For your own gain a lover you desired

Even out of selfishness,your kindness is loved.

oh shameless attitudes do me dismay
unshivering shame without the pains
Why love at all when it originates
from selfishly wrought conditions and gains.
For your own selfish gain a lover you like,
and desire to enrich your own life.
To fulfill your own loneliness you require
and not his, the love you so desired.
Alone to be the purest way became
to keep your soul unstainèd; this do crave.

For your own gain a lover you desired.
