"The Last of the Diehard Romantics"

Oh to write you a sonnet!
But I couldn't find the words
So instead I watched Titanic
And I cried until it hurt
And I wondered what it was
That struck a heartfelt chord in me
For I'm too young to know of love,
And loss, and tragedy
It must be that same thing that
Knows the lines of Juliet
And is waiting for a Romeo, but
Hasn't met one yet
Is this sad romantic thing
A figment of myself?
Or is it an invented thing that
I could quickly shelf
I don't mean to immasculate,
Belittle or confuse
But perhaps I am in love with "Love"
And not in love with you?
