O, take the sense, sweet, of my innocence!
Love takes the meaning in love’s conference.
I mean that my heart unto yours is knit
So that but one heart we can make of it.
Two bosoms interchainèd with an oath,
So then two bosoms and a single troth.
Then by your side no bed-room me deny,
For lying so, Hermia, I do not lie.

– William Shakespeare

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 2, Scene 2. In his declaration of love to Hermia, Lysander defends his request to sleep beside her as innocent. He uses metaphorical language to describe how their hearts are "knit" into one heart, two bodies "interchainèd" with vows of love. He uses wordplay to argue that it is not wrong for them to "lie" together as he didn’t "lie" when he pledged to marry her.
