Painfully Pleasant

by Blue Smurf   Nov 20, 2017

I find myself yearning,
Wishing that you were here,
A pulsing passion that is burning,
Filling my heart with fear.

It’s a painfully pleasant sensation,
Infiltrating from deep within,
Your luscious lips a big temptation,
Smoothing down my skin.

I can feel my heartbeat pounding,
Each time I’m next to you,
An emotion so astounding,
Which I’m agonizingly pushing through.

I know our story never is to be written,
Therefore I’m heartbreakingly saying goodbye,
Our love is harshly forbidden,
You are taken and so am I.

    I've kinda been out of the game for a wee while so forgive me if I get things a little wrong in anything I say.

    Firstly you rhyme a little like I me (yay I'm not alone) "smiles"

    Totally loved the flow of the poem and the content. For this reason I am nominating it.

    If I had one criticism it would only be that the last line of the second verse (stanza) could really have benefited from the addition of one word to aid it's flow.

    I don't measure and calculate, I do not word count. Sometimes you just feel and think.

    All in all

    Pretty fantastic

    Forbidden fruits - can end up tasting bitter.

    A good account of a situation, put together well
