(Y)our love

love

not sure of what I’m feeling

if only you gave me the time
hearts are not for stealing
but maybe I could share mine
we already share our laughter
some hours of our lives
those things also matter
not just straight dives
head-on into the pool
and while I can only slowly sink in
carefully, unlike a fool,
once I’m in the water
I’ll be there through thick and thin

give me time to look at the outside
before I enter your bounds
let me see you, large and wide,
let me hear your sweetest sounds
give me time, grant me longer
understand that time makes me stronger

but if you’re in a hurry
then leave me behind
I’ll watch you run off, blurry
from the tears that make me blind
and in the end,
when you’re almost out of sight,
these words I will send:
goodbye, may your future be bright

Whatever Remains

The remnants of the night tend to linger in my clothes;

the scent of liquor won’t leave my vest,
nor will that girl’s perfume, who was trying her best
my favorite shirt still smells of cigarette smoke,
or the drunken breath of the older bloke
the unsynchronised beats of the music failed to entice me
no sweat seeped into my skirt, I didn’t set myself free
nor did I get lost in the ogling man’s eyes,
turning him down was his most unpleasant surprise
I didn’t come close to anyone’s lips,
that reeked of mistakes and unfortunate slips
I went home with a friend, who remained by my side
kissed him good night, let everything else slide

And the following morning, when only memories remain
I can wash out the proof of their existence, though to me, it’s all the same
Because at least I can make all these disappear,
while you, I cannot
you are always right here
in my mind, never to be forgot

From One To Two

The quiet in my room is bliss
compared to the noise in my head
your name resounds, it’s you I miss
though I should be focusing on me instead

and while I could blast away my thoughts
with music oh so loud
while I could take a million shots
there is one thing I do not doubt

in every single song I’ll hear
I’ll look back on our past year
another glass to my lip, I’ll steer
until you are no longer here
until my mind is blissfully clear

but in case I can’t have a drink or ten
and there is no cure for this disease
I’ll just think about our ‘back when’
and pretend our parting was a breeze

the sounds in my head won’t die down
your smile is etched into my memories
if only I could escape our town
and forget our entire history

but I made a sacrifice for my own good
and while I regret my decision so far
I know
I hope one day I’ll be where I should
and look back fondly on that healed up scar

Home

hands

Tonight I won’t go home
unless I reside in your embrace
and breathe at ease at last

Tonight I won’t go home
unless your eyes mine will trace
and drown in them fast

Tonight I won’t go home
unless your voice speaks my name
and echoes within my chest

Tonight I won’t go home
unless I enter your game
and treat losing as a fest

Tonight I won’t go home
it’s something I can’t do
Tonight I won’t go home
unless home is you

The Wild West (Unfinished)

Prison Walls

On this island, with the ocean as prison walls.
The waves rush to the shore.

I am watching them slam into the merciless cliffs,
preventing me from escaping this endless bore.

It is light blue in the warm and sunny daylight.
It reflects the light beams
like the eyes of children. A starry sky on earth,
as they light me up by one thousand million.

And in the gloomy moonlight it turns bottle green.
The orange lights dimming,
sounds of the waves killing this peaceful summer night,
and the rocking fishing boats restfully clinging.

I take a walk alone down the beautiful bay.
The ocean calls my name.
Unable to resist it, I take off my clothes,
and I dip into this breathtaking midnight frame.

All of a sudden, I’m not feeling imprisoned.
Cleansed from my discontent,
I thank the walls protecting my beautiful home,
and I hear it swell as a replying consent
