I Remember - Poem by Arta Krasniqi

I remember
Your neck
Red from the sun
And how I would touch it
Just enough to hurt you
And just enough
To calm the burn.

    This is a remarkable poem: you capture in an instant a puzzling aspect of life, that we sometimes cause both harm and healing. Why? Are we so conflicted inside that the negative and the positive must be linked together? I certainly don't know the answer, but when I read your brief poem about a specific example of this I felt what Herman Melville called THE SHOCK OF RECOGNITION. He felt that small events could alert us to large truths, and that is what your small poem did. This all happened in a second or two but it takes time to put into sluggish words. (Report) Reply
