You have seduced me, Lord, and I have let myself be seduced…

You have overpowered me: you were the stronger.

I am a daily laughing-stock, whom everyone mocks.

I used to say, ‘I will not think about him, I will not speak in his name any more.’

Then there seemed to be a fire burning in my heart, imprisoned in my bones.

The effort to restrain it wearied me, I could not bear it.
