O Romeo,
You fell in love at such young age,
And even sooner you left her,
Separated by death,
Yet you remained in our hearts,
As Juliet's Romeo,
For the choice you made,
And it was to end your life,
The life without Juliet,
The life you feared the most.
I have always wanted to write something with "Romeo's Juliet"
Of two juveniles engrossed each other's hearts.
Where therefore thee an exquisite love awaits,
The velocity of the winds went across and mold a grandeur flow
With the world that's against their tranquil love,
A ravishing tragic begins.

Youngsters who thee behold charm and ethereal presence,
Who seek of pure love in such of an innocence.
The total madness of the air entered their silent souls,
The flesh of faith remarked the comprising truth.
The pleasure of no grandiloquence but with nothing to forestall.

Stared at the windows of their souls,
And a flamboyant heartbeat was born.
Of thousand nights that detained two lovers,
Shallow and deep words were uttered before.
No one can cease their hearts all alone.

Oh love, not eradicated by the broken winds and fiery wounds,
An intense merge of faith of thee I know was true indeed.
To love showed transparency of the world they could not know.
How are they supposed to pass these through?
And of a hombre who took his best all along and will always prove.

Who knows of their love that exists?
Exists in a cloistered world where no one shall deplete
Neither of them was a catalyst and both just cherished memories.
No art of atrocity was privileged.
An unmitigatedly deprived love was opt to be conquered.

To the cycle of this tragic love,
Made a quest of a lifetime where no one broke the chains of thee.
With blood, sweat, and tears,
Of galaxies they thought would collapse beneath the scarcely theme.
'Till death do they part.

Their souls were dead right before their ***** eyes have seen,
The immersed blood of vengeance remained at the state of a deafening silence,
The living ghosts crashed their nightmares and killed themselves because of an intense love they always prevail.
Now one day, beside the heaven they seek
Death brought them back together and in the name of love their fate was written in their blood forever.

Romeo, can't you see?
She doesn't deserve you d̶o̶ ̶I̶?̶
She doesn't deserve how you replay your memories of her:
How her lips felt upon yours
The way the sound of her laughter echoes e̶c̶h̶o̶e̶s̶ e̶c̶h̶o̶e̶s̶ e̶c̶h̶o̶e̶s̶
The way her hand fits yours
How your world revolved around her
Stop, she isn't yours anymore

Romeo, can't you see?
She took a part of you when she left
Leaving behind shattered pieces of your barely beating heart
Can't you see?
She is the epitome of a lie
Toxic that takes over the blood in your veins

Romeo, can't you see?
You're killing me
Your words like shattered glass upon my bleeding heart
Your doubts and insecurities, the sight of your misery, torturing me
You are more than enough
You deserve more m̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶n̶ ̶I̶ ̶c̶a̶n̶ ̶g̶i̶v̶e̶
Maybe love wasn't meant for me but it was for you
M̶y̶ ̶h̶e̶a̶r̶t̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶r̶s̶

Romeo, can't you see?
How mesmerizing your smile is
How it would light up the whole universe and you wouldn't even notice
How the sound of my name rolls off your tongue like honey
How I feel the entire zoo in my stomach with just one look
How much you're affecting me
Can't you see how madly in love I am?
C̶a̶n̶’̶t̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶ ̶m̶e̶?̶

Romeo, can't you see?
I̶’̶d̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶J̶u̶l̶i̶e̶t̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶a̶ ̶h̶e̶a̶r̶t̶b̶e̶a̶t̶.̶
Cringey but whatever.

I want to promise to love you, my lover,
I’ll never hurt you for the rest of my days
At this moment I will be your friend forever
I could tell you my love in many ways

But none of them are good enough for you
I will spend my days with the one I love
Because we are the perfect two
I will always be your elegant white dove.

I hope that we can grow old together
Our families may be enemies
But we could be like garlic and butter
When I am weak you are my remedy

With every beat of my heart,
I will love you till death due us part


I wanteth to gage to loveth thee, mine own lov'r,
I’ll nev'r did hurt thee f'r the rest of mine own days
At this moment I shall beest thy cousin f'rev'r
I couldst bid thee mine own loveth in many ways

But none of those folk art valorous enow f'r thee
I shall spendeth mine own days with the one i loveth
Because we art the p'rfect two
I shall at each moment beest thy elegant white dove.

I desire yond we can groweth fusty togeth'r
Our families may beest enemies
But we couldst beest liketh garlic and buttocks'r
At which hour I am weak thou art mine own remedy

With ev'ry did beat of mine own heart,
I shall loveth thee till death due us parteth

Juliet woke up with a broken heart, her skin was pale and her eyes were dark.

Her bed was filled with her cries from the night, she fell asleep with no one by her side.

Romeo woke up with a smile on his face, he had pockets of freedom for himself to embrace.

His bed was filled with hopes and lies, it's gonna take some time to realize.

They were too young to settle down,
Just jilted lovers in a jilted town,
It's a shame 'cause he's older now,
but she's moved away.

Juliet woke up with a new attitude, she thought it's time that things improve.

She took a walk into town that night, she found some love in a strangers eyes.

Romeo woke up with a strong headache, he realized that *** and love were fake.

He wanted to go back to Juliet, he tried for gold but she couldn't forget.

They were too young to settle down,
Just jilted lovers in a jilted town,
It's a shame 'cause he's older now,
but she's moved away.
Twist on the story of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo left Juliet thinking he was missing out on his freedom, only to realize they were meant to be. He blames it on being young, and tried to convince her that he's older now. But it's too late, she's "moved away" (moved on.)
Balcony perch,
Romeo's known role reversed,
Juliet below in harmonious search,
What's a name really worth?
vanitas Jul 10
I shall, in the name of mine fairest,
Oh, Juliet, sweetest and rarest
With a love so divine,
I promise we will be always be
Thy eyes like lilac lies,
For which a man nearly dies

Juliet, your Juliet.
I grew out of her.
She was all dreamy, and fabled.
She was brave enough to love you.
She was brave enough to be crumpled to shreds yet fake a smile flawlessly.
She grew on you.

Juliet, your Juliet.
I grew out of her.
She was graceful and too kind to be true.
She was the daisy of your garden, where flowers weren't just a few.
She loved sunshine as much as the misty moon.
She was ravishingly rhythmic. Forming melodies out of those midnight stars,
adding beats and verses to your mundane mornings.
Your Juliet, your Daisy, your sanguine Sestina
all of them. Yet, nothing better than a reverie.

Juliet, your Juliet.
I grew out of her.
She was all chirpy and consoling.
Solace was what made her.
Her love was fire, worth burning for.
At times, her eyes form glaciers,
arctic and numb.
At times, she feels worn out and ready to drop.
But, Juliet's audacious to hold on tight yet, taken down by you. Remember, she grew on you.

Juliet, your Juliet.
I grew out of her.
She was delicate but humorous.
Compassion knit her soul together.
You tell her, she is all you ever wanted and is grateful for.
But, the woman lying next to you hears the same.  

She was a writer and left you one.
Juliet, your Juliet.
Not anymore.
Peter Balkus May 29
Romeo didn't die,
he lives in me.
He loves his Juliet
as much as I love thee.
