Irrational lover

You grief me my lady
Seize my quietness in all modesty
Bid me sleep on thorns
Never to rise to grace

In your kindness; you pray I prosper in misery Wish I’ve the patient to bear suffering wit’ smile
Without taking a bride as gracious as death
Such terms you gave me

For in your meekness
I’d never know peace
Any less than I nurse misfortune
Such were your kindness in no kind way

Now, you wish you were my duchess
Riding on unicorn with sterling wings
Silk and pearls at your feet
Your hair trailing behind them heels

That which I took, I can give back
You can't replace that which you've broken

    The poet seemingly shows some disappointment, frustration regarding a former lover... Even though he can give back, the poet firmly believes You cannot replace that which/ You have taken.
    Thanks for sharing it!
