The Bloomer Legacy: 7.8 Sonnet 42

Disclaimer: This sonnet was written by William Shakespeare. I own nothing.

That thou hast her it is not all my grief,

2

And yet it may be said I loved her dearly;

3

That she hath thee is of my wailing chief,

4

A loss in love that touches me more nearly.

5

Loving offenders, thus I will excuse ye:

6

Thou dost love her because thou knowst I love her;

7

And for my sake even so doth she abuse me,

8

Suff’ring my friend for my sake to approve her.

9

If I lose thee, my loss is my love’s gain,

10

And losing her, my friend hath found that loss;

12

Both find each other, and I lose both twain,

13

And both for my sake lay on me this cross.

14

But here’s the joy; my friend and I are one;

15

Sweet flatt’ry! Then she loves but me alone.

    1. They were friends before, but I guess they connected over their recent memory distortion. Or might it was a right place at the right time kind of thing (right being relative in this context, I suppose)

    1. Lol! Candy is probably my favourite premade, I have a weird obsession with her (probably because I never really got to play her!) But Astrid’s definitely not her biggest fan now 🙂
