But What Does Juliet Think?

Poem By Meredith Fahey

Romeo- I would die for you.
Fingers tangled in tawny hair
Reflecting the morning sun
His head is heavy on my breast
I want to stay like this forever
How can you take him from me?

Romeo- I would die for you.
He has shown me the world
And we have never left this room.
Oh Verona, how could you betray us?
Sweet city, torn asunder
Brothers, mothers, fathers, lovers

Romeo- I would die for you.
Passion has ebbed
Leaving only fear in its wake
Still he is beautiful, sleeping, dreaming
Ravaged by the forgotten blood lust
That is the heart of my torment

Romeo- I would die for you.
He awakens
And my soul takes flight
Phaeton- challenging the rise of the sun
Not yet, it is too soon
I need more time

Romeo- I would die for you.
I feel it, death in the last
Of his kisses
One night to know each other
An eternity to be apart
Kill me now.

Goddess Of Bedhead

If I went to bed with you
Would I find you a god in the morning
Or the ghost of some late night regret?
What would I be to you?

Rabbit Hole

I tumble into your heart,
And lay sprawling, panting, catching my breath in this strange place,
This exotic geography of lips and kisses and laughter
I take a moment to look around, this place I've never been before, love.

Peter Pan

You are a constellation in my night sky
Guiding me home
Straight from the North Star
Until morning


I am broken
I am shades of darkness
Filtered through your pain

Sea Of Love

Tides of this lust
Sent crashing into bodies
Into pools of sex
Animals, demons, angels, fish


I make love to you in this place out of time
Where I am not scared of you discovering me beneath the skin
We make ripples in the fabric of time as we explore and cry out
Tearing down the walls of reality and fantasy
