"Contracted to thine own bright eyes" is undoubtedly one of my favorite lines: in its simplest sense, contracted means "obligated to" or "married to", and this describes the "throuple" - or three-way relationship - between Shakespeare, his sonnet reflection, and the reader (Echo, or right at this very moment, you and me). At the same time, however, the sonnets are composed of the ink distilled from Shakespeare's grief, so he himself has been shrunk down into marks on the page.

Marks that have survived to tell their creator's story hundreds of years into the future.
