Simile HelpI need help coming up w/a simile for one of Romeo's traits. Can you give me ideas for finishing this line: Romeo's love for Juliet is like ...........
Romeo's love for Juliet is like a destined love not meant to be. It is a love he cannot live with or without.
It is a god-like love that is more than a human can endure. It is a love to compare with the gods yet it has fallen on human hearts.
Without realizing his vulnerability, he is crushed by his love for Juliet. It is a love he cannot live with or without.
It is destined love not meant to be.
It is a love that turns him upside down and inside out.
It is a destined love not meant to be which finds destiny.
I will finish your statement with "Icarus's love for the sun" or "a moth's love for a flame."
The point that I am trying to convey here is that Romeo's love is a mistake. By loving Juliet, he is pushing himself towards his own destruction. It is a reckless love in which he does not really understand what is truly going on. In that way, I think my similes are apt in that they both give the sense of destructive and poorly-considered attractions.
the love a young boy has for a fish he wins at a carnival, short-lived and destined for death.
a rose that quickly blooms but soon withers and dies.
the love a lonely man has for a girl who lives on the other side of the world that he meets in a chatroom, ill-fated because they will never be able to be together.
