Here you will find the Poem Confession of poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin
I love you - I love you, e'en as I Rage at myself for this obsession, And as I make my shamed confession, Despairing at your feet I lie. I know, I know - It ill becomes me, I am too old, time to be wise ... But how? ... This love - it overcomes me, A sickness this in passion's guise. When you are near I'm filled with sadness, When far, I yawn, for life's a bore. I must pour out this love, this madness, There's nothing that I long for more! When your shirts rustle, when, my angel, Your girlish voice I hear, when your Light step sounds in the parlour - strangely, I turn confused, perturbed, unsure. Your frown - and I'm in pain, I languish; You smile - and joy defeats distress; My one reward for a day's anguish Comes when your, pale hand, love, I kiss. When you sit, bent over your sewing, Your eyes cast down and fine curls blowing. About your face, with tenderness I like childlike watch, my heart o'erflowing With love, in my gaze a caress. Shall I my jealousy and yearning Describe, my bitterness and woe When by yourself on some bleak morning Off on a distant walk you go, Or with another spend the evening And, with him near, the piano play, Or for Opochka leave, or, grieving Weep and in silence, pass the day? Alina! Pray relent have mercy! I dare not ask for love - with all My many sins, both great and small, I am perhaps of love unworthy! But if feigned love, if you would Pretend, you'd easily deceive me, For happily would I, believe me, Deceive myself if but I could!
