Star Crossed Lovers

written by: silverqueen
Shakespeare writes about "a pair of star crossed lovers " in one of his greatest plays. The trouble with being star crossed lovers in Shakespeare's plays is that the lovers often die. Being a hopeless romantic, I'm choosing to use the definition of star crossed lovers as lovers that are destined to meet and travel on the inevitable path that fate charts. But remember, as Nazareth sings in their song, Love Hurts.
