My Mother has just spoken with me about marriage to man called Paris. But ‘it is a honour I do not dream of’. I just cant believe that my parents want to marry me off so young, I was only considering it to keep my parents happy, but this evening changed my mind. I met a wonderful young man last night whom I have fallen deeply in love with. Romeo is his name, I knew it was love the at the first glance when our eyes met and we were unable to draw ourselves apart, I stared at him for what seemed like forever.
All the music and excitement of the party seemed to be swirling around me, I felt somewhat distant from the people that surrounded me. He started coming towards me, I felt hot but excited, he looked so beautiful, with his soft pastille face and deep green eyes, I wanted to hold him so tightly (quote) , his kiss felt soft , it felt so right we were perfect for each other.
I wanted him to hold me forever I felt safe in his arms as though nothing could hurt me, I knew it was going to be a great night.
Nurse interrupted us, I saw a glint in her eyes that she saw how much we loved each other, ‘ Madam, your mother craves a word with you’ she whispered to me, I had to leave Romeo we exchanged looks again, I never wanted to leave him, it was then that nurse told me that my love was a Montague ‘My only love sprung from my only hate,’ my whole world shattered around me, how can this be happening to me that ‘I must love a loathed enemy’.
I had to get a hold of myself ‘ what’s in a name’.
I didn’t care what the nurse had just told me, I had fallen in love and that was it, I rushed down stairs back to the party but my Romeo was no where to be seen. How can this love disappear from my life now? Later that evening a unexpected visitor arrived at my balcony, I was so please to see Romeo, I thought that we would never see him again, it was then I knew his love for me, he risked his life just to see me, I knew that if anyone found him, he would be killed, so I was extremely cautious about anyone seeing him.’
Romeo Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name; or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet’, My words seemed to run away with me, I knew that this was right, I didn’t want to be married of to some man who I didn’t even know, Romeo is the one, and I am sure he feels the same way. ‘ My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep; the more I give to thee the more I have, for both are infinite’.
I made a promise to him that I would become his wife, I didn’t care about my family, all I wanted was my dear Romeo, he made me happy and says the most beautiful things to me, unlike the unworthy Paris. I heard the nurse calling, I hurried Romeo out as I didn’t want anyone to find him here, we rushed to say good bye, I found it so hard, again it was like when we first meet I never wanted to let him go, I wish I could just leave my life now and start again’ Sweet, so would I, Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing. Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.
