I believe this poem is about a man who is in love with a certain woman who,
unlike him, has participated in sinister things, causing her afterlife to
be consumed in Hell. Yet he refuses to travel to the "soft gardens" of
Heaven until he waits for his loved one to come back to him from the Hell
that she was placed in when both lovers died. The poem is moving and very
symbolistic about strong love.
