Edwin Arlington Robinson - Another Dark Lady

Think not, because I wonder where you fled,
That I would lift a pin to see you there; 
You may, for me, be prowling anywhere, 
So long as you show not your little head: 
No dark and evil story of the dead
Would leave you less pernicious or less fair—
Not even Lilith, with her famous hair; 
And Lilith was the devil, I have read. 

I cannot hate you, for I loved you then. 
The woods were golden then. There was a road
Through beeches; and I said their smooth feet showed
Like yours. Truth must have heard me from afar, 
For I shall never have to learn again 
That yours are cloven as no beech’s are.

hard to tell what exactly it's talking about. Theme? Love and hate can be directed at the same person at once.
