Two more

! This post was written long ago. What you're reading is not necessarily how I feel about things in 2016. This blog was started by an 18-year-old in 2001. Please, keep that in mind before you freak out.

Ravine

There she goes again,
And she's never learned anything
She never realised she's wrong.
New page,
That's just a hypothesis,
Something she doesn't really want to do.

Nothing I'd saymakes sense to her
Because it turns to something else in her mind
And falls into a bottomless ravine
Where there's no echo.

Matté

What can I do when I'm matté
I simply can't and won't shine
Nor it does really attract me.

I am just a simple isotope,
Not the one that's blindingly bright,
Not the one completely distracting you.

If I'd bring you the Atlantis
That's nothing.
That's really nothing
When the great XYZ has got new shoes.

They're glossy, they're the commets,
I am just a little white dwarf,
Who is occasionally a hypnotical pendulum
It'll come to you when you're sad
It'll hold your hand
It'll jump to hug you
It'll tell you that it adores you
But it'll always be matté.

Mat

Šta ja tu mogu kad sam mat?
Jednostavno ne umem da sijam
Niti me to mnogo privlači.

Ja sam samo prost izotop,
a ne onaj zaslepljujuće blistav,
koji ti pažnju odvlači.

Ako bih ti izronila Atlantidu,
to nije ništa.
To stvarno nije ništa.
Pa veliki ABC ima nove cipele!

Oni su glanc, oni su komete,
ja sam samo beli patuljak,
koji je povremeno hipnotički visuljak,
on će ti doći kad si tužna,
on će te držati za ruku,
on će ti skočiti u zagrljaj,
on će ti reći da te obožava,
ali on će uvek biti mat

Jaruga

Evo je opet
i nikad ništa nije naučila
nikad nije mislila da greši.
Novi list,
pa to je hipoteza,
nešto na šta ne bi da se reši.

Sve što joj kažem smisla nema,
jer biva izmenjeno u njenom uhu,
i bespovratno pada u jarugu
gde nema eha.

    Uh, great work! I so suck at poetry. I am better at prose, much better.

    I have a friend who is the glossy and the blindingly bright. And I feel so much like the white dwarf when I'm around her.

    There's nothing wrong in being matté, I've discovered. Because the gloss gets annoying in a relatively short while. It does, really.

    I'm overwhelmed with the power these poems moved me. I know you have great poems, but these two? they moved me more than some you might consider better. 🙂

    ...treći put, a možda i više, ulazim da pročitam ovo. Volim te pesme koje pišeš i koje si pisala, Iva. Po njima bih mogla da te prepoznam u najvećoj gomili. 🙂
