Long Distance Love

dear beloved
time flies unheeded
our days apart stretched
our love tormented
punctured by the passing time
temptations in our hearts
threatening our accord
intoxicating our minds
with wild thoughts
brainwashing our hearts
with forbidden desires
the source of wickedness

dear beloved
the boat of our love
is ever rocked by the feisty winds
hostile waves bashing us nonstop
bruising our hearts
with their powerful emotions
breaking our love
with their convincing force
severing our bond
with their sharp edge
condemning our love
with their lightening touch

dear beloved
hold onto our love
do not allow time to trick you
stay away from those temptations
abstain your mind from those wild thoughts
never open the lid of the pot of the forbidden desires
pray hard for the feisty winds to pass
and the storm to die
for the boat of our love is strong.

I like this poem so much. It speaks to the fears inherent in a long distance romance. Fears of being forgotten or replaced. Very well done. Trish
