Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

316. Not My Enemies Ever Invade Me


NOT my enemies ever invade me—no harm to my pride from them I fear; 
But the lovers I recklessly love—lo! how they master me! 
Lo! me, ever open and helpless, bereft of my strength! 
Utterly abject, grovelling on the ground before them.
