Forbidden Love

Forbidden Love

written by: Lei Writses


I told the moon I love her,
and its fullness turned to eclipse

I told the stars I love her,
and their brightness slowly faded

I told the sea I love her,
and huge waves started to beat my back

I told the sun I love her,
and I received no sunshine but burns

I told the rain I love her,
and its splattered droplets drowned me in

I told the clouds I love her,
and it pictured no frame of glee

I told the wind I love her,
and it carried away my whispers

I told the world I love her,
and I was forbid to see her again

I told the rainbows I love her,
and it wiped away my bitter tears

And if I’ll tell my family that I love her,
loathed will I be and I’ll be pushed away

To love her deeply is a sin,
but what is not a sin anyway,
I have love of my gender,
I must repent; but God,
give me one more summer,
as I cannot break both of our hearts this winter.

Lei Writses

I was born in Cebu City, was raised in the municipality of Argao, and write under the Pseudonym 'Lei Writses'. The pen name should be 'Lei Writes', or 'Lei Scrittore' (which means 'She Writes') as I love the language Italian, but due to some typographical errors, I mistakenly typed 'Writses' instead of Writes. Soon enough, I started to love how it rolls in my tongue and that's how the history was made. Some people who graduated from secondary school have two options: to proceed to college or work to earn; I have three, and I chose to stay at home and write poems. I have been composing poems for nine years, starting from when I was ten years old. But, all of the poems I wrote then were washed off during the Hurricane Haiyan. Now, I have been able to compose 200 sonnets for 200 days straight, and am still working on another 165 to complete a promise to myself. I also wrote a number of short stories, villaneles, sestinas, and many other forms of poetry. Poetry, to me, is not just a hobby. It is by far the greatest love of my life, and I am more than happy to share my love for it with everyone, and inspire people from all walks of life.
