na krawędzi mijania
nie ma pocałunków
nie ma zapachów
ani kolorów

na krawędzi mijania
wąskie światło ciemnieje
i brzeg tak wyraźnie
urywa się – ból

on the edge of passing
there are no kisses
there are no smells
or colors

on the edge of passing
the narrow light darkens
and so clearly
the land ends – the pain
