Les Fleurs du mal by jesterry Les Fleurs du mal by jesterry
Je t’adore à l’égal de la voûte nocturne,
Ô vase de tristesse, ô grande taciturne,
Et t’aime d’autant plus, belle, que tu me fuis,
Et que tu me parais, ornement de mes nuits,
Plus ironiquement accumuler les lieues
Qui séparent mes bras des immensités bleues.

Je m’avance à l’attaque, et je grimpe aux assauts,
Comme après un cadavre un chœur de vermisseaux,
Et je chéris, ô bête implacable et cruelle,
Jusqu’à cette froideur par où tu m’es plus belle !


Charles Baudelaire, 1857 « Je t’adore à l’égal de la voûte nocturne »
Because sometimes love is cruel...


For ^jussta's Love is vexel contest.
Used lasso tool, paint bucket and "What love is made of" palette - and the variety of colours is created with various layers' modes, such as multiply, overlay and color dodge (my favourite :heart: )

Wow, this is beautiful!! I love it!!
The poem sounds interesting too but I haven't learnt any French yet... Do you know where I can find the translation?? (Google translate is a little sketchy...)

Yeah, sometimes I also wish I could fave certain arts as much as I want to!!

Even though we're beta-testers, they still haven't introduced a useful option like this one :XD::XD::XD:

How can I forget the person that translated Edgar Allan Poe, another great poet, to French?
