Illegal Fireworks

By Felipe De La Rosa |





Fireworks flew over our roofs that night

A symphony of lights illuminated our paths


A magical moment between the two of us

Long roof top nights; endless rambles


What if they take me?

We settle down tomorrow mi amor


Our fear grew immense like the night sky that surrounded us

The only hope of light were the fireworks


Resembling our love,

Passion raging between the two,


Burning illegally in the open sky

Leaving trails of our hot fiery love


A shriek of lights burst through our dream world

Badges thrown in our faces


My heart sank,

My fear became reality


One more day was needed

Before my life was turned to I.C.E


Jointless,

My future vanished before me


Her ride to Cal interrupted

Future family of four evaporated


Who ever said loving was illegal?
