The music is quite unpleasant. Vocals are thinny and flooded. My (genuine and friendly) recommendation: stop making music for a while, go out, take a walk, look at the beauties of nature, and come back, refreshed and ready to express something new and a tad more musical. Not only because it would help your audience enjoying your work, but before all else, it would certainly help you, too.

If you like Baudelaire, and even though the music was not made on purpose, and the vocal tricks not totally convincing, this try found on YouTube appears nonetheless way more to the point, IMHO:

Pour se donner, la poésie a besoin d'espace et de silence, une aire de jeu, un instant suspendu, dans lesquels offrir ses baisers, griffures et soupirs.

This. Build it up, tear it down. Add rests or pauses. Make some parts quieter/less busy. Have the climax the loudest. If the track is always at 100%, the track is also always at 10%. A scale of measurement has no meaning if it has no range.
