forbidden love poems

A collection of quotes/words from
artworks, lyrics & forbidden love poems
from the THE LIFE POEMS project.


Guilty Only
In Our Silent
Confessions

Echoes of our ghost
Surround us in the dark
In the car ride home
In the skyline sparks
The fireworks we drive by
Remind me of that first night
I wonder if you
Are reminded of it too
But life goes on
Building lives as wives
Moving on and traveling far
We are where we are
Where we need to be
While whispers in the sheets
Wonder what could be
These are the fondest
Wonders of destiny
But we won’t reopen that can of truth
A power of gravity of blinding youth
A gravitational pulse till the end of time
A perception of nothing less than sublime
Long, long ago and for always
But words mean nothing anyway
We broke no rules
Only our own hearts
No one knows this night exists
Yet we are innocent
Guilty only in our silence

Defied The
Authorities
To See That
Face

Defied the authorities to see that face
Whispering rain what a chase
Night games
Scandalous escapes
An honest exchange
An ironic place
Revealing
And defining
As twilight rages upon us
My breath cannot catch up
Your drawings will decorate my caves
Long after I board that plane
Your silky lips of gold
Waterfall kisses that will flow
Dripping with eternal locks
Long after my heart stops
5 am sunlight and we already know
I wish I didn’t have to go

When The Sun
Touches My Lips
I Only Think Of His

Your juicy lips
Sweet soft underbelly
You are so sincere
You take good care of me
In the late hours
After miles and miles
Of whiskey roads
And bottled bubbles
I think I like you
But when the sun
Touches my lips
I only think of his
I only long to kiss another
I only wear a crown of lies
Don’t look to my eyes
I wear no disguises
I realize my heart
Does not belong here
You are so sincere
You take good care of me
But I have to go

Sand

I never got a chance to tell you
How that expression on your face stayed with me
Even while I lay sleepless in a small bed
With a foreign moon singing me lullabies
It helped me relax though I still could not rest
Eyes closed lips pursed
Hands slow bodies immersed
In an overflowing cup as the sun came up
That came to an abrupt halt upon my return
That morning you were quiet
And I was calm
The grand canyon between us
Filling with sand
No more sleight of hands
Only piercing revelations of what we had become
Before we ever had begun

Distant
Ships

An infinite and evolving case
You and I disbursed
A fragile and delicate lace
A transparent but cursed
Distorted prism
Magnetic ideas repulsing our chances
Forcing momentum into the arms of another
Strong branches holding me up
While I searched for those eyes
And long for a clever disguise to change where I’ve been
Denial leads to paralyzed states
But nothing was ever more clear
Than I love you
I wanted you to know
The declarations melt off my lips on fire
With no intention to change where we are
The hearts ablaze will never fade into a pile of dust
They are the lights of the distant ships
That drift and drift but never rust

Oh How You
Still Come So
Often

You came to me in a dream again
Oh how you come so often
When I sense a change in the seasons
This time we were close and enough
No drinks and no drugs
No thoughts of guilt or shadowing lovers
Just you and me alone again
One last time
Your eyes
Your head on my shoulder
Your laugh on my neck
Your heavy breathe in my heart
Your gentle mouth gently starts
You remember my soft skin
And I have no will again
Words of attempted sacrifice
To salvage the remains
That wilt
Only to bloom in a cycle
Of endless taunting tornados
That have never let me settle in one place
Long enough
To really confess the truth
That I was waiting all along for you
To rip me from the world
I had created without you
And put me in the place
You will now call home with her

Love Like A
Piece Of Fluff

Try to stay away
Attempt to let you go
Slip away like a piece of fluff
You try to touch
That floats farther away
Yet time stands still
While your hands fill
With me
We are never free

Fragile
Boundaries

Fragile boundaries
Reveal themselves in the reflection
You want it fresh but there are no codes to destruction
To think about your deals
Time erases as much as it heals
Staying together in pieces apart making lives while losing heart
Think of me but never know while lovers come and lovers go
You want to go back
You want to take some of it back
But you can only change the way you are today
And what if I left, if I cut all the trim
Would it be so bad in the end
Regret is never a very good friend
Staying together in pieces apart making lives while losing heart
Think of me but never know while lovers come and lovers go
