The Daily Prompt – Fierce!

Their love was hotter than the sun

Their laughter a thunderous roar

During their frenzied moments

A love tango so fierce

It burned with careless passion

Like the forest fire razing in anger

They fanned the embers of their affection

With compassion, kindness and hope

But life is a tricky adventure

And love a bitter-sweet pill

The hurt pierced through their hearts

Their happiness diminished by sharp pains

They groan in flinching shock

As their love suffered a rude twist

Alas! They were cousins

A truth too bitter to swallow

A crushing reality to follow

This fatal blow

Turned a blissful love

To a tortuous life

A scandalous mockery

The cruel fate of two lovers

Stuck away in the diaspora

But tradition traced them

Back to their ancestry


In response to the Daily Prompt – Fierce.

Peace and Love!

    1. Yes. Don’t know much about other cultures but from where I come from, we’ve got some traditions that must be obeyed by the people… and this post was a result of a recent case I heard. Sad story for a book.
