I Speak Not, I Trace Not, I Breathe Not Thy Name - Poem by George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
The deep thoughts that dwell in that silence of heart.
Too brief for our passion, too long for our peace,
Were those hours - can their joy or their bitterness cease?
We repent, we abjure, we will break from our chain, -
We will part, we will fly to - unite it again!
Oh! thine be the gladness, and mine be the guilt!
Forgive me, adored one! - forsake if thou wilt;
But the heart which is thine shall expire undebased,
And man shall not break it - whatever thou may'st.
And stern to the haughty, but humble to thee,
This soul in its bitterest blackness shall be;
And our days seem as swift, and our moments more sweet,
With thee at my side, than with worlds at our feet.
One sigh of thy sorrow, one look of thy love,
Shall turn me or fix, shall reward or reprove.
And the heartless may wonder at all I resign -
Thy lips shall reply, not to them, but to mine.

May, 1814.

    A passionate love poem full of melancholia and a guilty conscience. (Report) Reply

    Susan Williams' comment below is a valid one. I haven't read much of Byron's poems, but I know him well by that reputation to which Susan so pointedly refers. Gloomy and oppressive he may be in his description of love. I have met people in this day and age who carry the same kind of melancholy passion around like it's a cross they must bear, and these people I have avoided at all costs. Their negative energy can suck at one like leeches. And yet, I must admit, I admire the poetry of Byron. He certainly knew how to put all that melancholia into beautiful sounding art! (Report) Reply
