A Forbidden Love

Danyettia Crawford 1985 (United States)

A forbidden love it can never be
My heart yearns to love you in my fantasy
My thoughts are occupied of what and how it should be
Forgetting it is forbidden to love you I must set my heart free

Captivated in my lustful thoughts
Ceasing every moment to remember our talks
A feeling so powerful yet full of pain
We are forbidden to fall in love because our lives will change

A heart wants what it should not have
It is because of its deceitfulness I think you are mine to have
The joy of what I know we could be
This forbidden love is now haunting me

Words unspoken we will never know
This forbidden love is not meant to grow
Yet my mind ponders at the thought of you
Reminded that you can never have me, or I have you

Tension is eased in this forbidden fantasy
Forever a smile it is endlessly
If only of a moment it was not forbidden to see
What this is world would be like if it were you and me
But this love is forbidden and only a fantasy

IN MY POEMS I usually do not share my poems because they are sacred to me It is the place of no judgement where my feelings can be released In my poems is the best part of me This has been my outlet of things that has now set me free In poem is some of the greatest challenges I have faced But also, of the experiences that molded me into the woman I am today I have experienced a lot of joy but pain too Held myself responsible even for the things I never knew I grew into poems and them into me My heart is exposed through each word you read I allow vulnerability because the same poems I write are the same ones that saved me Heartbreak and lost I have endured it all Learned how to trust God and always stand tall Mistakes I made taught me the best In poems I surrendered my stress Depression hit like being overtaken by a wave But through my poems unbroken I stayed I am a book many dare not to read Mislead by the thought of knowing me In my poems is my reality often altered with some fantasy I am just me and I give my all So, as you read my poems, I hope I can make you smile more…
