heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for

is cruel as the grave: the coals
thereof are coals of fire, which
hath a most vehement flame.

Holding hands at midnight
'Neath a starry sky,
Nice work if you can get it,
And you can get it if you try.

Ira Gershwin

My love, you are driving the entire world mad. The nightingales are committing suicide one by one out of jealousy of your voice. The roses took one glance at your beauty and folded themselves from shame. The trees now only whisper your name and the sky hasn't stopped crying since you looked up. Have pity on us, my love. We have already broken all the mirrors and glass out of fear that you will forget us and fall in love with yourself once you see what we all cannot stop seeing.
Kamand Kojouri

George Savile

O! beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

William Shakespeare
