"I have too many fantasies to be a housewife. I guess I am a fantasy."

--Marilyn Monroe

Shall I compare you to a lioness?

With your soft blonde mane shining in the sun,

And like deadly claws unsheathed with finesse,

Your dainty hands hold a dangerous gun.

So like a lioness in every way,

Able to butcher and maim in a blur,

Except for the times when you have no prey,

And lovingly snuggle with me and purr.

But I adore your risky behavior,

And like a deep breath of pure, sweet fresh air,

Your daring and grit have been my savior,

And to the blood that you’ve spilled – I don’t care.

And as long as you don’t ever hunt me,

I just want to say, I love you Bonnie.

Another English assignment. We had to choose a famous couple from history and write a Shakespearean-based sonnet from one partner to the other. I DO realize it's up for debate whether or not Bonnie really participated in the killings, but this is obviously from the "she did" perspective.
