Oh The Bliss, Oh The Pain! - Poem by YURI DURAAN

Oh the bliss,
oh the pain!

I am swimming in this
ocean, kicking against
the tides but having
no effect
no choice
but to let the currents
take me
all my efforts to swim out
in vain...

Oh the bliss,
oh the pain!

Your voice in my mind
a tearing refrain
of what could be -
an incantation
a prophetic glimpse
into the future of
my doom,
yet also
my heart's gain...

Oh the bliss,
oh the pain!

    Ek wou eers vra waarvan praat jy, maar dink ek verstaan. Ek hou van die ongewone formaat, maar steeds 'n duidelike patroon, selfs as jy net na die hele gedig kyk (sonder om te lees) sien mens steeds 'n prentjie - net soos die rym. (Report) Reply
