different sentiments


 silence3

You are sharing my sorrows – I am, in my heart, ashamed;

Till when, with my false sorrows, will I give you this pain.

 

You indeed are overcome with fidelity – swirling with desire;

I am mourning the loss of yearning – I will go mad.

 

Rejoice not in winning me – I am but a regret;

I will lose, sulk forever; I will gain, I will regret

 

The time of companionship is fine, but I feel:

You indeed will stay with me – I will be left alone

 

At dusk sometimes, it is as though the heart is sinking;

Love me not to this extent – I may die.

 

Let love, on reaching any stage, not be so carefree;

On bed I will now lie – and fall asleep as soon as I lie.

 

*Jaun Elia
