Drinking. O true apothecary, Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss, I die.” (5.3.88-120) Romeo has just committed suicide because of the love he has for Juliet . The “drugs” that he is talking about have two meanings, one of which is that the drugs represent his deathly emotions of love, on the other hand, he has just drunk a poison because of the thought of not being with Juliet .
