Let’s, ​Humble Shakespeare.


To be mine

until the end of time

you will need to be

my partner in crime.

Through it all

by each other’s side

locals will call us

Bonnie and Clyde.

We will undeniably make

Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare

exhibit as a nigh parody

of his entire career.

When you are upset

I will shout in pain

for you and I are one

we are exactly the same.

When you hurt, I hurt

As you smile I rejoice,

I ask you to be with me

like fate ever gave us a choice.

She said “No”

meg and I biking“No”

Normally this would be the last response a man would want to hear after asking the age old question of, “… will you marry me?”

Only in this instance, she knew that he was only making a jest, of their conclusion on each others equivalent view of wedlock.

When there are too many factors and variables at play, it just doesn’t seem paramount.  Their lives are just fine as is.  Financially, emotionally and physically charming.  Why fix what is not broken?  When it fabricates a tenseness in conversation, trying to even muse momentarily… the who’s, what’s, when’s and how’s of “The perfect wedding day”, why would they even invest another second into the conception of holy matrimony?
