Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Cousins unwittingly fall in love.
"Forbidden Love" by BethShelby

There comes a time in life when nature wakes
and yearning youthful minds misunderstand.
Not knowing how to deal with these new aches,
a situation may arise unplanned.

Such was the case, as cousins became teens.
They didn’t understand what lay ahead.
Curiosity compelled them to find means
to take a route they should have feared to tread.
 
Like siblings, they had been; she trusted him.
Love was a thing they both knew couldn’t be.
They yielded to temptation on a whim,
to sail awhile on an uncharted sea.
 
Emotions compromised may break one’s heart.
The tears were bitter, when time came to part.
