Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

Moments Of Such Great Rapture Must Be Sin


as the depths of love we do enter in
to know you so intimate there must be trust
finding a kind of beauty deeper than skin

like the first time an eagle is flying,
something more than just touching
as you leap into the waiting abyss,
straining against how life really is.
