When I look at you,
I canít help but remember
the first time I saw you.
When you looked at me,
I felt a tingle overtake my body.
I felt a warming to your boyish grin,
walking away from you,
wishing that I had said more.

As time past by,
I got to know you better.
I knew that there would be magic between us.
When I close my eyes I see your face,
and calmness takes over my body.
What I feel inside scares me to death.
My heart has never stirred like this before.

So many times I wanted to ask you
if you have ever been adored,
given a womanís heart and soul,
and unconditional love.
But I didnít.
My feelings for you are sacred.
Itís your mind and compassion
that has captivated my heart,
not your physical being.

I want to be the one that gives you true happiness.
I want to spin your world,
showing you that life is so precious,
worth living every moment of it in the present.
I truly believe that we have to live for today,
because tomorrow may never come.

How ironic that we believe we want to live for today, but when today stares at us in the face, some things are "forbidden"! Your words capture this very powerfully.

The secret admiration of love. I am wondering does shyness come along with this awesome write or maybe a crush?
Reviewed by Amber Moonstone 12/19/2008
I too have this kind of love for someone that is really "forbidden love", It is beautiful and deadly at the same time. You are absolutely right, one must live in the present, tomorrow may never come. Wonderful poem and very heartfelt in so many ways.

Happy holidays,
Peace, love, and light,

i don't see the forbidden in this, but it does speak to way we loose ourselves to the power of love and in that our leap of faith brings so many emotions

When the right connection is made with the heart, the world stands still. It's magical, almost holy.

Your closing line is empowering, Karen: "...we have to live for today because tomorrow may never come."

There is only one "best" time for anything. That time is now!

A stirring poem filled with insight, emotion and sage advice.

This is a very good poem, but then wonder how did I miss it. Is THIS forbiddenness the root of all the legitimate? I liked the perspective, the motif, the flow...

A very good job!

Hi Karen,

I love the passion that shines through this poem. Would you be interested in having an excerpt of it in a work of fiction? I'd be more than happy to acknowledge you as the author of the poem and list your website in the book. Let me know, please.

Either way, it is a fabulous piece of poetry and I wish you the very best!

An excellent expression of the complexity of loving someone. It's rough, but even in the mere loving itself is an inherent and proud beauty. Very nice.

Isn't love so scary my riend and you have expressed such feelings and emotions in this piece. When we give our heart it is in the hands of the person that we think at the time deserves it but they sometimes don't. This is why I felt the fear in this piece. Excellent real expressions rom the heart that I always admire in a writer.

The one venue of writing I never dared to explore (and for good reason) - poetry. I can't write good poetry but I can enjoy good poetry, more to the point I can FEEL good poetry. This poetry feels great (Do I sound a little too much like a certain cereal eating tiger?). Exceptional write!
