by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

Tu me da me dividi
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Tu me da me dividi,
barbaro, tu m’uccidi;
tutto il dolor ch’io sento
tutto mi vien da te.
No; non sperar mai pace.
Odio quel cor fallace;
oggetto di spavento
sempre sarai per me.
