Broken vow

tumblr_mignp9DDyq1rtxj3eo1_500While our hearts ache with desire
this passion we must never share
long ago you made a sacred vow
to honor a love now cold and bare

This secret yearning is forbidden
happily ever after cannot be ours
though clearly pure this is neither
in the cards or written in the stars

Try not to cry as we say goodbye
our story belongs now to eternity
angels and poets will weep for us
and the greatest love to never be
