A sonnet I wrote for school while reading William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; this sonnet concerns them.
Met like stars whose galaxies pull adverse
Beneath one sky, love shied the cord
Which glances formed, scripted to life by verse;
Yet true brilliance bound could they afford?
Their names eternal which fortune ordained
And Fixed forever, plotted plight’s
Poisoned rancor, dosed to wither deigned
Romance, thus undone by the world’s cruel blights
Stars met without their fields unbalance all,
The sky cannot hold, as flames verge to meet.
Saturnine globes shall bar each burning ball;
Sent to orbit goes one in narrow feat.
When the tremulous cord fatally splits
Behold remnant sparks cross the sky in flits.
