A Love That Cannot Be


Unexpectedly I met you.

A love, that cannot be.

Lustful moments, but few.

An encounter by chance.

I love the sound of you and me.

Neither one of us asked for this.

Our hearts, promised to others.

Neither one of us can live without this.

Secretly, in love we are.

Oh, how we both yearn for this.

Yet neither has the courage to admit.

Illicit feelings, felt so strongly from afar.

Our love, simply cannot be.

I am not good for you.

Or you for me.

Our love, simply cannot be.
