(the) Fate Of Fatal Lovers

Fated to be in a togetherness...
No one comprehends but them.

The fate of fatal lovers,
In a relationship
Others tell them not meant to be.

There is too much abuse done publicly.
And in private this feeds a romance...
Enhanced by physical foreplay,
Some say is quite sick.

They both inflict scars and wounds.
This attraction seems to be headed for doom.
But no one can see,
After the slapping and blackened eyes...
The love between them made!

Fated to be in a togetherness...
No one comprehends but them.
It just needs less notoriety.
With a maturity that has yet to begin.

To be loved in such a way- -totally and without reservation. To love in such a way- totally and without reservation. That is living on the edge in all the ways that could be wonderful and in all the ways that could be disastrous. Extraordinary piece!
so great poem...he wanted to say that......me is you............! ! ! ! with a very simple words......what a fabulous...
I've heard that this poem is better translated in Portuguese but I still found the essence of these words to be so hauntingly sad and romantic.
