Favorite Quote:
“I\'d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.”
Kurt Cobain

Hearts are meant for breaking
Upon true love they shatter like glass
Star-crossed shall never be
Without fatality

A kiss between bloodstained lips
Shall never prevail among young lovers
These lovely stories have brutal ends
With just one look, they all begin

Tragedy shall fall on those
Who are meant to be, but can’t
Their destiny they must obey
Somehow death will find a way

The certain falls upon a deathbed
Where intertwined corpses lay
No matter how many times you read it, you can’t deny
Romeo and Juliet will always die

The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, and all other stories of untold true love.
