I have been in a deep slumber for all this time
Millions of years
Oblivious of the bond between us
Blind to the passion inside us
But now I am awake
As you lay beside me on the cool sheets
Moving closer to my warm skin
Nave, unknowing, and inexperienced
You, too, are asleep
And yet, somehow, you have always known
You have always been aware
I could read it in your large violet eyes
Whenever you looked at me
Whenever we touched I could feel it
As I do now, fingering your raven locks
That shadow your delicate face
Skin soft, sweet, and supple is what lies beneath
That ebony waterfall of silk
Unable to do otherwise
I touch that honeyed treasure
That quivers under my caresses
My mouth seeks out your half-opened lips
And gently brushes them before you sigh in sweet rapture

Why is love between two such as us wrong?
We are forbidden, you and I
You, with your dark wings
And I, the golden one
Love between us is denied always has been
Law set in stone since time has begun
We must not be discovered
For if they find us, we will die
My lovely one, release your black wings
And together, we will fly up to paradise
A place where we are free to love
And no one will be able to touch us!

But only for tonight
Yes, tonight we love
For with the coming rays of dawn
Will surely bring the battle
A battle we could never win

Liked It
I really liked this poem. A lot. On one side is a gentle and tranquil picture of your girl, very much in love. And on the other is a picture of hatred, conflict and intolerance, a sharp contrast. The words were pretty.

Also, your poem "X" should be under haiku. You can revise that in the Control Panel when you login. There is a separate category for that brand of poem. Liked that one too.
