Immortal Belovéd, why imagine our love a lover's hell, when heaven's best and all's right again when Love's provision empowers us and grants our perfect rest? We'd do well to love once more, to never tempt the insolvent coil of our unrest; or shatter our bonds that need not sever despite our lover's quarrels, which manifest. But, like hope, Love overflows forever, conquers, defeats, and overcomes privation; and supplies us in spite of our error, wrath, and want, so we may end desire's famine. If Love's o'er-flowing and never-ending, beloved, then we, too, are worth defending.
