Remorse - Poem by Pierre Louys
At first I would not reply, and my shame showed upon my cheeks, and the beating of my heart brought pain to my breasts.
Then I resisted, I told him 'No! No!' - I turned my head away, and his kiss did not open my lips, - nor love, my tight-closed knees.
Then he begged me to forgive him, kissed my hair, I felt his burning breath, and he went away.... Now I am alone.
I gaze upon the empty place, the deserted wood, the trampled earth. And I bite my fingers until they bleed, and I stifle my sobs in the grass.
