Romeo And Rosaline Letter

Good Essays
My lovely Rosaline, When I first glimpsed you amidst the crowd, I thought that my eyes had deceived me. Before I laid my eyes upon your charming face, I had never imagined that such beauty could exist in a woman. As I continued to stare at you from across the street, you caught my eye and feelings inside me that I never knew existed bubbled to the surface. A love that was deep, red, and pure engulfed me. Since that encounter, I have dreamt of a day that we would get married, have children, and live a long and happy life. Those happy thoughts flooded my mind, and I was swallowed by the love I had for you. My love for you expanded as the days went by. Every morning, I would return to the spot that I had first seen you, and hope that you would return. At last, a few days later, my patience paid off. I saw you again, but I was too shy to approach you. Seeing you again sparked the fire that was already burning weakly in my heart, and it ignited into a forest fire that blazed through my body. I was determined to become your lover the next time we met. Eventually, I gathered enough courage to approach you and talk to you. Before I could say a word, however, you told me that you were dedicated to a life of chaste, and then walked away, leaving me speechless. The arrow that Cupid had fired at you ricocheted and sunk into my willing flesh. It was a one way relationship, with me loving you and you pushing me away. My life became a slideshow in my head as the days silently slipped by, my mind filled only with thoughts of you. Every morning I would walk alone amongst the grove of sycamore trees, living as if I were dead. Penned in my room throughout the day, I created an artificial night, where I spent countless hours staring into empty space. Why do you not love me like I love you? There is but one clear image in my mind, and that is the image of your face. The beautiful, flawless face that I have loved since the moment I laid my eyes upon you. Everyone else is but a foggy

    Romeo and Juliet Essay One of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies is ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Romeo, the male protagonist, is a thoughtful, sensitive character who comes across as a very non-violent person. He behaves a little immaturely at times (usually under the influence of his cousins) but is generally a very serious person. At the beginning of the play, he seems to be love-sick as he has an unrequited love – better put as an infatuation – for Rosaline from the house of Capulet, but later, in Act…

    Fair Rosaline, You were the morning sun that peeked into my balcony windows when dawn broke. The stars were your eyes, and the beautiful, long, thick tresses of the willow tree was your hair. Your hands and feet were delicate, like rose petals. Your skin was as smooth as the mirror surface of lake water on a windless night. Your cheeks were rosy, and your tinkling laugh floated through the air like music to my ears. Rosaline, you were my everything, my life, and my love; but alas, you did not love…

First, he displays symptoms of a broken heart and feelings of hopelessness, which are both common for someone who has loved and lost. Some of the symptoms mentioned in the text include: sleeplessness, confusion, weeping, sighing, and bitterness. Montague speaks of his lamenting son by saying, “Many a morning hath he…
