"Your mind fights the battles, but your heart wins the war." -Liz Ruth

'Twas not far in the greatest past,
lived two families, three civil brawls last.
While thither, it was fate that thou met.

It was the greatest story two loves hath made,
for it was in Verona where they both have stayed.
At the ball, under the masks, incognito they are.

Thus foe families, their love was forbidden.
Behind beauty and charm their feelings were hidden.
Both figures are star- crossed and young.

On the balustrade the mood was set,
but yet one knew of his untimely death.
It was their love that brought them to rest.

For on the day they lived and passed,
they knew their love would never last.
They were taken into a piece by Will.

The author's comments:
This poem is based on the old, famous Shakespear play "Romeo and Juliet." At the end, it says, "They were taken into a piece by Will," this means that are in a written piece (not peace) by WILLiam Shakespear. Understandable? I hope you enjoyed it.
