And We Thought We Could Be Romeo and Juliet 6/27/06

and just like torn pages
from antique manuscripts
of tragic love stories
and suicidal couples,
you found it very easy
to break my heart since
playwrights and poets
will never get to stage
this murder you made of me

you were supposed to be
my romeo, and i, your juliet
but unlike their story,
our own tragedy was never
worth scribbling on paper

(our Act 1: OnceUponATime
ended so instantaneously, and
it never had succeeding acts
to follow it)
