SMS poetry, based on a Latin poem by Catullus:

Odi et amo. Quare id faciam, fortasse requiris.
Nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.

Catullus (Carmina, lxxxv), 60 BC

A possible translation in normal English is:

I hate and I love. Why I do so, you may well ask.
I do not know, but I feel it happen and am in agony.


Slightly different translations can be found as well, if someone has a better suggestion please let me know.
