My Wall - Poem by Cigeng Zhang

I hope my wall
Fully hung with your pictures
Each expression on your face
is my memory clearly on you
from time to time -
I want to have such a wall
Filled with your images
No fancy decoration
Only the peony cloud
Embedded as a frame
Add a picture day by day
On the wall, you showed
from different angles
Happy or sad, perhaps
You didn't look at my eyes
But I know you're looking
for the way back home
I am just under the wall
So close so close so close
I feel my heart is pounding
Constantly to print your film
… your films … on my wall …

    I just read this and a couple of your other poems. There is a sweet sound in every line, with a personal voice that couldn't be mistaken for anyone else's voice. I'm not sure how you do it, because everything you say is simple, and it doesn't seem that you polished it again and again. When I contrast your lines with mine, I feel mine are sometimes overwrought and over-intellectualized, so there is something to learn from you. (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem, Cigeng. Fully reflecting the longing, yearning and nostalgia from the past. The wall in your poem subtlely symbolises the obstacle of being apart, whether due to the distance or other reasons. Have you thought of putting your poem into paras (paragraphs) , or perhaps your reason to have your poem in one stretch is to reflect your feeling? (Report) Reply

    This poem displays an urgency which is so vivid I can feel the impatience of the poet inside myself. I too would want to collapse the distance and time separating me from the person who inspires such a rush of wonderful feelings. And they are wonderful - despite the frustration of being apart. I like the double tone of your poem, that is, the wall of pictures takes care, patience, time to do. But running parallel to these emotions is the wild desire for reunion. The tension between calm waiting and impatient waiting is remarkable. I can especially appreciate this poem because it voices my view of things as well. (Report) Reply
