TRANSLATION
'Upon hearing of My cruelty, moon-faced Radharani may establish some kind of tolerance in Her aggrieved heart. But then She might turn against Me. Or, indeed, being fearful of the lusty desires invoked by the bow of formidable Cupid, She might even give up Her life. Alas! I have foolishly uprooted the soft creeper of Her desire just when it was ready to bear fruit.'
PURPORT
Having been very cruel to Srimati Radharani, Krsna is repenting in this way ( Vidagdha-madhava 2.40).
