Act I, Scene 134

  • Shakespeare. So, now I have confess'd that he is thine,
    And I myself am mortgaged to thy will, 1865
    Myself I'll forfeit, so that other mine
    Thou wilt restore, to be my comfort still:
    But thou wilt not, nor he will not be free,
    For thou art covetous and he is kind;
    He learn'd but surety-like to write for me 1870
    Under that bond that him as fast doth bind.
    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. 1875
    Him have I lost; thou hast both him and me:
    He pays the whole, and yet am I not free.
