FRUSTRATION OF LOVE
Waiting in time, waiting in frustration
Communication not bringing any elation,
Why do you make me feel like this?
When all I want is your sweet kiss.
To feel your touch and sensual allure
To feel your beauty and concur,
That we cannot always be together
A couple of lovers never to be free.
Of life's chains and marital animosity
For if we were found out, it would be an atrocity,
We would be sinners and committed to hell
Perhaps, spat upon, beaten, who can tell?
Perhaps our love will survive all this rejection?
For our love is so strong it will give us protection,
If this is so my love, she said, why can't we wait?
And keep our love a secret this is our fate.
Fate, fate, have you no fear for your life?
There would be murder and all sorts of strife,
I love you deeply darling but I can't take the chance
What are you saying, you wouldn't put up a stance?
A coward she said, I thought you would be in shining armour
To protect me, are you telling me you're a peaceful non harmer?
Be off with you then, I don't want a coward for a man
And so of he galloped on his pushbike, nothing but an also ran.
