©Dying Stars — Killing Romeo and Juliet

killing romeo

It ain’t over

he said; she’s just humming

What’s been happening

to our world when

all the world’s a stage

in a state of confused

dialogue

Who can hear the echo

of the star-crossed lovers

matching the tattoo

of their beating hearts

Plagued with dirty dances

and sensual,

more often than not,

racy scenes of love
and lust

that surrounded us

Ultimately consumed by love

under the Pont des Arts,

that pedestrian bridge

that crosses the River Seine,

where I placed my perfume bottle

above all others

left by countless lovers

We’d touched like stars

through the distance

through the darkness

both shining

both already

dead

before the song ended
