I was over you. And then I wasn’t. And then I was and we found ourselves in a cycle of an almost love-affair but we were just never certain. So I was content on watching every piece of you unfold not minding the ache that was stinging every inch of me. I convinced myself I was never going to write about you even if this results to the perfect heartbreak I’ve always been expecting. But here I am, taking some time off from existing in the world in which you live in, writing about how I’ve always been trying to run after and catch your heart while you had mine caged in yours from the very start.The worst part is, never did I ask you to stop as I watched you crumple my heart into nothingness because you always seemed like a good remedy. When I finally saw the end coming, I begged you to just give me back my heart despite it being bruised and battered but you just held it in your hands and I was ready to give up anything once again just to stop the ache. It’s as if I was miles away from you and there was a huge barricade separating the two of us just so I can never get back what I should have never given you in the first place.
But then I got tired and I guess I just gave up on you. So I stopped clawing, stopped begging, stopped running and you didn’t like it. You threw my heart on the ground, stared at me as you were getting ready to turn it into dust, but I finally got the courage to turn back and say, “Just clean up after your mess.”
Romeo + Juliet (1996) Trivia: The church used for the death scene was a real church named “The Temple of the Immaculate Heart of Mary” in Colonia Del Valle (Mexico). Director Baz Luhrmann said it was very difficult obtaining permission to film in that particular location due to the nature of the scene.
