Sacred Kiss of Our Souls / Сакральный поцелуй наших душ

My girl, I love you so much.
You let me out of my ivory tower.
Explosions that follow your touch
Stir up the blood with weird power.

When you are close enough to me,
When I can feel your frequent breath,
An angel rouses inside of me
And wings split clouds that I pass.

I'd soar up towards the skies
To thank God for I met you once
And ask him not to let our ties
Get ruined due to decadence.

I cannot see you mutely crying:
It makes my angel cry as well.
The pain your mind's been denying
Is leading me through flames of hell.

Your tears are like sharpest needle –
They're stabbing in my bare skin.
Immediately I become so feeble,
Compassion gulfs me from within.

My palm can desiccate your eyes
Bathing in bounteous, pure liquid.
Past indiscretions I despise
Declaring myself convicted.

This love that pushes me to crime,
Making it easy to commit a sin.
Our souls' alliance gets sublime
We let their sacred kiss begin.

This is a Russian version of this poem

Люблю тебя я страстно, нежно,
Касанья будоражат кровь.
Но на душе так безмятежно -
Ее окутала любовь.

Когда ко мне ты очень близко,
Твое дыханье слышу я,
И ангел, павший слишком низко,
Взлетает в райские края.

Я взмыл бы в небеса за ним,
Чтоб Бога поблагодарить.
Ведь вместе терпко мы горим
В огне, что хочется вкусить.

Мне горько видеть твои слезы,
Мой ангел плачет в унисон.
Боль обволакивает грезы,
Те издают агонии стон.

Слеза что острая игла
Вонзается в нагую кожу.
Меня страданьям предала,
Глубины старых ран встревожив

Ладонь осушит твои очи -
Омытые, они чисты.
Я б созерцал их в свете ночи,
Сжигая прошлого мосты.

Любовь толкает к преступленью,
К греху, который оклеймит.
Но наших душ альянс нетленный
Сакральный поцелуй скрепит.
