The Lovers

They meet in secret places always hidden from view.

It is not the way they want it to be , but it’s what they have to do.

They do not respect the weather no more than it does them.

It makes no difference to them they need each other again and again.


Hidden from preying eyes , keeping out of the light

They are born  not to be together, how can that  be right.

Sadly they both married young though not to one another

Finding  each other  too late, which made them star crossed lovers.


The pain they suffer stifles them, it sucks them dry

Inside they are shriveling up, such pain yet no tears left to cry.

They are getting older why don’t  they just embrace the truth

Surely their families must know,  and they have now lost their youth.


The trouble is they are old school they care for people’s feeling’s

They love their children and put them first however their senses start reeling.

But it is so hard to love one person yet stay with another

To forgo your feelings for your lover and make do with the one you wed that you just see as a brother.

    Love it, so like oldskool lovers to remain that. Marriage licences should have expiry dates as its rare for love to run smooth and often when poverty comes through the door love leaves quicker than a light going off

      Oh! so true love can be very very fickle. Some of us do have staying power though! 😉 xx

        Not me, unfortunately, my longest relationship was 15 years, had she not been such a liar it may have lasted until now. Only 6 of those were spent as a married couple which says a lot doesn’t it?

        At the time I’d have said no, now with hindsight, it was the only possible result.

        Life is even harder when you’re suffering from a mental illness as well.

        That would be so very kind, why is it that the people with the biggest hearts never get the recognition they deserve? People, like you and others like you, tend to be ignored, until its too late. You truly give hope to the human race. Thank you for becoming a friend, if you’d like to know more about me (as you previously mentioned you would) drop me an email to and I’ll answer all of your questions.

    Marriage, we commit for the rest of our lives,… yet sometimes go into it with eyes wide open, but sadly blinded to reality… Wonderfully sad, Sweet Willow.. hugs to you… xPenx
