Biðröð Mistaka

Aragrúi vonlausra væntinga
eins og óútfyllanlegt eyðublað.
Ótæmandi listi vonbrigða, sjálfsvorkunnar,
vottaður stimpli fyrirlitningar.
 
Dagur sérhver
biðröð mistaka.
 
Reginskari hálfreyndra hugmynda
eins og ástarbréf ofan í tætara.
Ævistarfi raðað í kompuna, neðstu hilluna,
ólesnir rykfallnir doðrantar.
 
Dagur sérhver
biðröð mistaka.
 
Nauðbeygður opnarðu augun,
þú vissir aldrei að ég elska þig – þú varst hatari.
Þrálátur en samt svo þögull,
hrópandinn í eyðimörkinni – þú hataðir.
 
– þú hataðir.

A Line of Mistakes

A multitude of hopeless expectations
like an unfillable form.
An inexhaustible list of disappointments, self-pity,
bears the seal of contempt.
 
Every single day
a line of mistakes.
 
An immense swarm of half-attempted ideas
like a love letter in a paper shredder.
Your life’s work arranged in a storage room, on the lowest shelf,
unread, dusty tomes.
 
Every single day
a line of mistakes.
 
Forced to open your eyes,
you never knew that I love you— you were a hater.
Persistent yet so silent,
the crier in the desert— you hated.
 
— you hated.
