Oh Romeo

Falling in love with a fantasy making up the man of my dreams Juliet standing on the balcony awaiting Romeo & the tragedy

not knowing what tomorrow holds as I hold a rose close to my chest and lay there in a white lace dress putting the power of true love to the test

in my head, I am on a sandy beach the sound of waves crashing onto the shore I wake suddenly, confused and besieged my Romeo’s cold cadaver laying on the floor

I loved him, but only for a moment we are both so young our lives feel unimportant I grab the dagger, drill it into my body already numb I don’t feel a thing Actually, begin to enjoy the pain

laying there in utter silence my love laying pale beside me no reason to feel afraid I close my eyes accept my fate

unaware Juliet was making a terrible mistake for a man, she didn’t even know love is blind people say & youth is wasted on the young

looking back at that terrible day two star-crossed lovers take their lives tragedy could have been avoided if their love didn’t start and end with lies
