Weekly Prompt Angst or Longing

Just out of reach
The passion stays hidden
You belong to her
While our love is forbidden

It doesn’t stop our glances
Or our secret meetings
But we must meet in the shadows
With kisses so fleeting

I know we are soul mates
What we share does ascend
But then she takes a part of you
And I’m left to pretend

I long for the day to come
When we can share the nights
Oh let me show you my love
Don’t tell me it isn’t right

I dream of you in the nighttime
I ache for you in the day
I’m no good at sharing
Come and bed me without delay

Just out of reach
Our love is behind closed doors
You still go home to her
But forever my heart will be yours

  7. 😦 Felt this as though it were yesterday.

  8. Ouch! Very well written! Could definitely feel the angst. This poem should be captioned for the prologue to my next work.
