"life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. it's about learning to dance in the rain"


For you and I are past Cupid’s stage.

We have been through hell and back,
and have gotten lost in many different ways.
We have stumbled and we have fell,
to just get back up and fall once again.

“For you and I are past our dancing days.”

We have chased one another while the other was hiding,
and yelled at the other while one cried.
We have screamed and screamed
to just be ignored.

For you and I are past our fantasized days.

Nevertheless, we are learning
and are still utterly in love.

For you and I are past those days,

and into ones that we start off even stronger than ever before.


The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by the quote, "For you and I are past our dancing days," by William Shakespeare from Romeo and Juliet, Act 1, Scene 5. I hope people can remember love takes work, like anything else, to make it function properly.
