Star-crossed lovers

black-and-white-photography-by-Benoit-Courti-4

We’re star-cross’d lovers, long

Our doom has been foretold

And broken nights askance,

Their favour will withhold.

So should our paths entwine,

Pray you abscond their plea.

Pursue another’s love,

From fortune’s gaol flee.

And when your dreams are laced

With remnants of my scent

Find solace in her touch

Let absent bliss fragment.
