When Romeo learns of Juliet's "death" (Act 5 Scene 1), he plans to be join her and goes to an apothecary to buy poison.

The question I have is why did he choose to use poison on HIMSELF rather than a dagger, to join Juliet?

Ie. What was Shakespeare's intent on making Romeo use poison rather than a dagger to kill HIMSELF?
