Beyond the World of Loving Romeo and Juliet

Updated on October 16, 2011

We are taught never to shed tears. For to shed tears means that the body has been defeated by emotion. And, to us, that simple act of crying proves, without que

If only you can see my tears -_-

I awaken saying I have lost the capacity to love, yet dying

For someone to call me in and hold me tight, yearning

For him to wipe my tears

Chasing away my deadliest fears

Yet I vowed never to be subdued by trivial emotion

To the world of hurdles, love, and heart abduction

Yet I remain standing tall, saying I need no affection

Nothing to cure me from my self induced mutilation

What need is it if I claim each my heart and soul a coward

For I wish and hope, but never taking the step forward

If it is that specific heart that loves that I lack

As I have ditched emotions, never to looked back

Yet again sometimes I sulk in that turbulent world of mine

Living and lying at the same time in demise claiming to be fine

Yet in the coldest nights I wish you belonged within my reality

Although my heart isn’t ready to make that leap. And so sanity

Claims that the heart must not be conquered even by the bravest

Knight in shining armor, for metal rusts, and love burns the heaviest

And so I walk with the shadow I claim as a soul mate

Never being owned, engaged or claiming my fate

For my soul, though alone will resonate

Way beyond the world of loving Romeo and Juliet

      Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring wreitrs? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

      We are taught never to shed tears. For to shed tears means that the body has been defeated by emotion. And, to us, that simple act of crying proves, without question, that the existence of emotion is nothing but a burden :D:D

      But NIkki i think you are right, yet sometimes i wish to numb all those feelings you feel, hoping that it would make things better -_-

      Its ok to cry sometimes. it shows we are still human. we are still kind and caring decent people. not heartless. yes it can show our weakness, our vulnerable side. but i think emotions are what makes us our strongest.

      Such sweet, raw sorrow. Her heart is torn, bleeding, yet to proud to show.

      Greatness again Uriel.

      Sometimes,

      I feel the same way...

      But then I realized,

      It is what we think which created us,

      So I tried to stop thinking about it

      Replaced all with happy thought.

      It works,

      In so many times,

      But still,

      Deep inside I know

      The loneliness still waiting in the dark

      Ready to lure my soul

      And hold me back from this life

      Simply by saying:

      "This is what you called life?"

      Then I will be dance

      Till the end,

      With eternal friend;

      Named pain.

      I miss you so much, Sis.I wish I have more time to read and write again like before.
