a midsummer night's dream
helena following Demetrius
I love thee not therefore pursue me not, Hence get thee gone and follow me no more
Do I entice you?Do I speak you fair?Or rather do I not in plainest truth,tell you I do not,nor I cannot love you?
You draw me ,you hard-hearted adamant.But yet you draw not iron , for my heart is true as steel
And even for that do I love you the more,I am your spaniel , and Demetrius,the more you beat me,I will fawn on you!
And I am sick when I look not on you
Tempt not too much the hatred of my spirit for I am sick when I do look on thee
You do impeach your modesty too much,too leave the city,and commit yourself into the hands of one that loves you not,to trust the opportunity of night,and the ill counsel of a desert place,with the rich worth of your virginity
Your virtue is my privilege : for that it is not night when I do see your face
I ll' follow thee,and make a heaven of hell,to die upon the hand I love so well
Bootless speed,when cowardice pursues,and valour flies
I ll' run from thee , and hide me in the brakes,and leave thee to the mercy of wild beasts
I will not stay thy questions,let me go
