The World Had Fled
BY RACHEL WETZSTEON
The world had fled, with all its silly cares
and questionable aches, and in one swoon
we rose above its stupefying airs
like flying lovesick pigs up to the moon.
In that blue light where two lives equaled all,
our souls looked down upon a spinning ball.

Oh Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name.
Or if thou wilt not , be but sworn my love
And I‘ll no longer be a Capulet.
Tis but thy name that is my enemy ...
... What‘s in a name ? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet ....
OK I need a moment...this book is REALLY good. I can see why it has been heaped with so much praise. There is one thing though I can't get Brad Pitt out of my head 😍
