Shall I compare thee to a winter’s storm?

Surely thou art more unforgiving, relentless

 

Mercy is a foreign language you don’t comprehend; pity is a substance you view with disgust

 

Shall I compare thee to a fetid wind?

Surely thou art more unpleasant, revolting

 

Every breath you exhale is filled with acerbity and rancor; you must have been born with an evil heart

 

Shall I describe thee as the blackening plague?

Surely thy temper is more contagious, more hazardous to my health

 

What I’ve received from thee is a mental disease, and I can feel my mind debilitating further with every word you do speak

 

Shall I depict thee as a living corpse?

Surely thou art more stiff and cold, more disengaged, corrupted

 

Thy image appears distinguished in the face of all mankind

 

But surely thou art grotesque, and maliciously inclined
