Charles Webbe

Against Indifference

MORE love or more disdain I crave,
    Sweet, be not still indifferent:
O send me quickly to my grave,
    Or else afford me more content!
Or love or hate me more or less,
For love abhors all lukewarmness.

Give me a tempest if 'twill drive
    Me to the place where I would be;
Or if you'll have me still alive,
    Confess you will be kind to me.
Give hopes of bliss or dig my grave:
More love or more disdain I crave.
