Nexus - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

I have seen the longest swing bridge
And the deepest flowing stream underneath,
Anyhow I have to cross that I know.
But how can I let go my loved ones?
The attachment is a suffering that I know,
But they all grabbed me and I have no strength
And the know-how to let loose the massive knot.
Though it's an inferno yet I feel the coolness of souls.

    You express you pain with such clarity and poignancy - the swing bridge is a perfect metaphor for its vastness. To find the loving detachment - how difficult it always is. A sad and honest poem. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxx (Report)Reply

    Sad in any language or culture. But also very worthy of a ten as well. Take care.

    Wishing you a better tomorrow,

    As always,

    Sandra
