I Cannot Avoid You - Poem by Gert Strydom

I cannot avoid you, keep you from my thoughts
whatever I think about; you are still clinging there
and in me you stay,
I am never free from you
and I see your eyes looking at me.

Sometimes you pass in the street
and I cannot trust my feelings,
at other times I see you driving past,
I cannot avoid you.

Sometimes it feels as if this sensation wants to abate
until somewhere again I behold you
and then I know that you are in me,
that I really want to see you again,
I cannot avoid you.
