write a poem, no less than four stanzas, no more than six describing a love that shouldn't be, couldn't be, but is. Chance meetings, ridiculous circumstances, and the like. It doesn't have to be hearts and roses. Use your imagination, or draw from your own experiences. Rhyming isn't necessary, and no extra consideration will be given for form. Just let the words flow freely, no restraints. I want imagery and emotion. Extra consideration for originality.

Grammar issues will be overlooked so long as the message is clear.
