Juliet and Romeo
He looks at her like she’s something to prove
And I don’t.
He tell her to write the wrongs and bleed the rights
And I won’t.
He begs her to act, stand against them for herself
And I can’t.
His eyes stare hollow
I don’t believe in happy endings
He forces words into her face
Not for myself
Accusing her of betraying him
To yourself: I never lied
He ties letters together around her neck
I won’t be the one you want tonight
Until bitterness and passion flee
You never needed me
He crushes her lips in hopes of a reawakening
I’m not that little girl anymore
Curses as he carries away
I won’t let you take my hand
Dreams and wishes that once soared free
You won’t lead my heart again
Caged and sold for a last chance
We played out so poetically
He shuts his eyes and braces himself
You won’t find your salvation in me
The echo of her whispers carry over him
This isn’t what you want
He forces back his pain: It is.
You’re a fool.
I love you.

I just wanted to try this arena out~
I wrote this poem sometime around June and my creative writing class seemed to love it.
It started as a statement that I'm not who everyone wants me to be and it just developed on it's own from there.
