A Sinner’s Disguise / Обличье грешника

Forgive me for my wicked side.
The gaping gashes of your soul
Are sin of blade I kept inside
And bared, left the scars to show.
 
I almost push it through your heart,
Letting the pang transfix abruptly.
Cold metal, but my love so hot
Alleviates the tortures subtly.
 
A sinner’s hideous disguise –
Another me embodying devil.
It makes the pure feelings die
And causes gloom in which I revel.
 
Each tear burns me by its flame
That I inspire and provoke.
My inner dark it tries to tame.
All of your pain I cannot soak.
 
Salt drops dissolve my vicious guise,
Letting the monster out of me.
So black, inhuman were the eyes
When I set alter ego free.
 
Your love is healing me in silence
I feel like demons float away.
They’re done with their act of violence,
I’m better off that wicked way.

This is a Russian version of the poem


Прости, что зол бываю я,
Души твоей сквозные раны –
Все грех клинка, что я, храня,
Вдруг обнажил, оставив шрамы.
 
Почти пронзил я твое сердце,
Позволив боли взять контроль.
Металл столь хладен, не согреться,
Страданья вылечит любовь.
 
Обличье грешника презренно
И дьявол частью стал меня.
Могут ли чувства быть нетленны?
Ведь упиваюсь мраком я.
 
И пламя слез лишь опаляет,
Я сам его смог вдохновить.
Оно, быть может, обуздает
Ту тьму, что суждено испить.
 
Порочный облик растворяют
И изгоняют монстра прочь.
В глазах безумья дымка тает
Чтоб альтер-эго превозмочь.
 
В неге любви я исцеляюсь,
Обрекши демонов тонуть.
Над ними праздно возвышаясь,
Я покидаю грешный путь.

Art and love goes together
One cannot do with the other
But when caught up in creativity and love provokes, it becomes unaware to the in innovative what battle goes within the soulish rime

To think that this was originally written in Russian! The poem brings me through the thoughts of the author who has wronged his girlfriend by his misdeeds and now he is sorry and makes up for it! All because of the love for the girl. Beautifully deep!

I really enjoyed this poem. So few people are truly comfortable in the dark.
