Infinity

I want the honest taste of cigarettes
To remain in my mouth.
Your gaze is very dear to me;
Your color is desperately important to me.
I am dying when I see what I see,
And I can't sing it for anyone,
I am so afraid to run out of time,
At least to finish something.
 
With frozen fingers
In the absence of hot water.
With slowed down thoughts,
In the absence, of course, of you.
And I will freeze, will shoot in the back,
Select a landmine, and good night!
I didn't do it on purpose, it was just a coincidence
I divined the sign of infinity.
 
Disappointed by the movies,
Enchanted by the sky, are my eyes,
I won't be able to explain
But I am returning.
See me off, and nothing less
Or more than the sound will remain.
But the sound is still the same, like a thread,
And I will remain your friend.
 
With frozen fingers
In the absence of hot water.
With slowed down thoughts,
In the absence, of course, of you.
And I will freeze, will shoot in the back,
Select a landmine, and good night!
I didn't do it on purpose, it was just a coincidence
I divined the sign of infinity.
 
Thanks!

I took some liberties - to make sure the poetry was preserved - so it is not a literal translation. But trying to capture it's spirit.
