5 Self-translations by Albena Todorova

By | 1 November 2019

Translations edited by Momchil Milanov

you say don’t cry

tears are a sign of weakness 
saying you think only of yourself
I reply I am not crying 
it’s just that god inside me leans on the human
it gets damp where they touch 

just like when water and wall
just like when heat and cold
just like when baby and world
just like when you and I 

не плачи казваш
сълзите са слабост и признак
че мислиш само за себе си
не плача отговарям
просто господ в мен се опира в човека
и по ръбовете избива влага
както когато вода и стена
както когато жега и студ
както когато бебе и свят
както когато ти и аз
