Gordana Stosljevic – Overwhelming Conviction

“Overwhelming conviction”

‘In the shadowed World we must beautify
find the humble things in us
in each other
sing in the wilderness
twine the seeds of Love
cause by love and only by love
pains become healing.
Nobility shines out,
the plainest face becomes Angel
with wings that enfold you.
I have pledged my vows
to protect you from the swords that can wound you.
Nothing is so gold that lasts eternally;
but I promise you
this love of mine will beat the time.
To tremble
to be swept off your feet
to intensify all the colors
to flutter.
This silent passion making my body burn.
Deeper than the longing
this feeling will never alter,
nor it can be diminished.
It will make a way out of no way;
like a firefly in the night.
I belong to you
You belong to me
this was destined to be
We have found the resilience.’

  1. ‘ Amid the gloom and travail of existence suddenly to behold a beautiful being, and as instantaneously to feel an overwhelming conviction that with that fair form for ever our destiny must be entwined; that there is no more joy than in her/his joy, no sorrow but when she/he grieves; that in her/his sigh of love, in her/his smile of fondness, hereafter is all bliss; this is a lover, and this is Love.’
    ~Benjamin Disraeli ( 1804-1881)
