Spread the love

I PROMISED HER A POEM

 

GOLUB JAŠOVIĆ

 

She came

Somehow from nowhere.

Silently she knelt

By my bedside

 

In an otherworldly voice

A healing voice

Lit up the home.

 

In such a voice

Our mother

Put us to sleep hungry

Me and my brothers

Inventing

A better future.

 

She tried to ask me

And to talk about us…

Are we truly in love

And what do I think about it,

Do we actually need

Such questions

After all?

 

I responded by silence

And she stared at the open window.

That night again there were no stars.

⦁         Look, no stars again, she whispered.

⦁         But there are, I said quietly

 

In my cramped apartment

One star, only just descended

From the Šumarice skyline

Sparkles on my pillow.

 

We kissed sort of fleetingly

And then I clumsily started

To wipe kisses

From the illuminated side of her face

Of long subtle eyebrows

And restless eyelashes

By the locks of her

Dark long hair

Wrought from the moonlight.

 

This morning, again,

I seek her

On the Šumarice horizon

And on my pillow

Where in her absence

A young sun was born.
