Romeo and Juliet Revised

We could have been a love story;

as great as Romeo and Juliet [without the suicide,

naturally] Instead you chose to lie, steal, and cheat me.

So let’s pretend, just for a moment,

that we did turn out like them.

This time however, when Juliet wakes,

from her poisoned sleep,

To find Romeo in a pool of his own blood;

relief floods her body, not dread.

A weight lifts off her shoulders, and she knows no pain.

She is free! Free from a life tied to a man

she may have loved [she’s not really sure, it all happened

so fast] but in time she may have grown to hate.
