Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before
--Edgar Allan Poe.

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
--Edgar Allan Poe

Deep Down in sorrows row
Where no hope seems to grow
She found the one
Who meant more to her than the sun
Their families were in a fight
They saw one another when he stowed away at night
They met each other at a ball
When he caught her eye she would fall
Into a dream of love at first sight
‘Twas Romeos heart she stole that night
Of their love they were sure
Even through the hardships they would endure
Through it all the love they carried
Made it easier for them to get married
They never thought it would have led
To exile and loved ones dead
Juliet and the friar made a plot
Their lives were at stake if they were caught
Only two actually knew what was going on
This all happened while Romeo was gone
The friar made a potion to slow the heart
All Juliet had to do was drink it to play her part
Romeo never received the letter he was meant to
He didn’t know what he had to do
So he was hasty and went on ahead
Only to find his dear Juliet was dead
There’s a poison he would take
When he found she wouldn’t wake
Romeos death would end her life
For what she did was use his knife
The family feud so there ends
And they would all finally make amends.
