In those dark eyes I see the reflection of me
His raven hair and dark skin are so blinding
his smile is forbidden
for he is young-only a moment ago I forgot
I went blank
He swept me off my feet so high I could not come back down, or maybe I did not want to
I am frozen with fear for he has gripped my heart with a clutch that binds to me forever
I do not dare make him let go, I want this
I know I cant have him, for you see he is forbidden to me.
He has me against the wall with nowhere to go but into his arms
Will I choose him, I have no choice, for I have been chosen.
