"If music be the food of love, play on."

--William Shakespeare

You have taken every
Inch of me
Taken my life
My love
My everything

And because you have taken everything
And you are everything
You took you away from me too

And what
My dear
Is in a name?
That which we call a rose
By any other name
Would smell as sweet
But would it?
If we just so happened
To have different names
Instead of those which we have
Which are too similar for coincidence
Then we wouldn't be us
I wouldn't have shot you that dirty look in class
Wouldn't have looked back and fallen in love
And you never would have fallen back

But then came the heartache
Which I now so despise
And the tears soon followed suit
It was through those tears
That I realized why
Why we wouldn't ever work
Because we are not supposed to exist together
But can't exist apart

And so you took my pride
My dignity
My love
And you threw it in the fire of your constantly burning heart
Just to watch it burn
And you stuck around
Because you are my best friend
Because we have found each other
Against all odds or intentions
And can't ever fall apart again

I love you
And I just can't stop
