XXXII

The first time that the sun rose on thine oath
To love me, I looked forward to the moon
To slacken all those bonds which seemed too soon
And quickly tied to make a lasting troth.
Quick-loving hearts, I thought, may quickly loathe;
And, looking on myself, I seemed not one
For such man's love!—more like an out-of-tune
Worn viol, a good singer would be wroth
To spoil his song with, and which, snatched in haste,
Is laid down at the first ill-sounding note.
I did not wrong myself so, but I placed
A wrong on thee. For perfect strains may float
'Neath master-hands, from instruments defaced,—
And great souls, at one stroke, may do and doat.

First things first, you need to set a hard and fast target date because you are going to completely quit, such as 2-3 weeks from now. However, it is important to find the doctor's opinion first before you take these oral medications as these would have gloomy effects about the body. x

The sonnet is late in the series and is a reflection on the the doubt EBB felt when Browning first loved her - fears for the transience of his emotions have given way to confidence and passion and the belief that Browning\'s \'mastery\' more than compensates for her age and fragility

This is about a woman and a man who recently became engaged (the sun rose on thine oath/ to love me). however, the woman is not sure if she should continue the relationship with the man because she thinks she is not good enough for him (looking on myself, I seemed not one/ for such man's love!). The speaker goes on to compare herself to a worn, out of tune instrument, who can only make the man seem like a bad singer. She thinks that after the man "plays" her, he will realize how bad of an instrument she really is. To prevent this, the speaker ends the relationship. But, she says "I did not wrong myself so, but I placed/ a wrong on thee," which is her saying to the man that he isn't the one who broke her heart, she is the one who broke his. Finally, she realizes that the man is a master singer, and can make any instrument sound wonderful. He can make her perfect. "For perfect strains may float/ 'neath master-hands, from instruments defaced."
