Oh, Wherefore art thou StarCrossed?


Fleeting lights like fireflies brighten the darkness

With hissing booms set to destruction

The ship at edge to heighten, Woes.

We cry for we are lost.

In a world that does not want us.

Cast aside. Dejected. Unlov-ed.

Oh Wherefore are thou StarCrossed?

If ever so there was a sweeter name

We didn’t not know it.

We mourn, we rage, we will not cave.

We love the lost.  We must be found.

Oh #starcrossed love is glorious.

Parting from thee such agonizing sorrow.

We cannot let you go, we cannot go aground.
