Love (2)

Someone kindly suggested that I post this, and it might just be the perfect counterpart to Shakespeare… This is only a translation of the original, but still a very good read:

Love is a wild animal
It breathes you it looks for you
It nests upon broken hearts
and goes hunting where there are kisses and candles
It sucks tightly on your lips
and digs tunnels through your ribs
It drops softly like snow
First it gets hot then cold, in the end it hurts

Amour Amour
Everyone just wants to tame you
Amour Amour in the end
caught between your teeth

Love is a wild animal
It bites and scratches and kicks towards me
It holds me tightly with a thousand arms
and drags me into its love nest
It devours me completely
and retches me back out after many years
It drops softly like snow
First it gets hot then cold, in the end it hurts

Amour Amour
Everyone just wants to tame you
Amour Amour in the end
caught between your teeth

Love is a wild animal
You fall into its trap
It stares into your eyes
Spellbound when its gaze hits you

Please please give me poison

– someone in Rammstein (probably Till Lindemann), Amour, Germany, 2004.
