Alfred de Musset – September 1, 1834

September 1, 1834

But let me have this letter, containing nothing but your love; and tell me that you give me your lips, your hair, all that face that I have possessed, and tell me that we embrace – you and I!

O God, O God, when I think of it, my throat closes, my sight is troubled; my knees fail, ah, it is horrible to die, it is also horrible to love like this!  What longing, what longing I have for you!  I beg you to let me have the letter I ask.  I am dying. Farewell.

Alfred de Musset, French Poet, to Amantine Aurore Dudevant, French writer.
