My Romeo
inspired by Baz Luhrmann's movie Romeo and Juliet

My crazy green met your warm hazel
it was love at first sight
your beautiness caught my gaze
did my heart love till now? forswear it sight!
for I ne'er saw true beauty till this night
only if I had known the true affair

we had danced away through many nights
you and your ways had me in a trance
you kiss by th' book
only took one look and I dreamt away

an ancient grudge break to a new mutiny,
where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

she was your Juliet and my best
the only thing I could fret
the new Juliet and you, my Romeo, were all
happy days, full of the joys of spring

I was full of greys
drowning in my own tears
my love is gone, whisked away
adored by another lover

o Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
you are here stuck in my thoughts, 
with my racing mind and pacing legs
my heart aches
o teach me how I should forget to think, 
how could I live without my Romeo?

my hands and heart are cold
my thoughts are gone
tracing the edges of the weapon of choice
o happy dagger!

low and behold
my love, my knight in shining armor
o Romeo, but it is now too late.
I'll lay with you, my dear Romeo in another life.

o Romeo,
look at you, your hands are not clean
your toxic love stole a life
made her take a knife straight to the heart

not even eighteen but
yet had just seen thirteen
haven't seen much life
but decided to see the light
young and beautiful taken away because
of love at first sight.

"An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, just imagine that it's going to launch you into something great." -Author unknown

Spring Time

By Jacquelyn Garcia-Estrada

The day is bright
The flowers bloom
The day seems right
Beeping cars zoom

Clouds come by
The day becomes dark
This is where I say bye
To a day at the park

The raindrops fall
The thunder roars
The tree tall
The wind slams the doors

A wonderful time
It’s Spring

Be Jeweled by Mila Barry
