled at them till my voice became horse
Not that they’ll understand of course
My efforts would have been a waste
If only they could’ve had a taste of that love.
My heart grew to be sore
Cuz I couldn’t handle what was in store
And I couldn’t keep us locked up anymore
With all the breath in my lungs
I should’ve let our love sing out
Instead I simply blew the flame out
And u will be Just be a another painful memory for me
but it’s one of the ones were I can smile times
even though I set that love aside
I can still feel it in side
