A/n: I just read Romeo and Juliet in English. I was inspired :D


If me be true,

And thine be lie,

Though'st encounter thy thought of death.

Therefore lying shall be nye.

With thy sins beholden,

Across thy place.

A payment be made,

With a promise of haste.

Canceling thine request of love,

By unity in thy next sun.

For one can not love another,

In a day that is only one.


So in case you were confused, this poem is about a man who tells another man a lie. The other man says the he must provide payment for his sins, and tells him he must give up true love and get married the next day to someone he doesn't love.
