Falling in love, hmm it’s only the greatest feeling ever! There is one precious thing that comes to a man in this world and that’s a woman’s heart. Romeo and Juliet fall in love; the twist to this is that their families absolutely despise each other without having one thought in allowing their children to get the chance to know each other let alone get married.
The Montagues and the Capulets are at each other’s throats for unexplainable reasons. Friar Lawrence, friend of both Romeo and Juliet, always has a Plan-B and tries to predict that the love of Romeo and Juliet will bring the Montagues and the Capulets together, bringing peace in Verona.
Not being allowed to see the one you love is like going through hell, It's torture. It hurts the most when you can’t see your loved one. But love makes people do crazy things, ( I would know by experience.) I too am in deep love with a young woman, with every appearance of her blinding me.
My dear friend Romeo, I too know how it feels, pains me it does to be away from the one I love. I know how it feels to compare my loved one to the moon; losing her would mean the end of my world, she’s everything to me and I know Juliet is everything to you, soon you two shall be at peace together.
Reading Romeo and Juliet reminds me of Twilight, two families at war, Vampires and Ware wolfs at war, doesn’t that sound similar to you? Shakespeare is at one with nature, his beliefs in faith were that no matter what vile, repulsive things you do, you will fulfill your destiny; from the moment Romeo was conceived his destiny to meet Juliet, the love of his life.
Will I set up my everlasting rest,
And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars
From this world-wearied flesh. Eyes look your last.
Arms, take your last embrace .And, Lips,
O you the doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss
A dateless bargain to engrossing death”.
