Romeo's diary
When he meets Rosaline
Dear diary,
I forgot to tell you that i saw the prettiest women in the world called
Rosaline. I am in love with her. I have been depressed since the day before
yesterday. My heart hurts to say that she did not accept me. My cousin
Benvolio tried to make me feel happy. But he made me even sadder
because of my sadness. Yes, this is what love does. Griefs of mine own lie
heavy in my breast, which thou wilt propagate, to have it pressed with
more of thine. This love that thou hast shown doth add more grief to too
much of mine own. You must be wondering why I have been up to her
when she hates me. A right fair mark, fair coz, is soonest hit. Well, you're
not on target there. Well, in that hit you miss. She'll not be hit With Cupid's
arrow. She hath Diana's wit. And, in strong proof of chastity well armed
from love's weak childish bow, she lives uncharmed. She will not stay the
siege of loving terms, nor bide th' encounter of assailing eyes, nor ope her
lap to saintseducing gold. Oh, she is rich in beauty, only poor that
when she dies, with beauty dies her store... I could see her pretty face in
every corner of my room. I shut up my windows, locked fair daylight out
and made myself artificial night.
When he meets Juliet
Dear diary
O dear account! My life is in my foe's dept. Ay, in love with the daughter of
Lord Capulet, called Juliet. So I fear and the more is my unrest. Seriously,
it was a love at first sight. Of course, she was in the Capulet ball. Benvolio
encouraged me to find another beautiful lady the other day when I was
upset about being out of love with Rosaline.
I mean, I love everything about Juliet. I want to be with her all the time. I
am certainly willing to do anything for her. If she asks me to gat married to
her I certainly will. If she wants, I will die for her too...
I was on my way home but I could not take it anymore. I was driven
towards the Capulet mansion. I reached their underneath Juliet's bedroom.
There was the light over her window. Guess what?? She talked about me. I
mean, how she loves being with me. We shared kisses. Unlike, Rosaline,
she loved me. She is so beautiful looking. I think I was not exactly in love
with Rosaline the last few days.

Here's a taster:

The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars as daylight doth a
lamp. Her eye in heaven would through the airy region stream so bright
that birds would sing and think it were not night. Her hand as she leans
them upon her tender cheeks. Oh, that I were a glove upon that hand that I
might touch that cheek! I feel deeply in love with Juliet. Diary I hope you
understand my feelings.…read more

An interesting way of revising some of the key moments of the play.
