Tegla / Jar

! 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.

Random thoughts on totally random people's relationships, I don't even know the female in the story that inspired me, I just heard of her. But that's enough for this one.

Tegla

Našao ju je na drugoj strani zemlje,
ubedio ju je da ga je oduvek volela,
a onda ju je zatvorio u veliku teglu,
spolja polepivši sopstvene portrete.

I on meni kaže da je ljubav jednostavna,
da treba samo da ćutim i slušam,
da se divim i trepćem
i da će neko jednog dana biti moj bog.
Oprosti, prijatelju, odakle ti to da mi treba bog?
Neću ja nikakvog boga.

I ona sad spava, u gradu čudnih isparenja,
a ispod kostiju lobanje joj buja poljsko cveće sa pozlatom.
On je bog, on je bog, ponavljam: bog, bog, bog.

Jar

He found her on the other side of the country,
Convinced her that she's loved him all along,
And then he locked her shut in a large jar,
Having glued portraits of himself from the outside.

And he tells me that love is very simple,
That I should just shut up and listen,
Admire and blink,
And that someday, someone will be my god.
Excuse me, pal, where did you get that I need god?
I don't want any god.

And she's sleeping now, in the city of strange fumes
And inside of her skull bones, meadow flowers covered in gold are growing.
He's god, he's god, I repeat: god, god, god.
