Romeo and Juliet Act 3, Scene 5
This is a modern interpretation of Act 3, Scene 5 of the Shakespeare classic, "Romeo and Juliet."
Are you leaving? It's not morning yet; you heard the nightingale, so it's night. It wasn't the lark you heard, I swear, it was the nightingale.
No, it wasn't the nightingale, it was the lark, which means that it's morning. Look outside; I have to go if I want to live. If i stay, I'll die.
Well maybe it's only a meteor from the sun that can light up your way to Mantua! Please don't leave yet; stay awhile.
Oh great, just let me be captured and killed. You know, I'm happy with whatever you want. Let's pretend that the moon is casting that light, not the sun. If Juliet says so, it must be night, so I'll stay and welcome death.
Oh, you're right. It was the lark, and it is daylight we see. Romeo, you should just go! It is light out, and there will be men looking for you. You need to leave now.
More light is coming; more sorrow for us.
Oh snap! What is it?
Your mother is coming to your room- be careful.
Go out the window; it lets in light but takes with it life.
Goodbye, goodbye. Kiss me once more, and then I'll leave.
