Forever Is Too Far

written by: Soulla Christodoulou

@schristodoulou2

 

Wrapped in cool silk sheets
Bodies entwined in each other
Rhythmic hearts, a united pulse beats
Breathing in, a calming smother

Hot sunbeams through the window
Halo bright around her head
The devil’s desire twisting low
Perfumed emotions torn to shreds

How can this be angel fire?
A dangerous longing, inky hunger
Lust and passion secret desire
Torment, affliction of a girl younger

Seduction forbidden and dark
Infatuation, a wondrous burning, aching joy
The truth torments hit cold, stark
An affaire de coeur never her ploy

Laced with shattered tomorrows
A torment unavoidable, too real
Tinged with red adulteress clothes
Unbridled ecstasy the devil’s seal

She knows that forever is too far
Her love a dream to shake awake
Always and never the same are
To walk away, lies amends make

Hauntingly she exists in her world
Unbridled ecstasy deception gone
Dripping scent, heartfelt words curled
His love a gaping bleeding wound torn

Born in London to Greek Cypriot parents Soulla Christodoulou spent much of her childhood living carefree days full of family, school and friends. She was the first in her family to go to university and studied BA Hotel & Catering Management at Portsmouth University. Years later, after having a family of her own she studied again at Middlesex University and has a PGCE in Business Studies and an MA in Education.
When asked, she will tell you she has always, somewhere on a subconscious level, wanted to write and her life’s experiences both personal and professional have played a huge part in bringing her to where she was always meant to be; writing books and drinking lots of cinnamon and clove tea!
She also has a poetry collection, Sunshine after Rain, published on Amazon and is releasing her second novel, The Summer Will Come in March 2018.
