Sometimes I Want To Flee From Abstract Things Like Love - Poem by Gert Strydom

When deep in the shadows
of the dark night I do drown,
there are lights that here and there do wink
and I do know a kind of unknown fear
that it will never be as now again with us;
above me some stars shine brightly,
in the distance people are frolicking
and I wonder if I will again find love in your gaze?
Sometimes I want to flee from abstract things like love,
and live for the moment that I am experiencing
but still you stay here right against me;
people bring me back to you,
and this keeps me from lurching unexpectedly into things
and my whole life, my very best you do remain.
