Waking up this morning
As if I am in a Shakespearean play
In a cold sweat
Mind in a tizzy
Feeling like Kunta looking for kizzy
A part of my heart is missing
Must find that puzzle piece
So that I may be whole
For what is life without
A heartbeat
And what is a man
Without the "wo"
So I'm in search
For thee my queen
But unlike Shakespeare
We won't end in tragedy
For this Romeo
Shall have his Juliet
And she shall never forget
That before either of us
Were born
We met
But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east and Juliet is the sun
And you are that sun that shines in my midnight
Illuminating
The darkness
That wants to swallow me
But you won't allow it
And so you have fixed
Yourself
Into my heart
That empty space
Forever chasing away
The darkness
And given me inspiration to write
Feeling your voice moving over me
Like satin sheets
Embracing me at bedtime
Enrapturing
And captivating
My mind body and soul
And you will never have to ask
Romeo o Romeo where for art thou Romeo
Because I am right where I have always been
A part of you
And I'm not going anywhere
The reason I'm not going anywhere
Is because
When I did leave for a moment
It felt as if an eternity had passed
And I suffered from cardiac arrest
Because I was missing you
The missing piece of my heart
So no
I'm here to stay
Because your love is a love
That feeds my soul
Allowing me to truly live
My Juliet
When our paths crossed
For the first time
My heart kissed yours
Yet you knew not it was me
And
It was at that moment
That I was no longer a Montague
Or you a Capulet
But we became
Love itself
Call me but love, and I'll be new baptized;
Henceforth I never will be Romeo
So you see when we became love
We were no longer Romeo or Juliet
But we are so much more
Not simply star crossed lovers
But we are lovers that crosses the stars
We are lovers
Who have closed the world out
And let each other in
We are lovers
Who have loved countless times in the night
Lovers who has invaded each other dreams at twilight
Lovers who knows what it's like
To be tortured
Because of that missing piece
But now we both have been found
And do I dare declare my thoughts
My desires
My dreams
Yes my Juliet
I do
For I only have one life to live
And to deny
This love
Is to deny life itself
And O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?
And deny your truth
Or will you my Juliet
Finally join your heart to mine
Or will you tell me as you have before
Good night, good night! parting is such
sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow
However my response to you
Is that tomorrow is here today.

WOW. What a thing of beauty!
This is absolutely gorgeous!
I felt every word and tasted every line.
Your Juliet is a blessed woman.

What ever you've done, you can no longer post to the kitchen table
It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
