Shadow Swallows Shine / La sombra traga brillo / Rondini ombra brillare



A quiet, rainy day in Denver
Thin pane of glass keeps me dry
You told me you would be back whenever
Never even heard me ask you why

This was going to be the day
Up all night
To hear what you would say
All filled up with joy and a hint of fright
Rehearsed it endlessly in my mind
Until I thought I had it right

All those conversations
Every bright, shining plan we made
True blue love without cessation
Hand in hand, so unafraid

But as I lay upon the carpet
And the sparkles reach my gaze
Of the ring right where it landed
When you dropped it as if ablaze
The questions gnaw my heart 
And my eyes they match the sky

As I think
That one day your heart might change
The claws deeply sink
For you exist no longer
How did I not see you
Standing on the brink
How did you seem
So much stronger
Did she ever say a word
Did it simply lie there unheard?

Thunder shakes the whole foundation
My fist pounds red upon the floor
A day born to be a celebration
Now a crippling day of mourn
As a cloak of darkness
Snuffs out the diamond shine
And turns my heart to hardness
For she never will be mine



Un día tranquilo y lluvioso en Denver
El cristal fino me mantiene seco
Me dijiste que volverías cuando
Ni siquiera me escuché preguntarte por qué

Este iba a ser el día
Despierto toda la noche
Escuchar lo que dirías
Todos llenos de alegría y un toque de miedo
Lo ensayé sin cesar en mi mente
Hasta que pensé que lo tenía bien

Todas esas conversaciones
Cada plan brillante y brillante que hicimos
Amor verdadero azul sin cesar
De la mano, sin miedo

Pero mientras me tumbaba sobre la alfombra
Y los destellos alcanzan mi mirada
Del anillo justo donde aterrizó
Cuando lo dejó caer como si estuviera en llamas
Las preguntas roen mi corazón
Y mis ojos coinciden con el cielo

Como pienso
Que un día tu corazón podría cambiar
Las garras se hunden profundamente
Porque ya no existe
Como no te vi
De pie en el borde
Como te pareció
Mucho mas fuerte
¿Alguna vez dijo una palabra
¿Simplemente se quedó allí sin escuchar?

El trueno sacude toda la fundación
Mi puño rojo en el suelo
Un día nacido para ser una celebración
Ahora un día mutilado de llorar
Como un manto de oscuridad
Snuffs el brillo de diamantes
Y vuelve mi corazón a la dureza
Porque ella nunca será mía



Un tranquillo, giorno di pioggia a Denver
pannello sottile di vetro mi tiene a secco
Mi hai detto che si sarebbe di nuovo ogni volta che
Mai sentito parlare mi chiedo perché

Questo sarebbe stato il giorno
Sveglio tutta la notte
Per ascoltare quello che si potrebbe dire
Tutti pieni di gioia e un pizzico di paura
Provato all'infinito nella mia mente
Fino a quando ho pensato che aveva ragione

Tutte quelle conversazioni
Ogni luminoso, splendente piano abbiamo fatto
Il vero amore blu senza interruzione
Mano nella mano, così senza paura

Ma mentre giacevo sul tappeto
E le scintille raggiungano il mio sguardo
Del diritto anello dove è atterrato
Quando caduto come se in fiamme
Le domande rosicchiare il mio cuore
E i miei occhi corrispondono al cielo

Come penso
Che un giorno il vostro cuore potrebbe cambiare
Gli artigli profondamente affondano
Per te non esistono più
Come ho fatto a non vedo
In piedi sul bordo
Come hai fatto ti sembra
Tanto più forte
Ti ha mai detto una parola
Ha semplicemente giacciono lì inaudito?

Thunder scuote l'intero fondamento
Il mio pugno sterline rosso sul pavimento
Una giornata nata per essere una celebrazione
Ora un giorno di lutto paralizzante
Come un manto di oscurità
Snuffs la brillantezza di diamanti
E trasforma il mio cuore alla durezza
Per lei non sarà mia

what a beautiful and touching poem! Sad, but beautiful nevertheless. Often in life, we lose those we love, one way or the other, and it is always hard.
