Sing a song for me. Write a song about me. Remember what we had and preserve it for eternity.
Hidden in your mind, I’ll stay. For no one to see. For no one to know.
Feel me in your soul. I’ll stay there. A memory. For no one to see. For us to know.
I wander through the night. Awake while the world is asleep. For no one to see. For you to know.
It’s all in the way you made me feel.
Release your grip from my heart
You’re crushing me
Not stopping until I fall apart.
Release your power over me
I’m not a puppet on a string
I can’t find happiness on my knees.
Release me. Release me. Release me.
Set me free.
First one for a book called Whispers of Hope:
It is an ongoing collection of poetry.
It’s a book callen Burnt Wood
Short pieces of poetry, thoughts and flash fiction can be read here. Once in a while a piece of music is added to a particular piece… I hope you listen to them and find something new that you’ll like 🙂
I hope you enjoy them,
Thank you and have a great week
But not broken
But not bleeding
But not smiling
But not crying
But not speaking
But not hiding
But not them
But not there
But not inside
But filled with emotions
But not sleeping
But full of passion
But not when you are there.
I can’t because this is real and I am not asleep.
The best part of a poem I wrote tonight 🙂
Inside this grey and black vessel is a lot of colour
I tend to forget it’s there, but it is bursting out the cracks
I am a rainbow hidden in a cloud
Let me rain
Let me shine
Let me show you who I really am.
I cover your black with my colour
And paint your night away
Until I used it all and I am back to my usual grey.
Share your colour with me
Make it rain
Make me shine
And show them who I really am.
We will paint the grey away;
I felt your kisses and wanted more
But there was blood on your hands
You killed my heart and buried my soul.
No one will have me after we are through
And while I was damaged when we met
I am broken now that you left.
I look at the approaching pavement;
You killed me with your love.
I should not have given in to sin
But I was weak
For you, I would have been everything
I am gone.
This love has died
But there will be redemption and I will be born again.
Shiny and new,
And not there for you.
There is always a little spark of light in the darkness and there is always a small shadow in the light.
This thought is what’s keeps me powering on in the dark days.
I woke up surrounded by water
And I was drowning within
My soul was floating on sins;
My thoughts became darker.
I was not prepared for two years later
Pushing and pulling – twin-flame.
I wish there was a way to feel safer,
But there has to be a loser in every game.
This time it’s me; next time it’s you;
That’s the beauty and the failure of us two.
There was an earthquake in my soul
I am stirred and shaken
Some parts of my walls crumbled
Some parts of my heart lie hidden underneath falling debris
There was a soulquake in my earth
My view is tearing up and blurry
Some parts of my world can never be rebuilt
Some parts of my inner self are left forever changed.
I have the most horrible handwriting 😉
I am right when I turn left
I am left when I am right
I sleep in my dreams
And dream when I am asleep
I cry when I laugh
And laugh when I cry
I am invisible when I am here
And here when I’m invisible
I am here when I am there
And there when I am here
I make no sense when I write
And I write non-sense
I listen to your whisper
And whisper when I listen
I do all and am nothing
I do nothing and am all
Two sides to every story
Two stories for every side.
The flame that heats your frozen heart
The thought that brings you through the night
The stars that guide your way in the dark
The song that keeps your soul alight
The shoulder you lean on
The ear you whisper into
The love of your life
The one who fits profoundly
… That’s who I am to you.
(Or the one I want to be for you)
For dim minds
The mute screaming at the deaf
The blind leading the blind
And in this chaos we are expected to stay sane.
Ghost of the Night.
And when I said that I would not be leaving
I had one foot out of the door.
There was no way to start the healing
with you lying on my floor.
Your sweet scent and your honey words
Are sticky on my skin.
You want the best of both worlds
But never asked if I was in.
And as the years passed
And my love slowly faded away
Our kisses became chaste
While you whispered in your sleep ‘please stay’.
I can’t be who I am not
Even though I might not know who stares at me through the mirror
I miss who I was
If I could just remember it clearer.
I’ll have to let you go
Before I’m ready to return
Before I can admit to know
Before my soul stops to burn.
I see you lying where I left you
And bend down for a kiss
In this moment I understand our truth
It doesn’t have to be perfect to be bliss.
Without you, too many parts of me are empty
Too many thoughts are left unthought
An angel that heavens sent me
To create our very own smut.
Yes, it is boring when you are not here
And my arms are cold
When you are not near.
I promise, I am fully yours again to have and to hold.
Forever is for never
And we both know it well
And maybe it is most clever
If we keep this between us; promise to never tell.
My naked soul molds perfectly against yours
We waited for hours and a day
Now we are too close
To what we want to run away.
Lies and lines
Written and told
As long as the sun shines (on us)
Our love will be gold.
Open eyes and open heart
The storm is you.
My breath of life belongs to you.
But I claim it back
I need it too.
Roughed up by the wind
Bruised in hidden places.
The cloud is you.
My tears are yours.
But I claim them again.
I need them for myself too,
For I am the sun and the light and the moon and the stars…
I am the beauty, high up in the sky.
It comes in waves
Whispers of hope
Taking seed inside my mind.
More and more.
Whispers of hope
A flower in bloom
A sun rising in the sky
A song sung out of tune
A smile, for no reason.
Whispers of hope.
My hands are tied
My mind is lost
As I run naked through the night
And surrender to the frost.
There is no place for you
No trust to give
It was never about us two
But, I will live.
Let me freeze for now,
My heart will thaw soon
I will go on somehow
And send our love to the moon.
For years you darkened my thoughts
Please allow me some happiness too.
Feel some pain over my loss
And remember how my life and love used to be just for you.
Words and pages written, all meant for you
But they stayed silent and unread,
We know it is true.
“Everything is okay,” you said.
As the frost on my face turns into tears,
I mourn what we never were
But I will not regret our years.
Even with you never really being there.
One last kiss to make me breathe again
One last kiss to say goodbye
One last kiss to keep me sane
One last kiss before I learn to fly.
Gently put your teeth in me
Devour me from within
All is lost
As if I had never been.
There was a moment when all she ever wanted was to be remembered. Now, she began to wonder if being forgotten wasn’t a better choice. Remembering someone was too often linked with painful thoughts. She wanted more for the people she loved. They deserved better than her.
I wish you were here to take away my fear
Knowing that you are just around the corner
A touch and a swipe on the screen away
Today, I need you to be here in my ear
I need to hear your voice, your words
Just for me and for you; you and me and you
Your guidance would help me through this struggle
Giving away my thoughts and my control
I feel this mind is losing a battle again
But I don’t dare to get in touch with you
I can’t burden you with my egoism
I wish you were here to take away this fear
I stand in a corner afraid to fall apart My dress comes undone at its seams And the truth seeps in. Your hands cover my heart They must be feeling the distress. Don’t leave. I look at you the moment I wake I feel as if I am standing in a corner My legs don’t know any way out And the truth seeps in. Your eyes bore into my soul They must feel what I am not saying. Please leave. And the leaves fall from the trees And the rain pours out of the clouds And we don’t know in which direction to go. And the truth seeps in.
