"Wherefore Art Thou?"

Wherefore art thou, my Romeo?
I've been waiting such a long, long time.
Have you forgotten me?
For you were never mine.
The odds are against us.
Everything and everyone keeping us apart.
But I will remain your Juliet,
for to you belongs my heart.
I'll wait here on my balcony,
for you to come and save me.
I'll wait here till morning,
till the sun I do see.
And I'll be back waiting for you,
every nightfall,
searching in the distance,
listening for your call.
"Wherefore art thou, my Juliet?"
is what you will ask.
And I'll say, "Right here, my love."
With poison in flask.

Why, such is love's transgression.

Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast,

Which thou wilt propagate, to have it prest

With more of thine: this love that thou hast shown

Doth add more grief to too much of mine own.

Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;

Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes;

Being vex'd a sea nourish'd with lovers' tears:

What is it else? a madness most discreet,

A choking gall and a preserving sweet.
