Reinventing Juliet

Love was proclaimed on sight by him
My physical being does so satisfy men
I felt like a star above transending beauty, loyalty, and love
But now I feel he loves too fast
I was not his first
and woe to be his last
Before me there was cousin 'Rosaline'
A Capulet with a romantic nature
I will be severe and Romeo will no longer be my lover
My heart no longer beats for him
Hardly am I Saint Adelaide who married her father's rival
My father threatened to disown me if I continued to love a Montague the great rival of the House of Capulet
He goes to make my role with a man
Blessed Wife? Beloved mother?
I pray to Saint Agnes of Assisi that Divine Intervention will guard me
that I should pick my love
A man loyal to our love and lives a life of virtue and sanctity
Eyes that are dark, a handsome man, educated, and have travelled throughout the land
All I know of love is rather adverse
I am heiress to the House of Capulet!
And my life will not be a tradgey!

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
