If Anthony hadn't loved
in that last second,
maybe he would have
and he would have won
the war within him,
but he had loved her
more than ever
exactly in that second
that had driven him
Therefore, he fell into death,
She should have been
his widow to suffer
and to understand
what real love means,
because her affair of the heart
was too pathetic
to have control over
the destiny of history.
Poem by Marieta Maglas
One of the William Shakespeare tragic work is revisited by your poetic heart in a very interesting view point............
in order to understand from her suffering what means real love. Because her love was insufficient to fight against the destiny of history.......love should beunderstood by either of party as it stands unique in the history.. this reminds me of love pirncee edward who allowed throne to pass away for love....very good writeand appealing.....10 read nine...message... terrorial integrity

Your poem surely has a Shakespearean gravitas. In Shakespeare's play Antony abandons politics, honor (well, a militarist's view of honor) , and power to pass Cleopatra'a repeated tests of love. At one point, he admits she has taken him to the very heart of loss, but there he finds the heart of love too. After a century + of destructive warfare I believe we are ready to give this vision of love our advocacy, and not the vision of war and desolation.
