a/n: William Shakespeare and Robert Greene were only used as metaphors in this poem.

- the day when -
ravens started to jump was the time I began wondering for I was
oblivious to the reason why they made me cry thus
betrothed to grief and longing and
evolving and even deteriorating painfully;
restless, uneasy, deprived, wanting to view
the irony of romanticism . . .

- over time, I learned -
giving up and passive submission
regardless of the strength of my will;
everlasting questions fill my psyche
eternally regretful and unforgivable yet
no, Shakespeare, I am not sorry, for our
endeavors had just been the same . . .
