Perverse

My heart tells me I like you
My mind says I'm not allowed to.
I know I can't have you, ,
How I wish that's not true.

I wish I could hold you forever!
And you'd stay with me to be near,
Feeling your presence beside me.
But I know this can not be.
Not for me.

A lot of people love.
And surround us.
They may become hurt,
By a careless act.
Have caused you pain...
Perhaps?
I must stop myself caring.

One thing that I do,
Is think of those sweet memories left...
By you...
But I somehow must be stop,
To quit...
My perverse love.

ARH! ! Leave it be, wise move.really great piece.
Oh how it hurts to love someone or fall in love with someone you can't be with. Very nicely written.
love yet seems wistful hiding the faith beneath the clouds heart still flows mind yet restrains the glow eyes when pierce the shadow of the faith.................love intense befuddled, holding the the room of reason, excellent write,10*, thanks for sharing
I thought it was very sensuous poetry you wrote quoting the word perverse, but it was a lighter version of obsession about sensuality.... the lit of being in love like that of a teenage girl! Sweet romantic poem...I liked it! High marks.
Unless you have other ulterior motives? Perverse seems more 'obsessive'. I enjoy this. It adds another 'twist' to perversiveness.
