(un)like romeo and juliet

by Christel Crews

paths destined,
a higher source working

fatality in the making

leaving her,
no dagger for the taking


Author's Note: so, i found a t-shirt i had not worn in a long time and it has "star-crossed lovers" written across the front.. and as i walked to class today, this came to me.. i was thinking along the lines of snap-shots... if that makes sense

Well, Romeo and Juliet is one of my favorites and I think each word in this piece is so perfectly placed. You've really captured the essence of their relationship in so short a poem. I enjoyed this very much.

fatality in the making"

Ooooh, Christel! —this is divine comedy and tragedy in six brilliantly place words!!!

Christel, a very clear snapshot it is. Relevant not only to lovers of the past, but the present. Maybe you should find more teeshirts. ;-) Sometimes our best inspiration comes when we least expect the muse to visit us.

this is a great piece...I like the 2 breaks, keeping the imagery fresh but focused, intermitently revealed in pulses or snapshots...I like how the stanzas harmonize as flashes that together build into the climax of the Shakespearian tale...nice read, peace, *jewels*

This is awesome... I can definitely understand this being snapshots. Isn't it wonderful, the things that crawl through our brains sometimes?
