The title is Shakespeare, and that is because when people think Shakespeare, they think Romeo and Juliet. The two are synchronized together in this day and age, as Rome and Juliet was his greatest work. Anyway, as much as I know it does not compare to the great play itself in any way, This is my take on it. I hope you enjoy reading it. By the way, you are the first to read the updated form of it, as the last time I put it up somewhere, it was much worse than this, still good, but not as good. I have completely redone it in parts and added new stuff, and touched it up a good deal, so this is what you get.

Lifted up by the hands of an angel
Your hands, touching, comforting
A goddess like you has only to ask of me
Anything you want and it is all for you
Perfect in your grace as I wallow in my stumbling
But you tell me that I'm perfect for you
The princess and the pauper
Forever divided by the lines of society
Where do we belong, if not together
Doomed to obscurity by those that whisper
A fatal chance has lead this dance
That brought us closer,
Seems like fate has lent a helping hand
And we find ourselves forever
On opposite sides of the road, forever damned
A family born to wealth, and you their heir
A family born to poverty and I, their slave
Forever at war, these two sides, unfair
Creating illusions of the things
They want us to be
Oh Romeo, you call,
Wherefore art thou
And I declare that we are
The sun and the moon, our hearts
Forever together in the sky above
Laughing and crying as
We share our deepest secrets
As those that would divide us devise
A way to hasten our loves demise
A fatal chance has lead this dance
And it's brought us closer
With that night of romance
And I hear the wind whisper
Even fate has lent it's helping hand
Though we find ourselves fighting
Fighting against the odds
The night is young, and so were we
I called out your name, but you did not answer me
The capulets are fighting the Montagues in the street
And I find treachery in this house of evil deeds
My beloved lies dead
Cold as the winter snows
Hair like a halo, adorning her fragile head
Lovely still as she was in life
Poison to her veins and to my heart
Oh Juliet, my love, I say this to you
If not in life are we to be together
Then death I choose
And with my hand I lift this dagger
This knife of foul evil and raise it high
Down into my chest, my very heart
I seek, for you, to end my life
But as my spirit rises up, and I look down
I have been betrayed, my beloved makes a sound
You were not dead at all
But their deceit to keep us apart
Tears at your bleeding heart
As you see what their wrath has wrought
And I watch further as I drift higher
You make the same decision as I
And the blood stained knife is raised once more
And your spirit meets mine in the sky
A fatal chance that lead our dance
Brought us closer than ever dreamt before
Within each other has true love been found
No longer do we fight the odds
And in our deaths some good is to be had
No longer do our families fight
That old feud is now forgot
As they see what their fighting has brought
Together forever, our destined love.
