La Haine

Language: French

Que l'ombre des nuits te glace le sang;
Que l'azur du jour brûle ta paupière!
Que toute espérance et toute lumière
A ton souffle meure en se flétrissant.
Qu'un amer désir sans trêve dévore,
Vautour affamé, ton coeur ettes sens!
Que ton pain noirci te brise les dents!
Que l'ennui t'accable et te deshonore!
Qu'un voile d'horreur te cache le jour;
Que voulant prier ta bouche blasphême!
Meurs! meurs écrasé sous mon anathême,
Toi qui m'as ravi mon unique amour!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
