Forbidden Love


They say Muse's "Resistance" is about forbidden love - a love that should be a secret or lest the lovers' world will start tumbling down, a love nobody else would comprehend except these two souls, where every moment is priceless for this meeting would be their last. It is too risky yet denying it would cost their sanity for the rest of their life.

"The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread"
~ Mother Teresa

Forbidden love is all about living for that very moment. So, if it is too complicated, why do they continue and give hopes to each other, wishfully thinking things will get better one fine day because they stick to their love?

The battle we are fighting these days are like the forbidden love. People at large could feel the romanticism of it but to continue living, love just ain't enough to most people. Too bad, these people have been 'programmed' to ask this before they plunge into love - "What's in it for me? I take cash and credit, title and special interest only. No hardship please".

"There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is God's finger on man's shoulder" ~ Charles Morgan

For those who are in love, have been in love or perhaps, appreciate the idea of love, allow me to ask you these simple questions: -

1. Is it sinful to treat to another human beings, even if they are of different races, creeds and lifestyles, with kindness, respect and dignity?

2. Is it unjust to do something right?

3. Is it unfair to be fair?

4. Is it wrong to be right?

5. It is too painful to apologise when we did wrong?

6. Is it pathetic to be empathic?

7. Is it irrelevant to be relevant?

8. Is it unthinkable to be able to think and be thoughtful?

9. Is it nonsense to make sense and apply our senses?

10. Is it too much to ask for love of this "Tanah Tumpahnya Darahku" and its people that we would care for them like "menatang minyak yang penuh"?

If you still think we are crazy fighting for the love of this country, well, "when love is not madness, it is not love" (Pedro Calderon de la Barca). Even Queen thinks so too in their "Crazy Little Thing Called Love".

Love makes time pass; time makes love pass.
True love stories never have endings.
And who being loved is poor?

Our life today is not a dress rehearsal. We only get to play one round....so live your life with no excuses, love with no regrets.
You have a nice day and keep a song in your heart, Lee.

Forbidden love, like fruit, is good for relieving constipation.

In the same vein, tanahair. Constipated with wrongs, injustices, quadruple standards, misery, stupidity, lunacy.

Forbidden by whom? Only "society" forbids and blames it all on God. The only issue I have with passionate love is that it can be seriously inconvenient :-)

Dearest Uncle Lee

I am loved thus I am alive. Being impulsive, I hate 'rehearsal' and that could cause me some real disappointment but i love every single moment spent in love. Phew! I'm glad you share those words with me. Merci!

Love is great indeed, even if it's forbidden. I like the way you likenedf forbidden love to fruits. I guess that love wont be that forbidden if we have more 'fibres' and 'muscles' in our system. Thank you for jotting down your opinion here.

Hello Antares,
How true! It's the society and that is why I asked those simple questions so they could pull some string in the heart of our society and make them realise they have to wake up,let the love runs through their system and do something worthwhile while they still can. Seriously inconvenient? No pain, no gain :)
