Diary of day

Inside you
the tragedy of pain
waiting to begin
a river trough this life.
when my heart pulse
waithing on the slow pain
need to find my place,
in the diary of day
to live forever
in the notion of pain
waiting for the end.
touching softly,
briefly pain.
no word
no voice
just the sensation
flesh the only reason
we cannot contain.

This was written by me on my cellphone while dancing, the song playing influenced my mood. My mood influenced by external stimuli, and other thingies that is not always safe to talk about openly:)
I found it Sunday Morning and found it kinda moving;)

Wys jou enige iets kan jou inspireer as jy net oplet... 'n Goeie skrywer het eendag vir my gese dat jy altyd n pen en papier saam met jou moet dra en as die inspirasie slaan moet jy dit onmiddelik neerskryf... Jy kan later die legkaart stukke bymekaar sit.
