It is just like that

Two suns are cooling down – God, I protest! –
One is in the sky, the other in my chest.

How these two suns could my conscience forget?
How these two suns were always driving me mad!

Both cooling now, their rays won’t hurt your eyes!
The one that burned the hottest is the first to die.

Marina Tsvetaeva, 1915
