Love Eternalized

Other than this poem suiting my dark & melodramatic mood today I have no other reason to blog it.

A Man to his Mistress
by Margaret Cavendish

O do not grieve, Dear Heart, nor shed a Tear, 

Since in your Eyes my Life doth still appear; 

And in your Countenance my Death I find, 

I’m Buried in your Melancholy Mind; 

But in your Smiles I’m Glorified to Rise, 

And your pure Love doth me Eternalize: 

Thus by your Favour you a God me make, 
But by your Hate a Devils Shape I take

“To all Noble, and Worthy Ladies”, Poems and Fancies (1653)
