It's a love story for the AGES!
Everybody knows the classic love story of Romeo & Juliet — two star-crossed lovers who would go to the ends of the Earth to prove their undying (or in this case, literally dying) devotion. But have you ever heard of a love story between two poets?
Luckily, love-locked poets don’t have to kill themselves to prove their feelings, they just have to WRITE. Poetry in itself is an expression of emotion, and when two people can both express how they feel through a shared gift of poetry, it’s WAY more effective than drinking poison (or stabbing yourself). Talk about intense, right? Now if only Romeo and Juliet would have known that…
Meet Pierre and Natalie Jeanty. Married couple. Madly in love. Poetic geniuses. Their poems (shared via Instagram) prove just how strong even just a few words can be when put in the right order and shared with the right person. And look at them, they’re ADORABLE together!
Love is powerful. It makes people do crazy things and make rash decisions, but all for the person they care for.
So before you go Romeo & Juliet-style in showing your significant other you care, try writing a poem. Even just a few words could be enough to show your husband, friend, sibling, or long-lost-grandmother how you feel.
SPOILER ALERT: It's impossible.
