I used to watch him from a distance


For I knew my feelings for him could never come into existence


As long as our families hated each other


Just because our skin color was of another


I watched and watched as the days went by


Hoping maybe one day, I would hear his lovely voice say a simple hi


I never thought it would actually happen


For it's a fool's dream to imagine


Then one day


When the sun was bright


And the clouds were out of sight


I was sitting on the park's wooden bench


When I heard someone behind me say


"Miss how are you doing on this gorgeous day?"


This simple question was how our secret began


We were young and careless


And never thought to have a plan


For awhile things between us were good


And I thought maybe we could


Make this love work


But I should have known


That our feelings for each other should have been locked away and left alone


Untouched by us and unseen by the outside world


It didn't take long before we were betrayed


When a trusted friend of his gave us away


That night we ran


Into the forest to escape


What we knew would be our fate if we stayed


We laid on the moist forest floor that night


Hidden from everyone and out of sight


I knew it would soon be time to say goodbye


But I tried to be strong and not give my eyes the permission to cry


He held me close and whispered in my ear


"I love you my dear, we have nothing to fear."


He then pulled out two guns


Handing me one


I knew this was the only way we could truly be together


But still, I couldn't help but wonder what could have been


If our love wasn't meant to be forbidden


Out of our mouths, we spoke our final goodbyes


Speaking only what was in our hearts and telling no lies


We then both sat up and held the gun to each other's head


Knowing that tomorrow, two forbidden lovers would be dead
