Sonnet 134 by William Shakespeare

Sonnet 134 by William Shakespeare


So, now I have confessed that he is thine

And I myself am mortgaged to thy will,

Myself I’ll forfeit, so that other mine

Thou wilt restore to be my comfort still.                4


But thou wilt not, nor he will not be free,

For thou art covetous, and he is kind;

He learned but surety-like to write for me

Under that bond that him as fast doth bind.         8


The statute of thy beauty thou wilt take,

Thou usurer that put’st forth all to use,

And sue a friend came debtor for my sake;

So him I lose through my unkind abuse.                12


Him have I lost; thou hast both him and me.

He pays the whole, and yet am I not free
