Romeo's Goodbye

Tainted lovers leave Broken lies. From sorrow did our souls reply, To see upon this marital bed A prickly thorn upon its head. And I, With shirt,and shoes,and cap Do take those tender words right back. For intertwined we could never be A stitch on true love's tapestry. For hurried hearts Doth often hide Where lustful desires coincide. Now that the beast lay satisfied I fear my love for thee hath died. And all I pray thee take in stride With this my ultimate, Last goodbye.
