Helena’s Curse

A short poem inspired by Helena, the suffering lover of Demetrius in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

In Love’s purgatory have I lived
Now so shall you
Till you know beyond doubt my love was true

And let sleep not find his home upon thine eye
Til you’re as desirous of me
As of you am I!
