Thy bosom is endearèd with all hearts
Which I, by lacking, have supposèd dead;
And there reigns love, and all love’s loving parts,
And all those friends which I thought burièd.
How many a holy and obsequious tear
Hath dear religious love stol'n from mine eye
As interest of the dead, which now appear
But things removed that hidden in thee lie.
Thou art the grave where buried love doth live,
Hung with the trophies of my lovers gone,
Who all their parts of me to thee did give;
That due of many now is thine alone.
  Their images I loved I view in thee,
  And thou, all they, hast all the all of me.

This one really feels tragic to me in some ways. However...what is with combining the sacred and holy with dirty words like "all love's loving parts"? Sheesh.

So what is this combination like a Madonna song?

Ashley (aw13) | 1 comments I’m not gonna lie, the first thing that came to me was divorce. She’s taken his children from him. The death references are his dead life she killed when she took all his life with her. The parts from him and her.

No, my parents didn’t divorce. 😆

Hm, that makes sense. I guess with the rituals, love and such?
