I had to tell you about everything. I had to say goodbye in some way. I couldn’t just leave this world without saying goodbye.
It all started a few days ago when I went to the Capulet’s ball with Mercutio and Benvolio. I admit that I went to the ball thinking that Rosaline was going to attend the ball. At first when I got there I thought it was going to be boring and everyone was just going to get drunk.
But when I saw Juliet (who I didn’t know was the Capulet’s daughter) I just fell for her. Her hazel eyes, her beautiful brown hair and everything else about her was just so amazing.
When she looked at me for the first time it felt so great. Then we kissed, I felt so warm. I know you must be thinking that I’m mad. Anyway I couldn’t help myself, so I had to meet up with Juliet again. It was like we had this magnetic force that couldn’t keep us apart. When we saw each other again we decided crazily that we should get married the next day.
I went to see Friar Lawrence at first he thought I was mad. But later he thought that it might be a good idea to unite the two families. Another thing father don’t be angry with the Friar, he only did what he thought was right and for the best. Anyway it was decided that, that afternoon that me and Juliet would be married at Friar Lawrence’s cell. That afternoon we were married, but we could obviously not stay together for long.
Anyway I better tell you why I am going to commit suicide and take my own life. As you know I was banished from Verona, because of the murder of Juliet’s dear cousin Tybalt. The night before I was going to leave for Mantua Juliet and me spent a passionate night together. I just don’t understand why she took her life.
When I heard the news from my dear friend Balthsar at first I could not believe it. I just had to go to the tomb where she lay to see for myself. If when I walk in and she is dead, I will drink my poison because I cannot live without her.
Please! O father! Forgive me for all that I have done!
