Forbidden (An Original Poem)

Updated on March 25, 2015

Forbidden by any other

But not forbidden by me,

Even if I have to walk a million miles

I know that we must be.

Forbidden for me to touch

Forbidden to even kiss,

Forbidden to hold me in his arms...

What kind of torture is this?

I'll walk across the desert

I'll swim the deepest sea,

Only if it is promised

That he will be set free.

If he is forbidden to me

Then I am forbidden to breathe,

In this world I'd have no peace

What meaning would my life be?

To forbid my love for this man

Is forbidding the sun to shine,

How can you forbid something so beautiful?

I am his and he is mine.

This love I have in my heart

For he that shall go unnamed,

Grows stronger by the minute

Every night and day.

I'd rather you cut out my heart

Before giving up my love for him,

Without him here with me

My heart would cease beating.

Why take dew from a rose?

Why take music from a song?

Why take love from the world?

Why take me from where I belong?

A million times I love thee

A million times I care,

A million times I swear to you

That I will always be there.

If the sun should refuse to shine

If the sky should sit still,

Nothing can change my love for him

I do and I always will.

No longer forbidden to love

Because I have boken the bond,

No longer forbidden to touch

The day that I touched his hand.

So cast me from this world

Tear my soul apart,

It matters to me not

The forbidden one holds my heart.
