Youth & Love (35)

Shakespeare–
What love can a
not-quite-fourteen
fathom?
Why such passion?
Is there depth–
Tell me Romeo,

in your heart
When love you swore
to fair Juliet.

Shakespeare–
Did you give them depth?
or was it lust–
Fantasy?
Or was it a game
played by words,
Shaped by hearts,
unleashed–
A tide of careless thoughts?

Juliet
Fair lady fair,
If by “lady” one means
Miss,
or even something
much smaller than this.
Was it your age?
Was your life–
so confined by father’s name–
that set your heart ablaze
by one boy’s glance?

What love can one
so young of age

You knew

in Love’s
Tidal pool.
