Hide-And-Seek

Vasko Popa

 Next Poem          

Someone hides from someone else
Hides under his tongue
The other looks for him under the earth

He hides on his forehead
The other looks for him in the sky

He hides inside his forgetfulness
The other looks for him in the grass

Looks for him looks
There's no place he doesn't look
And looking he loses himself

    Wow, this poem by Vasko Popa is so deep! I can't believe just a few lines can make me feel like there's so much meaning hidden in it. I came across this while doing homework and honestly it made me stop and think about all the bigger stuff happening in life. Popa's words are powerful and this one's surely gonna stuck in my head for awhile.
