Maid Čorbić‘s poem: The consequences of former love

she ran away from me

as if it had happened yesterday

that love we shared equally

hopes and silences left

for some better and more beautiful times

nothing sacred has survived in me yet

but I hope to have you always

and being friend is a better option

than to be warriors all our lives

because it builds a very bad home

destiny is quartz and worthless

when I have you, it’s best in everything somehow

which longing gives new impetus to my existence

and that with laughter I give myself a motive to go further

no one can be like me

the henchmen of former love hurt me

though I tell the world that it is good

and I can’t lie to myself anymore

for it hurts me from the bosom of the soul

the fact is that love is hard

emerald and strange in nature

it makes me ask myself

where my lifestyle remained

when I’m still lost in the game without francs

and I believe the gift god is sending me

for destiny is a strong, solid backbone and bulwark

which when I am wounded early I cross

and I don’t look at anything around me anymore

because I am finally a free type of man

memories hurt

time goes back

years count tiny hours

for mistakes it is too late

repentance remains self-said

because the other person now

happy is my escape
