The Hearts True Feelings

- ... Romanic love is when closeness and attraction are combined. Teens generally have shorter relationships because at that certain period of time is when they automatically try new things and seek different experiences. Another reason why teens have shorter relationships is because as they get older the things they want in a relationship often changes.

There were sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding at the pores, with dissolution.

- A tragedy imitates the emotional events of life by showing instead of telling. It does not have to be an exact replication of life, but instead have some realistic aspects to it. This type of play is special because an event in the plot is caused by a preceding choice or action performed by the character.
