Forbidden Attraction

Zings of little lightning strikes
Electrical flashes shining
Between you and I
Visible tension tightening
Air charged with this thing
That we can’t name
Grasp hold of or define
Through stolen glances
Denied moments
Feverish avoidance of eyes
The forbidden pull
Like gravity to the earth
We have no power to resist
How to avoid magnetic attraction
Others consider a sin?
Love who we love
Or die inside obediently
Shrouded in shame and secrecy
With this hanging over us?
