7 Lines from Paradise Lost

Sight hateful, sight tormenting! Thus these two 
Imparadised in one another’s arms 
The happier Eden, shall enjoy their fill 
Of bliss on bliss, while I to Hell am thrust, 
Where neither joy nor love, but fierce desire, 
Among other torments not the least, 
Still unfulfilled with pain and longing pines;
 
-Milton, Paradise Lost, book IV
