Photo Challenge #172 – Its Forbidden!


Image: – Mrs. White

It’s forbidden to like you

It’s forbidden to look at you as I do.

It’s forbidden to feel for you as I do

It’s forbidden to want you as I do.


In public, we are as friends

We laugh and share our stories

No one suspects how we lust

How we can’t wait to be out of the public eye.


It’s forbidden to touch you as I do

It’s forbidden to feel the silkiness of your skin

It’s forbidden to want to kiss you

It’s forbidden to consider any of these things.


We dress as twins

Our deception keeps us alive

My mother wants me to marry William

He works in accounts, a nice man

A safe man, a man of morals.


We meet in secret

Our embrace awakens our bodies

We crave the touch of the other

We lie together, you feast on my body

I graze across your form

Never sated, seeking more.


It’s forbidden that we meet

It’s forbidden we are in love

It’s forbidden and we’ll burn

It’s forbidden but I need you.

    I hate that some countries and society are so cruel to Lesbian and Gay people! 💜💗💟

    I almost wrote my tale this way, but chose a different direction. Well done.

    You could put that to music and have a hit on your hands, especially during Gay Pride. Fantastic!
