I am 54 years old and have loved Millay's poetry since my earyly 20's. If
one has ever had a crazy lover and wished there was a form of "love
insurance", here it is in this sonnet.

Sometimes a poem can come out of its ghostly cracks and frighten one with
such force and intimacy that one might think it were written not by any
poet for the mere sake of poetry, but by some secreted self destined to
strip the soul bare--my heart has just stopped for a moment on this one. I
feel every ounce of this, I drink the poison mentioned, I am there fully in
the contracted spasm of muscle. It is impeccable. A sonnet to rival any
Shakespeare could ever have written. Take it out of love and put it in any
context and you will see your dream of a stalwart life.
