Bonnie & Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde Movie
Bonnie and Clyde Movie

She lived for him

He was her one love

Doing anything for him

A star from up above

Two tragic lovers

Parker Barrow


Breaking dawn

Through the dim


He lived for her

She was his shining star

Lovely and bright

Outshining them all

A union all their own

Which they created together

She for him

He for her

A union unweathered

A loss the day

When it came to an end

Through steel

Fiery blaze

Silver bend

The lost lovers still

Holding hands

Amongst the wrath

Amongst the rage

Death beckoned

To them

They were finally


From their cage

They were a very fascinating couple--and still are today. Great poem. They were two that were probably meant to be together like soulmates or something similiar.

You know Caroline it must of been a wild ride. The movie romanticized what Bonnie and Clyde had. Loved your poem. Passing it on.

There is a lot of romanticism about the depression era gangsters and none moreso than Bonnie and Clyde because their lives can be interpreted as a tragic love story, as in the film version.

Pretty poem,

....old boy that I am - I was 9 years old when Arthur Penn's Bonnie and Clyde came out at the cinema - and I watched it again last summer, obviously as an adult, on a VHS tape, and the film still holds up very well today - and the film like your evocative poem is a classic in every way - thank you for writing this amazing variation of theme on this rather famous couple - lake erie time ontario canada and sending you warm wishes and good energy at 3:08am
