There's no missing the love in this myth. After all, it's the desperate love between Pyramus and Thisbe that causes all the problems to begin with. Actually, scratch that—it's the fact that their families won't let them get together. If Pyramus and Thisbe had been allowed to get married, they wouldn't have had to concoct their plan to secretly meet under the mulberry tree to elope. Translation: no one would have died. Right?
Poor Pyramus and Thisbe. They were so looking forward to getting the heck out of Babylon, getting hitched despite their parents wishes, and living happily ever after. Of course, like a whole bunch of other ancient myths, the tale of Pyramus and Thisbe doesn't have a happy ending. The young lovers' dreams, hopes, and plans are spoiled by one lioness, a bloody veil, and a series of highly unfortunate misunderstandings. Instead of living happily ever after, they both end up dead by their own hand. Yeah, it's heavy stuff.
