Poem - Juliet

I know several Juliets. Each is incredibly unique, with their own struggles and potential. Perhaps we are all Juliets.


Juliet

Her name is only Juliet
new to the world yet old at heart
an echo of who I could have been
reminder by a phantom mirror
she fills my life with mystery
as questions echo through my mind

daughter of a thousand nights
where will you go when this is through?
a world awaits beyond the gates
the tomb your home too long these days
years have passed lost in your mind
now comes your time to depart

sister to the silver moon
what will you find when we part?
something different from the books
embraced while dread filled the air
moving pictures betrayed the truth
even while they were a fair retreat

mother to the revealed stars
what will you share with the world?
your children long to breathe the air
artistry born on the muses' wings
presentation to move the world
revelation of the no longer lost

how will I connect to my friend
my family by blood removed?
she fills my life with circumstance
as I witness prelude's edge
in time they will unwind
Juliet born to answer all.
