On a Day that was Forbidden

On a day in September

I was consumed

By desire

And profound indiscretion

Clouds moved in

To confound my thoughts

With unrestrained passion

And I danced with a prince

In a mist of purple rain

The scent lingers in my mind

As I cling to a memory

That I fear to unearth

From the unmarked grave

Of an unholy union

That once felt so sacred

I cried out his name

From the depths of my soul

He was so beautiful

And so was I

On that day oh so
