පෙම් නොකරන්න මා වැනි අයට

Do not fall in love with people like me.
I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, 
and kiss you in every beautiful place, 
so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.

I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. 
And when I leave, you will finally understand, 
why storms are named after people.
- Caitlyn Siehl


  1. A good one, can't help noticing that this is like the other end of the 'Time doesn't bring relief' you translated earlier...

  2. Love the poem and love your translation. :)
