A Little Bit of Drama

#5: Sonnet 129 - “Th' expense of spirit in a waste of shame” by William Shakespeare


Th' expense of spirit in a waste of shame 
Is lust in action; and till action, lust 
Is perjured, murd'rous, bloody, full of blame, 
Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust, 
Enjoyed no sooner but despisèd straight, 
Past reason hunted; and, no sooner had 
Past reason hated as a swallowed bait 
On purpose laid to make the taker mad; 
Mad in pursuit and in possession so, 
Had, having, and in quest to have, extreme; 
A bliss in proof and proved, a very woe; 
Before, a joy proposed; behind, a dream. 
All this the world well knows; yet none knows well 
To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.
