Behind These Words

Do you see me
In this castle in the clouds
Behind walls that are so thick
I can’t even see myself

Do you see me
When your hand is out of reach
Your eyes are out of sight
And miles away
There are your feet

Do you see me
When I dissolve in mist
When I am lost in love
And I am the one
I don’t want to be with

Do you see me
When ears are been deceived
As my mouth speaks
A language differently
Than my heart had wished to speak

Do you see me
Here
Behind these words

As Long As I drive

As long as I drive
I’ll go nowhere
Nothing to reach
Nothing to leave behind
As there is so much to lose

Headlights guide
Into fleeting dreams
The shades along the road
Can just be passed by

Hands hold the wheel
My heart holds you
As long as I drive
I’ll have you in front of me

The Wolf

I am the lonesome wolf of the forrest.
I can’t be caught
But my eyes catch everything.
My heart loyal to my beloved other one.
He whom I can see
when I look into water mirrors.
The moon is my ally.
She reflects on me
what I reflect on her.
And when she is at full strength
I cry out to her
Bathe in her pure light
Purge what is inside
Let her lighten my ways
When I wander
through dark nights
and gone days
Here in the forrest
of lost souls

Catwoman

There is a new cat in my garden. I don’t know where she comes from or to whom she belongs.

When I hung the laundry out on the line, she watched me from underneath the raspberry bush.
Later on I had a coffee in the garden and then we watched each other and I wondered: Who is observing whom?

I am a catwoman.

I wander through this world,

Look and observe,

Make myself invisible yet present.

I can lay me down somewhere

But can leave any minute.

I can be anywhere

and nowhere.

I heard the bees zooming around the roses, heard the sound of pigeons. A blue sky with white clouds passing by.
Me, the cat, the surrounding: it was peaceful and in harmony. We both had our own spot, our own space, kept and honoured the distance between us, yet very aware of each other’s presence.

Till the cat got tired of watching catwoman. And then she just slowly raised herself, turned around and showed me her butt.

Inspiration

She is still with me: Inspiration. She gently breathes the words into me. This white angel, does she come from heaven or from hell?
And now she even keeps me out of my sleep.

I ask her to leave, I don’t want her near me here. I tell her to go bother someone else.
This heart drown in pain doesn’t want to swim to the surface no more.
But she is still there, she smiles and invites me into her space.

I put my hands over my ears.
I don’t want to hear the words she blows to me.
I close my eyes.
I don’t want to see her flowing source of light.
I cover my heart.
I don’t want to feel how her touch has opened it.
But even then she is still there.

I tell her I can’t do it. I can’t do what she asks of me.
But she only smiles and then slowly whispers in my ear:

Write… just write
