Act 5 Scene 1
By: Spencer Annis
In act 5 scene 1, Balthasar goes to Mantua in order to speak to Romeo. He gives Romeo news that Juliet is dead. Romeo becomes very anxious and worries. He goes to an apothecary and asks for a drug that would kill him. The apothecary wouldn't give him the poison because it was illegal, but Romeo persuaded him to give him the drug.
I chose this song because it makes me think of the time when I was told my grandfather died. I connect the feeling of the song and the meaning behind the lyrics with how Romeo may have been feeling at the time
