Here, son. Take my sword. I am so tired, yet I cannot sleep. Hopefully, something will keep the nightmares away.
It's me, friend. Don't be startled. I see you are not asleep, as nor am I.
I have been thinking about the witches. The prophecies they have given us keep me awake.
Oh...the witches...uh yeah I haven't thought about them much. Y'know why don't we talk about this later.
Banquo leaves and MacBeth worries about his future plans
Is this a dagger that I see in front of me? I cannot touch you, but I can see you. You seem so real. My senses are tricking me. This dagger here leads me to Duncan. After this there will be blood everywhere that was not there before. No, this is not real. It is the murder that is making me see this. Half the world is asleep while I am here being deceived by nightmares. The longer I talk the longer Duncan lives... The bell has rung and now it is time. Duncan, I hope you did not hear the bell because that is what will bring you to heaven or to hell.
The owl shrieked and bells rung. These are things that happen before someone is executed. Macbeth must be doing the job now. I would have done it myself...if only Duncan did not look like my father while he slept.
