So I am sitting here, with my bowl of Reese’s Puffs , listening to my emo station on slacker.com and probably getting burns on my thighs from my laptop, trying not to think of the past. I’ve been trying to just think of the future lately. But I am not sure what will happen in the future so my mind always drifts back to the past. I don’t like thinking back because I maybe over thinking back to that day but when I think back to anytime not just that day you’re always in it. I keep telling myself I am over it and this is best, but honestly if I would have known that being with him would ruin our friendship and three weeks after we were together he wouldn’t be talking to me anymore I wouldn’t have said yes. I would have just been the friend instead of the girlfriend. I wouldn’t have felt the way I did or still do.

There’s a poem by Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin. It’s called I loved you. We learned it in our Russian. Personally I think the Russian version is beautiful.

You can listen to it at this website.

Я вас любил: любовь еще, быть может
В душе моей угасла не совсем;
Но пусть она вас больше не тревожит;
Я не хочу печалить вас ничем.
Я вас любил безмолвно, безнадежно,
То робостью, то ревностью томим;
Я вас любил так искренно, так нежно,
Как дай вам бог любимой быть другим.

It means:

I loved you, and I probably still do,

And for a while the feeling may remain…

But let my love no longer trouble you,

I do not wish to cause you any pain.

I loved you; and the hopelessness I knew,

The jealousy, the shyness – though in vain –

Made up a love so tender and so true

As may God grant you to be loved again.

  1. You can definitely tell it’s translated, it doesn’t really sound right to me in English. I almost want to learn the Cyrillic alphabet to read it. But no matter what language, the message remains.

    Now that I read it over again, the English doesn’t seem too bad…

  2. Статья – просто супер, было

    бы неплохо найти кого-нибудь, кто мог бы мне объяснить все

    тонкости.
    (Article – it is simple super, was

    Not bad to find somebody who could explain to me all

    Subtleties.)
