"Till Death Does Us Not Apart"

Two hands unite as one.
Two hearts beating in tune,
in rhythm, in sync,
buried in the same tomb.
Alive they were in love.
In death, not apart.
Nothing can tear them away.
Nothing can break their hearts.
As long as they had each other,
the world would stand still,
singing a song of passion,
pure love and freewill.
They withstood the tests of time.
They overcame every mountain.
And when old age beckoned them,
they drank from youth's fountain.
Blessed with all the glory of the world.
Cursed with all the pain.
When someone got hurt,
they felt it just the same.
This was their punishment,
their burden to carry,
for their love was forbidden,
they were not allowed to marry.
Two sides of a coin.
Two rights, make a wrong.
And even in death,
their pain carries on.

Sensual and exotic, and free too. Your poetry is a tiger bursting out of a pomegranate in a Salvador Dali painting. LOL. In other words, damn impressive. I love your passion for poetry. :)

I love Astra's Dali painting metaphor!!

I also loved, "Blessed with all the glory of the world. Cursed with all the pain. When someone got hurt, they felt it just the same."

That's the true love i know and forbidden love IS the best - my Robin and I can attest... I was a long haired "no good hippy type" when we first met, and her parents eventually told her it's him or us, and incredibly, she chose me!!!

thank u bb, yea i liked it too. tigers are my fave animal. she knows this. hmm my parents may not have liked a few of my bfs but they never told me i couldnt date anyone. but i know that feeling of doing something your not supposed to do, its invigorating. and when someone tells yu not to do something you tend to want to do it even more. im glad she chose you. you shouldnt ever have to choose between the people you love, its a terrible decision to have to make. and thank you acaetna i appreciate it. have you read my beauty and beast poem yet??

A tale of forbidden intimate nature between sides of light and dark, interesting read, Nikki...

an angel, a demon. Forsaken lovers beyond the light so dark. twisting fate to taste what love truly is, everything and nothing all at once. Lovely your words are.
