Quote #4

Take me to you, imprison me, for I, Except you enthrall me, never shall be free, Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me. (lines 12-14)

Considering what we saw in the "Quote" above (lines 10-11), it's interesting that, at some point, the speaker agrees to marry the Satan, while here, he doesn't agree to marriage with God so much as a more sexual encounter. Shouldn't Satan be the one who "imprisons?"
