Author's Note: This is my favorite 'forbidden love' poem! Yes, as you've noticed (if you've read my other poems) I use flowers and seasons for imagery a lot. I don't think this is very hard to interpret at all, but as with everything else, I'm sure you all will each come up with something different. Well, hope you like it!

Our Love Is A Deathwish

Taint my virgin lips

In a bed of blue roses

Bathing in a pool of summer

Misfortune brought upon to whoever opposes

Affections considered taboo

Must remain hidden

Those who see through this act

Deem this love forbidden

Perhaps it is merely a fling

A lustful fit of passion

Or maybe the heart has grown fond

With equal exchanges of compassion

For what reason shall these two

Young lovers be to blame?

We all must be held in someone's arms

Experience the feeling of thy heart aflame

If thou disapprove, turn away

Do not speak words of chagrin

For these two lovers know well enough

That their love is sugar-coated with sin

What is hiding under the veil?

Shadows intimately posed

Lost in their own dream world

Their secret waiting to be exposed

Heal my jaded lips

In a tomb of black roses

Drowning in a pool of winter

Death to the one who opposes
