Love Denied !

 

How oft have we talked ?
How oft have we embraced ?
How oft have we loved ?

Alas !

Tiz but a dream !
for,
This is a love, that must be denied !


Eyes betray not !
Heart stir not !
Mind, crush all thy desires !

For,
This is a love, that must be denied !


How oft have I wished this ?
How oft have I dreamt this ?
How oft have I planned on what to do at THIS moment ?

Yet, now,
Now when my thoughts have become flesh,
Alas !
I can not ACT !

Mine blood is chilled,
Breath is trapped in mine own body,
Mine body moves not now !

For,
This is love, that must be denied !


Neither in the heavens above,
Nor on this Earth,
Nor in the depths of the oceans so vast,
Have I seen such beauty !

Neither in the heavens above,
Nor on this Earth,
Nor in the depths of the oceans so vast,
Have I felt such ecstasy !

Neither in the heavens above,
Nor on this Earth,
Nor in the depths of the oceans so vast,
Have I suffered such agony !

For,
This is love, that must be denied !
