by Nikolai Platonovich Ogaryov (1813 - 1877)

Moj drug, tebe chotel by ja
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Moj drug, tebe chotel by ja
  Skazat', čto dušu mučit;
JA znaju, ispoved' moja
  Tebe ved' ne naskučit.
Da tol'ko liš' skazat' choču,
  Kak vdrug v lice ja vspychnu,
Zajmetsja duch, i ja molču
  I golovoj poniknu.

A vse by ja [skazal tebe]1:
  Ljublju il' nenavižu,
Kak ja ne veruju [sud'be]2,
  Kak malo v žizni vižu;
Da stydno žalovat'sja mne,
  A v tom, čto kak-to čudno
Živet v duševnoj glubine,
  Mne vyskazat'sja trudno.
