So, I have about 15 poems so far. Lately, I've been thinking about translating those into English, which is kind of a new experience for me. The main thing is that in Russian or Ukrainian (both are my native languages) poems do rhyme. If it has no rhyme - it's not a poem. I've been reading lots of poems in English lately, and it seems to me that those poems were more about expressing yourself than rhyming. Unfortunately, as far as English is my third language, the only thing I could do was a direct translation, so, while reading, keep in mind that in the original language (Russian) these poems do rhyme, and look slightly different. Still, I want to hear from you, guys, if it looks like a poem you would expect to read in English. Please, comment below, and thank you!

I want to write you poems, 

To read your precious smile and your warm gaze

There's nothing I could care about more

Then waiting for the sound of your footsteps.

 

You'll say: "I'm here!", and comfort me with a smile

I'll barely touch your lips with a silent thrill

And for once in a while, I'll stop running vicious circles

And will completely become one with your breath

 

I only wish I could hold your glance

The moment! Stop at least for a second!

I'm deadly-lonely without you, and hence

The prisoner won't escape from his prison.

 

I want to write you poems...

And for the hundredth time to say - love you!

And live my life for you, with you,

So I can listen to your footsteps every day...

 

I want to write you poems...
