The Sonnets1609Be wise as thou art cruel; do not press

My tongue-tied patience with too much disdain,

Lest sorrow lend me words and words express

The manner of my pity-wanting pain.

If I might teach thee wit, better it were,

Though not to love, yet, love, to tell me so,

As testy sick men, when their deaths be near,

No news but health from their physicians know.

For if I should despair, I should grow mad,

And in my madness might speak ill of thee,

Now this ill-wresting world is grown so bad,

Mad slanderers by mad ears believèd be.That I may not be so, nor thou belied,Bear thine eyes straight, though thy proud heart go wide.

.: Sonnet 140 :.

In this sonnet, I believe that William Shakespeare is talling about how sad he is and how he cannot express it out loud. He talks about his "tongue-tied patience" and his "pity-wanting pain" which makes me wonder what he was going through. He seemed as though he were asking for someone to talk to or to feel sorry for him. Therefore, I believe that he was nothing other than a torchered soul and that his sonnets were the only place he could really ..let go. Happy on the outside- sad on the inside, and yet unable to show it through any other means than poetry.
