Romeo And Not Juliet

Her Romeo is a mask;
And she trusts what she sees.

Her Romeo is her promise;
And he keeps not his own.

Her Romeo is a stranger;
And he lives in her house.

He Romeo is a liar;
And he tells her sugared lies.

Her Romeo is a time;
And wasting her as well.

Her Romeo is an actor;
And in pretence shows his love.

Her Romeo is a womanizer;
And she thinks she’s his woman.

Her Romeo is another Romeo;
And her name is not Juliet.
