1. Love me or hate me, both are in my favor..If you love me, I'll always be in your heart..If you hate me, I'll always be in your mind -Shakespeare.

Beauty and passion
Lust in a graceful fashion
Two bodies entwined
On a starlit night
While the moon begins to shine

Never fear
This couple shall steer
Time back into its place
For only in their dream
Shall their bodies be one

Their eyes now wide
Light flashes their side
As they awake from a deep slumber
And their happiness blurs to sorrow
They stare into the mirror foreshadowing doom

The faces they wear
Are not allowed to care
For their significant other
And if they do
The country shall fall into despair

The king stands in gloom
The queen wishing for her groom
Two nations fighting for an eternity
And the bloodshed spilled on each other’s hands
Dyes the deep seas red

This is amazing. Like wow. I love the symbolism and the wording. I personally was never a fan of Romeo and Juliet, but I loved how you described it. It made me have a different perspective on the characters. Great Job!
