The Other Side of Love

Forbidden is the feeling in my heart
as I gaze into his eyes.
“How could it be that there’s no glow between him and me?”
I still sense the simple touch upon my face before he turned and walked away.
My heart shrunk inside my chest.
It doesn’t beat and it doesn’t feel.
“Can this really be called love?”
I can’t help but think that it’s all in my head for it was never my right to call him my own.
“Is it this that makes it forbidden?”
If so, I want to awake from this nightmare and be once more who I was before.
My innocence has now faded into the wind.
Then again, I still dream of his lips, his smile and I wish I would never wake up.

Everyone has experienced heartbreak at least once in their lifetime. To that special someone that got away or is tormenting your soul this instant. Cheers.

Cause there’s no life without love or the loss of it.

I’m your typical young woman who delves in all things artistic… and conventional. Writing is a hobbie—and a preferred one at that. I love music as much as I love reading. Its like breathing. I don’t like false and pretentious people, I’m not quick to anger and I consider myself a dreamer. That’s me in a nutshell, I guess.
