Sie haben mich gequält


They have tormented me
Early and late
Some with their love,
Some with their hate.
The wine I drank,
The bread I ate,
Some poisoned with love,
Some poisoned with hate.
Yet she who has grieved me
Most of all,
She never hated
Nor loved me at all.
Heinrich Heine

Translated by Monica Turnbull
