Enough

I may be not like all the others
with their perfect pictures,
perfect art
I’m like the wind
and blow my words
into a poem
without knowing in advance
how they will land

I’m not the others
but I’m me
Enough to fit
perfectly into your heart

Harmony

I look up to let my eyes fly
along with birds
I sing a song
and let my fingers
dance on strings
I think of you and let poetry
well up in me
to find harmony
in chords, in words, in love
when in and around me
it seems a shaky mess

Homecoming

And I come home
after a strenuous day
I turn the key,
open the door
sit down, sigh,
think of you
and come home
to love

And then outside
there may be chaos
it may storm, rain
and thunder,
in my heart
I’m warm and safe
with you

Full

In a dark night
when eyes miss
and distance hurts
I go within
into the sacred temple
of the soul
where we are always
in each other’s arms
where we dance together
throughout eternity
And I let the love and light
that we share
penetrate every cell of my body
Until I float among the stars
and I’m as full and bright
as the moon
Full of me and you

I See Us

It’s not always easy to see
more than other people can see
to see beyond horizons,
beyond time, form, stories and pain
To see light in all its colours
but to also see uncomfortable shadows
But whatever I see,
whatever truths my third eye
may reveal,
in the midst of all of it
I always see me and you

Lullaby

In the silent cold winter night
pain thunders in the head
and wakes up too many thoughts
The body lies still
and the heart sings a soft lullaby
that all is safe and well
that there is love, there is us
to put pain and thoughts to sleep

Smiling Sun

Sun, why are you smiling
when I walk here in sadness
and yearning
Is it because you see the bigger
picture high up there in the sky?
Is it to tell me not to look back
but to keep moving forward
and to let what’s ahead shine
brightly in my face
as you melt the snow for me
and clear my path

Confetti

King Winter seems to celebrate
snowflakes whirl down from heaven
like confetti
as if he knows what and who
is in my heart
that after the cleansing cold
one day spring will heat things
up again
as underneath ice and snow
dreams have already been sown

Warmth

Nightmares come at night
like hyenas from all corners
to catch their prey
and bring the ghosts of the past
back to life
even when I open my eyes
I can still see them
And while I listen to a freezing cold
snow storm that rages
around the house
I crawl deep under the covers,
under the warmth of our love
to find back my dreams of the future

Heartbeat

There’s always a beat under my poetry
that makes every word dance,
every word swing
sometimes, it’s a calm rhythm
slow dancing
other times, it’s on fire
running up and high
One beat for two
or a melancholic sway
Head banging, tiptoeing or discoing
Sure is, it always beats for you

On Our Cloud

My fairy man,
sit here with me
on our cloud
and around us
we watch the rain,
we watch the storm,
the thunder
unfolding
whereas as we entwine
as we make love
on our cloud
we shine it heavenly
upon the world
we together
make the fireworks,
make a rainbow

Hurt

Hurt can be like a hurricane
blind rage that tears
everything down
my heart, my words helpless
unappreciated,
unrecognized
scattered
in a thousand pieces
all around me
but when I look at them
one by one
I still read their love poem
for you
