Unsafe Relationships

Rating: 5.0

In the labyrinth of love, we dance on shards,
An unsafe relationship, where passion guards.
Our hearts entwined, a dangerous affair,
Fragile emotions, suspended in the air.

Bound by desire, we crave the forbidden,
Like a wildfire raging, our souls smitten.
Beneath the moon's gaze, we share stolen kisses,
A clandestine union that passion dismisses.

Yet, in this abyss, we find no solace true,
For danger lurks in every rendezvous.
Deception's embrace, a treacherous blend,
Leaving us vulnerable, hearts on the mend.

We tiptoe on razors, with trembling desire,
Knowing that our love will soon expire.
An unsafe relationship, a thrill and a fright,
We dance on the edge, embracing the night.

But deep down we know, this love cannot sustain,
A foundation of secrets, built upon pain.
So we release our grip, let go and depart,
For an unsafe relationship can't mend a broken heart.

James, Despite your Recent Rise to the Ranks of Renowned poets, I think you may want to review your use of an apostrophe in your title. Maybe? bri

You are usually right Bri, but what the heck, I can't read a book now a days without finding numerous typos in nearly every book I read.. Your friend, James.

The last line is a clincher. 'clincher definition: 1. something that helps someone make a decision' AND 'A clincher sentence is a concluding sentence reinforcing your key message.' (cont.)

James, I gave five stars, but, though you STRONGLY hinted at it, I believe you did NOT give me specific reasons why affair was not 'safe'.

Great poem, the last stanza say's it all, it has a wisdom all of its own.

Great poem, James, but Bri is correct. You should remove the apostrophe in the title.
