I don't actually know what this poem is supposed to be based on...

 

"I cannot live without you,"

He whispers gently in her ear,

Hands moving hers to his heart,

"Forever you will live... in here."

 

She lies silent beneath him,

A sad smile set upon her face.

Her heart completely aware,

That "here", sadly, is not her place.

 

In her heart, she knows the truth,

But her head just cannot believe -

That it's this relationship,

That she will shortly, come to grieve.

 

His fingers move so slowly,

Tracing warm lines over her skin.

Both lovers remain silent,

One is hiding the truth - her sin.

 

She watches him as he moves,

Her soft hands clasping him tightly,

Savouring the love they share,

Moaning just ever so slightly.

 

Later, as he is sleeping,

No longer is the truth denied.

She spends the rest of that night

Heartbroken, and dying inside.

Truly well written. Sad though. Gives the reader a great deal about which to think. Liked the rhyming scheme.

A good one for a reluctant woman to share with a guy. Before the night begins. I guess that would kill the mood. For him at least.

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.
