That Mysterious Connection - Poem by Gert Strydom

That mysterious connection
I have maybe lost somewhere in my humanity
when my darling betrayed me,
that which can bring everything together

and it is only a big simplification
where you are in pain without defence.
That mysterious connection
I have maybe lost somewhere in my humanity

that love circle to the inside,
you cannot really stop the effect
when things go into decline and hurt,
distorting love to a monstrosity:
that mysterious connection.
