Mimi-Mona Poetry: Dying Stars — Killing Romeo and Juliet

It ain’t over
he said; she’s just humming

What’s been happening
to our world when
all the world’s a stage
in a state of confused

Who can hear the echo
of the star-crossed lovers
matching the tattoo
of their beating hearts

Plagued with dirty dances
and sensual,
more often than not,
racy scenes of love 
and lust
that surrounded us

Ultimately consumed by love
under the Pont des Arts,
that pedestrian bridge
that crosses the River Seine,
where I placed my perfume bottle
above all others
left by countless lovers

We’d touched like stars
through the distance
through the darkness

both shining
both already

before the song ended
