Forbidden

. . . Stolen moments Quiet looks Accidental touches It’s how it is to be with you What started as childish rebellion Turned into first love Masked as forever Only to be revealed as an impostor What we had wasn’t sustainable The climate to tumultuous We were playing with fire Should come as no surprise […]
