Juliet, Where Are You Hiding?

A Poem

Juliet, where are you hiding ?


This Romeo aint bleeding, he is but comfortably numb.

Sick & tired, uninspired as happily ever after never come.


Once upon a time...

A Kingdom, a Queen, a Throne...

Well it seems Prince Charming aint so damn charming...

For now he roams alone.


Juliet where are you hiding ? 

Anastasia are you just a dream ?

Maggie if I were your Angel... 

Would you fall to earth for me ?


Bella I want forever with you. 

I just cannot make out your face.

I used to believe in a love so true...

It was another time, another place.


Tell me are you out there ? 

In this real life do you exist ?

For I am a man of optimism...

I’ve never been a pessimist.


But 32 years walking this land...

I’ve yet to take my fair lady’s hand...

To fight the dragon, to save the day...

I play my part but am in the wrong play.


Juliet where are you hiding ? 

Anastasia are you just a dream ?

Maggie if I were your Angel... 

Would you fall to earth for me ?


Bella I want forever with you...

I just cannot make out your face.

I used to believe in a love so true...

It was another time, another place.


I want to be back in the picture but in a different frame.

To paint a masterpiece so beautiful, with not a spark but an eternal flame.


To taste passions tongue, yet to feel a comfortable truth...

To awake on the beach at sunrise, from the previous sunset with you.


Juliet where are you hiding ? 

Anastasia are you just a dream ?

Maggie if I were your Angel...

Would you fall to earth for me ?


Bella I want forever with you...

I just cannot make out your face.

I used to believe in a love so true...

It was another time, another place.


I’ll be up on my balcony...

For all the busy world to see.

With what’s left of my wasted heart...

Hanging on my sleeve.

Gripping onto what is left,

Of all that I believe.


Come on Juliet out of hiding...

Come put a smile back on my face...

Prove to me there’s still a dream...

For all a saving grace.


Juliet where are you hiding ? 

Anastasia are you just a dream ?

Maggie if I were your Angel... 

Would you fall to earth for me ?


Bella I want forever with you. 

I just cannot make out your face.

I used to believe in a love so true...

It was another time, another place.
