Konstantin Balmont

(1867–1942)

The Shine Of Pain

"Give me your heart, but only - not divided" -
Heard Tarial the words of Nestan-Djar.
Oh, how there was strong and deep her charm,
That just by her he was since left delighted.

Only by her he was since tortured, lighted,
For Nestan-Daredjan was all his flame,
And only lightning gives a strike the same -
That she can't help being to ashes blighted.
