Juliet

Posted: July 13, 2007 in Poems
O Juliet,
you will play no music for me?
for once bitten three times shy?
you only have for me
angelic hair and footsteps near my door
but I have the satisfaction
of knowing my love is pure.
 
This is because I see your face
as a reflection of purity
without the ripples and distortions
of shortcomings and discrepancy
but today I think you packed the car
for the last time and
no more footsteps will I hear!
 
I did ask you should give
the local boy a glance
but for another neighbourhood Romeo
she has chanced.
So I will not see her on the balcony again
nor call up or down.
I hope that she is happy
because on anyone else
true love will frown
 
dwk.

what do you think?
