Our Moment 

 

There are a thousand poems about

a thousand forbidden kisses

 capturing thousands

of moments.

 

‘Time stands still’ they say.

A timeless description

perfectly fitting our moment

that lasted a lifetime.

 

They say ‘it feels so right’,

so why is the weight of

our secret

crushing me?

 

They say a forbidden kiss

seals our fate

but not us.

We go on

in silence as if our forbidden kiss

never happened.
