1 So, now I have confess'd that he is thine,
2 And I myself am mortgag'd to thy will,
3 Myself I'll forfeit, so that other mine
4 Thou wilt restore, to be my comfort still:
5 But thou wilt not, nor he will not be free,
6 For thou art covetous and he is kind;
7 He learn'd but surety-like to write for me
8 Under that bond that him as fast doth bind.
9 The statute of thy beauty thou wilt take,
10 Thou usurer, that put'st forth all to use,
11 And sue a friend came debtor for my sake;
12 So him I lose through my unkind abuse.
13 Him have I lost; thou hast both him and me:
14 He pays the whole, and yet am I not free.
