We are heroes in an unfinished novel.
When we met, I thought
we were Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet;
meant to be together.
And when I lost your love,
I still believed we were Romeo and Juliet...
...but I hoped for a happier ending.
Our readers are patiently waiting
for the final chapter where we reconcile.
After all, it's our duty to live happily ever after.
We could be Mr. Rochester and Jane Eyre,
or Odysseus and Penelope;
we shouldn't be apart.
So, when...how...will I win you back?
