Silence of Space
silence of space
completes the longing
Days that were,
are within it.
In the maze of memories,
she found the mistakes she had made.
She always expected
a beginning, that something, someone…
she is enjoying the moment
when she can answer
It no longer requires courage.
She has grown up to such words.
she said for years,
now everything has changed.
Dni, które były,
są w niej.
W labiryncie wspomnień,
odnalazła popełnione błędy.
początku, że coś, że komuś…
cieszy się chwilą,
w której bezkarnie
To nie wymaga już odwagi.
Dorosła do takich słów.
mówiła przez całe lata,
teraz wszystko się zmieniło.
