cuncta tuus sepelivit amor (III.15.11-2)

cuncta tuus sepelivit amor, nec femina post te

ulla dedit collo dulcia vincla meo.

Your love has buried all others; and none other after you put sweet fetters upon my neck.

One of my favourite quotes from Propertius ever, for the wonderful darkness that pervades his poetry. Never take him as a good romantic model, though.
