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.
‘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.
“For never was a story of more woe –
Than this of Juliet and Romeo.”1
