Tough love?

Cosmo - possibly ??! I can't decide. When I first read the poem, I read the second stanza in light of the first - a world view. So I felt she was saying: I can show you a world that will fill your heart so full with love that it will break ....

Then there's the personal (I) viewpoint - was she challenging a lover/friend perhaps -- 'I will give you enough love to break your heart forever ...?'

Only the poet knows for sure ...
