* IfICantHaveYou: This is one of the many ways in which the narrator of "Locksley Hall" is bitter about the course his life has taken, to the point where he says it would be better if he'd killed his lover Amy than for her to be married to a lesser man, though from context it doesn't seem like he actually believes that. He ends up decrying all women as inferior and unintelligent, which reads more as "sour grapes" than anything, especially given Tennyson's progressive views on women in real life, and given that the narrator had complimented her intelligence (among other things) several times while insulting her husband. Moreover, this is his attitude towards ''everything'' he thinks he can't have.

* AgeWithoutYouth: The title character of "Tithonus" asks for his "gift" of eternal life to be taken away, as it is worthless without also having eternal youth. Alas, "the Gods themselves cannot recall their gifts."
