A happy Ever After


They both loved one another. None had the strength to live without the other.
But the dictates of the society ruled out a happily ever after for them.
And so they thought about meeting for one last time that day.
But when the time for goodbyes came, their intertwined bodies would not let go.
…………
The blood from their cuts had formed a pool. It was too late to save them.
Or was it really late???
For their souls were rejoicing in land where love ruled ... With a clear heart and clean conscience … they had let go of their lives.

  1. Wonderfully written. The forbidden love reminds me a bit of Romeo and Juliet.

  2. Heartbreaking. At least they are "free" ... still. So sad. Well done.

  7. Absolutely tragic, but love is a beautiful thing. Something everyone deserves and should be able to express freely. A forbidden, and hidden, love is so romantically beautiful and so fundamentally sad at the same time. Great job!

  9. So sad to read but they're together forever in the end and that's the real meaning of happy ever after.

  11. How very Shakesperean. And were they really lost indeed. Perhaps their families made up like the Montagues and Capulets.

  12. Like a few others, I immediately saw Romeo and Juliet here and I think if that was your inspiration, you really did it justice. This is lovely piece. Thanks for linking up and see you on the weekend

    1. Thank you for encouraging me. Truthfully, Romeo and Juliet came to mind only when readers saw it. But it is a great compliment for this short piece that I have written. Thank you so much.
