My sonnetized version of the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet
Romeo & Juilet

I loved you from the first I saw your eyes –
I knew the plans my parents made were wrong.
β€˜Twas you my heart would long for – our demise
Was set in stone by feuds fought way too long.

We ran away in secret to be wed –
Our life of married bliss begun with gore.
Our final chance was this, the friar said
But even that was not to end the war.

Sublime - the song you sang to me in rhyme,
Your rhythm set the beating of my heart.
Our love had reached its pinnacle, its prime
Forever now immortalized in art.

β€œFor never was a story of more woe –
Than this of Juliet and Romeo.”1
