I'll Never Give Up You;

I'll Never Give Up You;

A Poem by crystallized illusions
"

Nick and James; The forbidden romance.

"
Never had I thought it would happen like this;
With all our secrets molded into one.
Never had I thought we'd turn into this;
I hope we never get caught.
Never had I thought we'd need to run like this;
I can't do this.. I'm done.
Never had I thought we'd end like this;
Both meeting our fate from a gun.
One shot, darling, it's the only way to go.
For what it's worth, I'll never let you loose.
My arms are the noose.
I love you, darling, can we run away?
Please, don't say no.
Never had I thought it would happen like this;
With all our secrets molded into one.
Never had I thought we'd turn into this;
I hope we never get caught.
Never had I thought we'd need to run like this;
I can't do this.. I'm done.
Never had I thought we'd end like this;
Both meeting our fate from a gun.
One shot, darling, it's the only way if we don't run.
My soldier, my captain, this will never be easy..
But, though I fuss, I scream, I cry;
Listen to me, please, when I say 
I wouldn't have it any other way. 
One day, they will listen;
One day, they will see;
But until then, it's only you dear;
You and me.
By the way, I love you, too;
Baby, I'll never give up you.
Never had I thought it would happen like this;
With all our secrets molded into one.
Never had I thought we'd turn into this;
I hope we never get caught.
Never had I thought we'd need to run like this;
I can't do this.. I'm done.
Never had I thought we'd end like this;
Both meeting our fate from a gun.
One shot, darling, it's the only way to go.
Never let me go, boy,
Don't leave me behind.
No matter what happens, boy,
Even if we long to rewind,
The outcome will never change.
Fate will never be far behind.
I'll taste the devil's tears,
I'll hold his hand;
I'll do whatever I need to, 
As long as I'll always have you.  
I'll keep quiet,
I'll keep it closed;
I'll not tell a soul,
But I fear that one day we'll pay the toll. 
Never had I thought we'd end like this;
Both meeting our fate from a gun.
One shot, darling, it's the only way to have fun.

Author's Note

crystallized illusions
Please review and let me know what you think! Be cruel, be honest.
--In case you'd like to know-- I wrote this about a homosexual couple in the army, during WWI.
Tis a crossover with War Horse & The Deer Hunter.
(Idea by The Beautiful Brat and I, lyrics written by me.)

p.s: Because I see a lot of people commenting on the fact that I wrote that this poem is about a homosexual couple; I wanted to say that I didn't add it to force your minds into what I was writing about, or anything of the sort, in any way. I simply wanted to state a little back story. I didn't think that it would be the main point of most of my reviews, nor had I intended for that to happen. It was just a little note I felt like adding is all!

It's beautiful. what was the gay soldier that had the following inscribed on his tombstone: They gave me a medal for killing a man, and a dishonorable discharge for loving one.
This reminds me of that, real, hitting at home. The only complaint I have is that its not as specific as to say that its two gay men. Other than that, keep it up and grace us with more of your writing.

I really enjoyed this. In my opinion, it described how real love will overlook all, even if it's negative. I wouldn't have known it was about two men unless I'd read your note, although it still read well to me even putting it into a heterosexual interpretation.

is the format significant to the actual writing?

I would have not gotten that it was focusing on WWII or a homosexual couple during that time if I didn't see your review. I feel that that is the least of its worries the poem reads so well even thinking of it as a heterosexual couple. It flowed so well. Keep up the great writing.
