Sonnet 144: Two Loves I Have, Of Comfort And Despair Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Two loves I have of comfort and despairA
Which like two spirits do suggest me stillB
The better angel is a man right fairA
The worser spirit a woman coloured illB
To win me soon to hell my female evilC
Tempteth my better angel from my sideD
And would corrupt my saint to be a devilC
Wooing his purity with her foul prideD
And whether that my angel be turned fiendE
Suspect I may yet not directly tellF
But being both from me both to each friendG
I guess one angel in another's hellF
Yet this shall I ne'er know but live in doubtH
Till my bad angel fire my good one outH
