Ever have a lover?
Ever wonder if that lover
was true to you?
Are you married to another?
Is that lover?
Shall I continue?

Why is Love seen as a crime?
Are we so behind the times
that we cannot see
what we do
to our own society?
I wonder at times,
are we really free?

She told me today
that nothing
that I wanted to hear
was wrong.
I can hear the deceit
in that twisted siren song.
When asked
she said she might be pregnant
with her husbands child,
I could hear the pain
again and again,
my thoughts
just as wild.

Never
did it enter my mind
to deny what I felt inside,
I love
my never-to-be bride,
whatever she should decide
to do with our time
we now spend
in contemplation
of each otherís rhyme.

Hard on her
is not what Iíd say,
better to say crushing,
as supportive as I can be,
I canít be there.
I feel like rushing
To her side,
cursing the husband
who denies her
and holds her
With ties
that bind
and intertwine.

Hopefully,
sometime sheíll read
this verse
and know
that I donít curse
her,
hopefully reverse
the downward slide
into guilt and denial
that being apart
has engendered
from me
right
from the start.

very nice work, I have often thought of the theme of this poem, this internet where 2 people meet and fall deeply in love, never to meet and never to touch, how does love that feels so right be considered so wrong?

again...very nicely done....I am new here, but already I like this site, and I like the way you express yourself
