"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?" John Lennon


Something forbidden.
A thing covered by shadows
and given the name “sinful.”
What really lies
beneath those shadows?
Could it be something
so natural and beautiful
that those who
cannot experience it
destroy it for everyone else?
Only the wild spirits
that dare to dream
know the power of “sin.”
A letter brands those spirits
that know the truth beneath sin,
but they never break,
no matter how another
stomps upon them
for something a bitter old man
was to cruel to be given.
Those without hearts
despise those who
may have what they cannot-
PASSION
and
LOVE

I realize that it's not really good. I wrote it on a whim while I was reading The Scarlet Letter.
