I believe that this was one of my best poems. I hope that you all would enjoy reading it. :) It's a captivation of William Shekspear's work into my own reality and fiction.

Thou art’s shadow covering the light from me
Stuck in his words, aimless, and truly hopeless
Thy tears falling like thunder
Split up between mind and reason,
With frozen feelings, and flawless words
Let no word put asunder of old William
Unaware, numb & lost…for all words were already sacrificed
 
Like thorns blooming, did his face become
Hearing the news of his love faltering in the bed of death…
Hoping that this nightmare called life would soon end, for it’s pointless to go as far alone…
But alone he was, and for once, his own word, was his own dream and ideal…
Romeo, dying for Juliet, and the end of their perfect story of love and death…
 
He lost his love with her death…but his words remain supreme
Like Macbeth did he become, with no love, companion nor a friend to help carry the burden of life…
Too heavy, too sad, just about to fall dead…
 
Thou art’s shadow covering the light from me
Stuck in his words, aimless, and truly hopeless
Thy tears falling like thunder
I lost the guidance I had…Lost the dream I’ve owned for so long…
I care no more…I was about to lose it all
& just when all hope has seemed to vaporize
Did you come to finish me off…
Seeking nothing anymore…Like old sad William did I become…With no purpose but to replicate an ending
For life just a bending…
But deep inside, isn’t that what I truly want?
Leave me be…
& you’ll see, I’m not the same William he’s been
Nor the one that you thought you had seen…
Wait, like me…for an end about to approach us…
Just like…Old sad William.
