There is one break in the poem, separating it into two stanzas- this break is peaceful, almost like a sigh in the middle, which further implies the message of hope, bliss, and
Romeo & Juliet: Honors Prompt In love there are two sides: light and dark. One side is beautiful and bright; the other one is dangerous. In Romeo & Juliet their love is shown often through darkness.
