Amor, con quanto sforzo oggi mi vinci! - Petrarca
Come back to me, who wait and watch for you:—
Or come not yet, for it is over then,
And long it is before you come again,
So far between my pleasures are and few.
While, when you come not, what I do I do
Thinking “Now when he comes,” my sweetest when:
For one man is my world of all the men
This wide world holds; O love, my world is you.
Howbeit, to meet you grows almost a pang
Because the pang of parting comes so soon;
My hope hangs waning, waxing, like a moon
Between the heavenly days on which we meet:
Ah me, but where are now the songs I sang
When life was sweet because you call’d them sweet?
Christina Georgina Rossetti, Monna Innominata: A Sonnet of Sonnets (x), 1
If you want to see a believable female character who’s equal parts weak and strong, cold manipulation and heartbreaking emotion, underhandedness and sincerity, brokenness and resilience, please refer to Vera Farmiga’s Norma Bates.
