Defied By The Stars

She in the light of the stars,
He in the beam of the moon,
Star crossed lovers,
In June,

Of rose buds and bittersweet perfume,
Of broken nights,
Awake in lover’s qualm,
A feud which will last till the end of time,
In centuries past,

Whispered in the wind,
Romeo and Juliet,
Immodestly,
Balcony and marble arch,
She couldn’t be more beautiful,
Then the fine threads of her handkerchief,
Catching silver teardrops,
And,
Embroidered hearts,

Orchid walls, high,
A Capulet’s jail,
A wanton shackled,
Sleep dwelling,
Restless dawn,
A thousands goodbyes,
Kissing the lips of lovers,
Defied, by the stars.

  1. Powerful!

    A love poem for the ages and a generation.

    She in the light of the stars,
    He in the beam of the moon,
    Star crossed lovers,
    In June,

    These lines I can envision a two lovers facing each others light and moon.

    If the star and the moon one day kiss, hope will sprinkle down on earth and give people something beautiful to talk about. I love it! 🙂
