Sie haben mich gequält

1152978207-hr-159They 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
