Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master Juliet speaks this sentence when she leaves Romeo at the end of the famous balcony scene. It is an oxymoron, that is to say this temporary separation is both a suffering and a sweetness, in that she will await their reunion with delight. This paradoxical expression shows that the relationship between Romeo and Juliet is imbued with a certain amount of sadomasochism.
