Like tasting fruit from a vine that isn't quite ready We sat waiting for something to tell us to stop But feelings poured out all over a page We both hoped nobody would read. In silence we tout of love everlasting Though we know the frowns all too well. A simple love between the two of us Should be the only thing we need to know. Though waning, we know it is going to last Through the tears and condescending voices. We hold hands in parks and know the looks Smiling, we try to evade. Though we could teach them each a lesson in love We don't, because they wouldn't listen. Meeting family tested our resolve Would we get approval from anywhere? Silence once took an evening As I sat waiting for you to call. Was this the time you'd change your mind? A fear crept into my life and stayed. Though we know we cannot change who we are Or who we've chosen to love We also understand our love In places is forbidden.
