Romeo & Juliet

Their story foretells of true love's epitome,

Beginning in hatred and ending in tragedy.

To think, it all started with their parents' strife,

But the overall cost was the lovers' life.

Juliet was innocent, young and fair,

Romeo was depressed, finding love hard to bare.

When these two met, their worlds burst with hope,

But knowing they were enemies was difficult to cope.

It was hard to believe, but it was love at first sight.

It's unfortunate to think a poisoned kiss ended their nights.
