K?ma? k?mayam?nassa,
tassa ce ta? samijjhati, addh? p?timano hoti.
Laddh? macco yadicchati.
Tassa ce -- k?may?nassa, chandaj?tassa -- jantuno

Listen

If one, longing for sensual pleasure,
achieves it, yes, one's enraptured at heart.
The mortal gets what one wants.
But if for that person -- longing, desiring --
the pleasures diminish,
one's shattered, as if shot with an arrow.
