Soulbound



~~~

If Romeo had known

The death would be his own

Would he have regret

Loving his Juliet

~~~

If love had not made him blind

That she would follow him in kind

Would he have willing let go

To keep it from being so

~~~

If good counsel be heard

Could true love be deferred

Would he choose to leave

Her life given in reprieve

~~~

Or was his fate undeniable

His love un-survivable

Was it always meant to be this

Forsaken by the very first kiss

~~~

His love unbound by time

Drawn as a circle, not a line

His love would stay the test

In this lifetime and the next

~~~

    This is absolutely beautiful, Brad! ๐Ÿ˜ I don’t think Romeo would regret anything that led him to his Juliette. They are so connected, not even death could keep them a part. Your words make me swoon. ๐Ÿ˜

    your question posed so beautifully. I would think he would do it all over again just to have been with her, even if their time was short

        Itโ€™s my pleasure! Exactly! Your title said it all. This round of chemoโ€™s side effects are a bit more pronounced~some more challenges that are keeping me from
        Being as productive. Chemo brain fog is real (which doesnโ€™t help my โ€œnormalโ€ brain that struggles at times, lol). The words are in my heart โค๏ธ, I just canโ€™t always get them out. But I have hope and am still winning! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿฅฐ love and hugs, Brad!

  4. I believe that one can never regret true love, no matter the cost, even knowing the cost beforehand.

    Lots of “what ifs” in life.

    What a lovely take on such a treasured romantic play and a love so special and dear. I think they would act the same over and over again. Their love such a rich love which ended so tragically. Your words are so lovely Brad. There is something to be said about one’s first love. I have never forgotten mine and the intensity of it. It is a treat to read your words again. Big hugs, Jonikins
