MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt – Pyramus and Thisbe

***

Whispered love through a phone

Two lovers remain alone

Wanting more than mails and text

Decide to move to the next step

Parents vowed they would not meet

The couple thought they were discreet

The evening the tryst took place

Thisbe first finds bloody drops to face

Feeling she had lost her love

Dies, promising to meet above

Pyramus arrives too late

Sees blood, thinks it’s from his mate

Since she does not appear

Tragedy occurred he fears

Thus he too won’t survive

Takes his life out of strife.
