I found this while I was looking for a poem of a Swedish/Danish woman poet, and I liked it. It's so simple but there is something powerful in it. :)

"Säg till om jag stör,"
sa han när han steg in,
"så går jag meddetsamma."
"Du inte bara stör,"
svarade jag,
"du rubbar hela min existens.
Välkommen."

- Eeva Kilpi​

The translation would be something like this:

"Tell me if I'm disturbing you,"
he said when he came in,
"then I will go immediately."
"You are not only disturbing me,"
I replied,
"you are disturbing my whole existence.
Welcome."​

Ah! Existentialist poetry! Lovely! Even if one chooses to exist in isolation then this is already chosen in relation to others; only a being whose very way of being belongs to other could choose to be alone, or even be lonely.

Terrific blog, I mean it and not simply in a "you flatter my blog, I'll flatter yours" kind of way. :) You should update more often.
