I am Y.J. Shore and I like to read. Sometimes, I write a little.
Rosaline and Her Poignant ‘Lover’: Romeo
A white rose shimmers against the night sky,
Oh Aphrodite, what a mockery!
Fulfilling the act of a foe rather an ally,
like Eris, the Goddess of roguery;
Faltering my forlorn fortune, oh!
With the blessed yet cursed arrow of Eros,
Love coursing in me like a tender rose;
My heart wanting this bittersweet love dose,
Ah, alas, the heaven laughs at my stars;
For Rosaline follows Hestia’s stride,
My heart bearing unfathomable scars,
Oh, how I wish she was my blushing bride!
Goddess of love, charm her heart with your girdle
for I will die from unrequited burden.
