“thus with a kiss I die.” ― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
Lo! Love’s muted tone thus shades of virginal white
and magnanimous red; laced with endless features
of both calm and dread. Bright with the blood these
lovers have shed; death drifts on with servile breath.
Lo! such potent delights have such vagarious ends;
perhaps virtue is then for youth to spend. Oh pulse
and soul with fervour kiss; bade reminisce joy afore
its grief. Let the world thus know, only fools believe
Give love your soft and perpetual sigh;
Beneath thus deepening shades of sky.
