FORBIDDEN LOVE: by Geoff Pirie

Today, I've the sincere pleasure of introducing the work of Geoff Pirie twice.

I think you'll agree, he's a talented and spiritually moving writer.

I first met him on Facebook and, after reading some of the beautiful things he posted there, instantly became a fan of his gentle, romantic style of writing.

And now, Geoff Pirie ...

by Geoff Pirie

I live through my dark existence;
Only to bask in your beauty;
Your eyes shine like sapphires;
Your smile brightens my day:
Oh, how I envy the wind
 that runs through your hair
and touches your lips;
I long to hold you in my arms....
but I cannot;
For your heart belongs to another;
So as I love you from afar;
More than anything this world provides:
Like an angel...
you have touched my heart;
I have never felt a love like this before;
I saw the night sky clearing
when you spread your rainbow wings;
You kissed away my tears
and sheltered my heart:
But then I grew fearful;
For I had fallen in love;
I cried for the friendship
I thought I had lost;
Then felt your gentle hand in mine:
As you whispered
soft words of comfort
straight to my heart;
These camouflaged emotions;
Pain...and silent cries;
Yet...still I cannot tell you:
These feelings so cathartic;
I tremble when I'm near you;
Cant you see it in my eyes?
Forbidden pleasures...
Who makes these rules?
