Edna St. Vincent Millay - To S. M.

If he should lie a-dying

I AM not willing you should go 
Into the earth, where Helen went; 
She is awake by now, I know. 
Where Cleopatra's anklets rust 
You will not lie with my consent; 
And Sappho is a roving dust; 
Cressid could love again; Dido, 
Rotted in state, is restless still; 
You leave me much against my will.

I'm doing some research in regards to editing this poem. I have been pouring through books, articles, and everything else tying to find out who "S.M." might be. I am not cheating on my homework, just doing some research. If anyone has any suggestions or any words of wisdom, please let me know.
