Kristina, ovde Maja / Christina, it’s Maya

! 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.

Many thanks to Jo and Naomi for suddenly getting me to write a p-word that's probably been in my mind for a while. This is a part of a series....probably.

Kristina, ovde Maja

Kristina, ovde Maja,
pitala sam se hoćeš li malo napolje?
Imam nešto što nikad nisi videla,
Odvešće te u najskrivenije morske dubine,
nećeš ni prstom morati da mrdneš,
a bićeš veoma, veoma, veoma mokra.
Moraš da probaš, jednostavno moraš da pokušaš.
samo kreni i zalupi vrata,
i progutaj ključ...
iako će ti možda jednog dana trebati.

Maja, ovde Kristina,
pitala sam se hoćeš li malo napolje
čuvam tajne zalihe blaga na vrhu planine,
uvek mogu da uzjašim talase i da se ne pokvasim
Moram da razbijem ovaj kavez i da krenem
Idem i zaključavam vrata,
ali neću progutati ključ...
iako mi možda više nikad neće trebati.

Christina, it's Maya

Christina, it's Maya
I was wondering if you'd come outside?
I have something you've never seen before
It will take you to the bottom of the sea
And you won't even have to move a toe
But you'll get really, really, really wet
You have to try, you simply have to give it a go
Just go and slam the door
And swallow the key...
Though you might need it someday.

Maya, it's Christina
I was wondering if you'd come outside?
I have secret treasures on the top of a mountain
And a different way to move without moving a toe
I can always ride on waves and not get wet at all
I have to break the cage, I simply have to go
I'll go and lock the door
And I won't swallow the key...
Though I might not need it again.

    Divna je poema! Vrlo ekspresivna. Dopada mi se sama ideja. Tako duboka i mnogo značajna priča ispričana u dvije strofe.
    Mala napomena: "Though" umjesto "Thought".

      Upotrebila si ONU reč...a ja je sve vreme izbegavam, plus ne može da se upotrebi za kratke forme u našem jeziku, jesam li u pravu?

      Inače, hvala na ispravci, ne znam kako mi se u poslednje vreme stalno dešavaju takve gluposti.

        Vjerovatno jesi u pravu, Iva, mada nisam 100% sigurna sada. 🙂 Još se jednom pokazuje da sam izgleda previše pod uticajem engleskog jezika.
        Da, upotrijebila sam ONU riječ. Mislim da je mnogo lijepa, inače. Veoma lijepo zvuči i sviđa mi se ta riječ. Ako te je na bilo koji način iritirala/uvrijedila, izvinjavam se.

          Iritirala? Uvredila? Nikako. Jedino što me ovde vređa je ovaj fensi font koji ne umem da zamenim, kako bih koristila nešto što ima apostrofe.

    Fantastic poem, Iva! This makes me ruminate about my past life. Have a nice Sunday!
