Forbidden Love

Forbidden Love


Clandestine meetings
Secrets and lies
Forbidden love
Slicing unbreakable ties
Stealing love
from another
Ignorance your bliss
Always hiding in cover
 
Blowing up lives
Causing pain
Years of happiness
Now down the drain
Excitement disguised 
As love evermore
Nothing can compete 
Like a rabid carnivore
 
Passion turned to hate
Anger and cruelty abound
Someone’s marriage in tatters
You, continuing to confound
As quick as it began
One day you’re gone
Without a goodbye 
The end of a love song

Be Gone

Be Gone


They said,
“If the broom fits, ride it!”
And she did, of course
Controlling, fearless and fierce
Aware of all secrets
And what might be source
 
Gifted with calculating skills
And knowing where souls and
skeletons were concealed
She used information acquired
Holding feet to the fire
Shameful stories were revealed
 
Stopping one day
To take refreshment
From an offered chalice 
It was poison she drank
That took her life
A death from obvious malice 
 
Despised by her enemies
Loved by her followers
She was both target and idol
An illustrious force of nature
A hurricane in a sandstorm
No one could ever unbridle
 
RIP you crazy witch
and haunt us no more
It’s enough we have to see
A constant calling card
Your hat on a pole
When all we want is to be free

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places


In this jungle
where love hides deep
camouflaged from scrutiny
and preferring to sleep
Harmony is rationed
for all but a lucky few
Kill or be killed
in a game for only two
 
Beware the predators
Stalking their prey
Like lambs to the slaughter
and so easy to sway
Sliding down
a slippery slope
Know that in the end
There is always hope
