Love Sonnet 140: 'Please talk to me, not with a scented sigh'

Please talk to me, not with a scented sigh,
Come no closer than you already are,
Whisper me no angelic lullaby,
Your love I have sensed, even from afar;
Tell me, have I been wise, to hide that long,
Choosing only paths that sages direct?
Yet I scorn to think, should I not belong,
To your loving arms, I tried to neglect;
Among the sins with which the angels fell,
Find me there 'love' if there really is,
If so, count me then as one who would tell,
There's no fire in Hell that dissuades a kiss;
.......Show me all the paths, such that I may view,
.......I will tread the one which leads me to you.
