Romeo And Juliet (Romeo Last Words)

Romeo And Juliet (Romeo Last Words)

Juliet-  Romeo my Love,
            Heaven lies within the circle of thy arms,
            there's none I've seen with such charm,
            Pour thy words in my reins,
            touch my heart and see my springs.
            In my heart your words I seek,
            O tell me sweet things O so deep.
            If there's a secret you want to raise,
            kiss me now and see that place,
            I'll be the forbidden one on the tree,
            as long as thy sweet lips take a bite of me.
            And if you're not full from this fruit above,
            take another bite of my sweet love.
            If thou want the sweet honey on thy lip,
            go to the edge and take a sip.
            If the path thou must know,
            down the gentle stream thou must go.

Romeo-  O Juliet beautiful one without a measure,
            beyond the stars are thy treasure.  
            And if at all you let me swim,
            keep me submerged until I'm old and dim.
            And if these waters be sweet always,
            Then let the nights be without the days.

Juliet-. These waters are both sweet and cold,
            quench thy hunger and thy soul.
            And if thou would hear my voice,
            pick among these, thy fruit of choice,
            take a bite if thou are so bold,
            the glorious heavens would unfold.

Romeo-  O beautiful one dripping in grace,
            in the stars I see your face.
            Thy precious beauty is so pure,
            thy sparkling eyes so bold and clear,
            In my heart and in my head,
            to thy voice I have wedded.
            If I must, this I'll do,
            swim the ocean to marry you.
            And if we're to act upon this list,
            let's seal these words with a kiss.

The father arrives.
           Get thine hands off my flower you wolf. Isn't there anymore of your kind in the woods? Heaven tended not for thee to look upon mankind.  

Father- O Juliet... my precious flower. Thou have taken my heart and my power and destroyed them forever.

Juliet-  O father a flower must have the love of the sun and the rain.

Romeo-  Dear Sir I'd go to the ends of the earth for her love...whether hell below or heaven above.

The father- If thou are here when I come back thou shall see hell for thyself.

Juliet-  O Romeo run run toward the sun! Don't stop until the morn. Over the hills and beyond the springs.
And don't stop to rest thy reins.
My father seeks to kill thee.  

Romeo-  What real man runs from a fight, hasn't God given us the days and the nights?
Here I shall stand.
If I am nothing else,
I am a man.

Juliet-  O my love I love thee more than life itself, if you die I'll kill myself.
Do thee honor thy manhood more than our life and love,
Whether it be hell beneath or heaven above.
It's God's choice.
Hear me now and give thy voice.  

Romeo-  O my love I choose thee but if I run we will never be free. If I must die, then let me die. And if thou must then follow me to the sky and let us join hands in heaven.

The father comes back

Father- O you fool my words haven't made thee leave? Like a brute beast that can't conceive. Thou only understand life and death.

The father stabs Romeo in the chest. Romeo grabs his chest, falls to the ground and with his blood draws a circle on the ground and says to Juliet.  

Romeo- With this ring I thee wed.

Juliet-  O my father my love thou has killed and my fate thou has sealed. I was his cuffs and he was my link. Now this poison I must drink.

Juliet drinks the poison and with her last gesture she sticks her finger inside the circle Romeo had drawn and said I do.

After Romeo saw that Juliet had died his last words were.

In the sparkle of thy pure beams,
Lay the secrets to thy sweet streams,
And now this path I must take,
which leads me to thy golden lake.
But what a task and choice is this,
To quench a Star for a kiss,
Which leads such a man as I,
To thy fountain in the sky.
O what a lovely stem upon the soft wind blows,
But I long the root where the sweet water flows,
For desired I with all purpose and pursuit,
To be the fertilizer on this luscious root,
And when tomorrow bloom thy flower,
Drink the nectar of thy sweet power.
O parting brings such...such sorrow,
But these bars won't last beyond tomorrow,
And now if I'm to ever be free,
Shed this shell and join with thee.
