The Rose / Poem by Joanna Kalinowska

Poem by Joanna Kalinowska

 

The Rose

it hurts involuntarily
proud of its beauty
it forgets the thorny stem
I wanted to open the door for you
but you have me point
instinctively a step backwards
the fear of pain

nothing hurts so much
like a words

 

Róża

zadaje ból bezwiednie
dumna ze swej piękności
zapomina o kolczastej łodydze
chciałam otworzyć ci drzwi
lecz mnie ukłułeś
odruchowo się cofnełam
strach przed bólem

nic tak nie boli
jak słowa

 

La rosa

fa male involontariamente
fiera della sua bellezza
si dimentica del gambo spinoso
volevo aprirti la porta
ma mi hai punto
istintivamente un passo indietro
la paura del dolore

niente fa più male
come le parole.
