Rules and Boundaries I Don’t Understand

I felt connected with him

From the first kiss

The kiss that never should have happened.


I knew I wasn’t supposed to love him

Because it was wrong

Because that wasn’t our deal

Because I love another

Because I wear a ring

But I never understood how love could be wrong

Or bad

Or Inappropriate

I’ve always believed that love is always good.

I’ve learned that most don’t agree.

There are rules I’m told to follow

Boundaries I’m told I must not cross

Rules and boundaries that I don’t understand

But I must respect


I wanted to love him.

It’s not like it just happened and I was caught unaware

I saw it coming and I stepped forward to meet it

But it didn’t go far

It couldn’t go far

It was suffocated by the

Rules and the boundaries I don’t understand.
