"This is a poem about a man who feels as though he has to hide himself and his feelings from everyone around him he soon realizes that he doesn’t have to feel ashamed of love."


In the city streets where danger resides,

There's a gangster with a heart that he just can't hide

He's got a tough exterior but inside he feels soft

Falling for a love that makes him feel lost

He's a gangster in love caught in a spell

Fighting for his love ready to raise hell

In the midst of chaos he found his peace


A gangster in love his heart released

He walks the line between darkness and light

But love's got him questioning

What's wrong and what's right

He's got a reputation feared by many

But love's got him acting all sweet and plenty

He's got a heart of gold beneath that tough façade

Protecting his love he's willing to break

Any odds In a world of violence he yearns for affection

A gangster in love defying all expectations

He's a gangster in love caught in a spell

Fighting for his love ready to raise hell

In the midst of chaos he found his peace


A gangster in love his heart released.
