When Shakespeare Killed Love

When Shakespeare Killed Love

A Poem by TwoDaysTooLate


When you're there every day,
Trying to be seen,
And still they turn away,
Ruining your dream.
You do everything they ask of you,
Whenever they please,
You follow them around all day,
Even begging on your knees.
You imagine them in a boring class,
Finally telling you,
Those two little magic words,
'Honey, I do.'
You read Shakespeare in your English group,
Trying to make sense,
Of Romeo and Juliet and all the fights,
Without granting innocence.
This is a note to everyone,
Who's heart has a crack,
This is what it really feels like,
When they don't love you back.

The sentence: "You imagine them in a boring class, " doesn't seem to resonate with me.

Rest of the poem is nice.
