Breaking the Rule

the sacred act of love
intimacy hidden in
dark shrouds of passion
a chore to endure
by word of marriage law
after solemn vow
the shaming of love
perversion of pure feeling
the shame is on them
words softly spoken
whisper ‘I love you’ as lips
unite in a kiss
no pausing for thought
love; the one truth that matters
it’s never a crime

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
