Throw Me A Line

If I get off track
and get lost in my fears and thoughts
Can you please pull me back
and throw me a line
By a prayer, a song,
By a kiss blown in the wind
By a wave of love you send my way
By the thought of me
Just pull me on my heart string
Back on track and back to you

A Session With Myself

Since I work as a psychologist
I thought, well, let’s analyze myself
For I have this issue
That I think all the time about you
That I write all those poems
My heart that beats, bursts
and longs like crazy
And I have these strong and deep emotions
I did an intake interview,
observed my own behaviour,
asked a hundred questions,
I reflected, empathized
I took the DSM-V, the handbook
of all the mental disorders
But I could not find a box
I could be fitted in
So then I gave myself the diagnosis
that I am just madly in love with you

A Scientific Research

I did a scientific research on
the love I feel for you
In an objective and unbiased manner
I tested the hypothesis ‘I love you’
I did a literature review of my poems
and wrote a theoretical framework
I did an observation of my heart
I systematically collected the data,
analyzed them
And then came to the conclusion
Now it is scientifically proven
that I love you

Family

Sparrow and robin,
sitting there on the branches
Cats that are lying in my garden
Bees on the flowers
Butterflies that are fluttering
before my eyes,
My kindred spirits,
You my beloved,
Do you want to be my family,
my true tribe
To which I can belong?

Spring And Winter At The Same Time

And I walk on the path
through the woods
Where I once walked with you
It was Winter then
Bare trees bowed for us

And now, it is Spring
A roof of green leaves
above my head
It’s almost like
I hear your voice
And see you next to me
in your warm winter coat
How I want to put
my arm in yours
And wish this road
will never end

As my feet walk in Spring
my mind wanders in Winter

Mathematics

I took the two variables
‘I love you’ and ‘I miss you’
to measure if there is
a statistical relationship
between them
I quantified and counted
Used the formula
and found
a correlation coefficient of 1
which means
it is mathematically proven
the more I love you
the more the ‘I miss you’ variable
will increase

Yes Now

Where are we, my love
Did the light catch us
When we held hands
I looked at you
You said ‘yes now’
And we jumped
together
into the unknown

I see white all around us
Like a blank page
on which a new story
is eager to start
And its main characters
just both came alive

Flowers Of Love And Hope

At the end of the day
I walk in our garden of love
with a watering can
full of thoughts, songs and poetry

And I do not want to water
the weeds of fear, of doubt
and confusion
But I water and nurture
the flowers of love and hope

What you give your attention to
grows
What we focus on we get more of

Featherlight

Make your heart as light as a feather
Free it from any burden,
from any ties to the past
Let pure light flow into it
And let it cleanse
All the sadness, the resentment
All what made it heavy
and afraid of love
Let it again dance on the wind
As your heart was never meant
to stay on the ground

©RoseGirl2019

What We Can’t See

If we can’t see the whole picture
As half is hidden and not shown to us
If there’s a curtain of fog,
an incomplete puzzle
And we hold single pieces
in our hand
We can only have faith and trust
There’s a divine plan behind everything
It’s all being sorted out from above

©RoseGirl2019

Imagine An Ocean

Think of an ocean
Think it as big as you can
And then imagine it even larger
Think of the depth of the water
How endless deep it goes
Its clear blue that reflects the light
Think of all the treasures
that the ocean holds underwater
The coral, all the diamonds
In the most beautiful colours
And then think of this ocean
as my love for you

Elements Of Longing

At times longing comes
in a wave that rises
Water that takes and pulls me
wildly to your shore

And sometimes it is a fire
within me
A burning desire
My body that wants to
feel and touch yours

Sometimes the longing
is solid like earth
Grounded in knowing
that you are mine

And at times longing
is subtle like air
it takes me high up
and let me dream
on my cloud

©RoseGirl2019

A Place To Be

My love, can you take me
into your poetry and your songs
Let me dance on your lines
And swing in your tunes
from note to note
And word to word
Close to you in your art
Where your heart is
Let me colour it from inside
I’ll make it joyful and exciting
I’ll play poetically
with rhyme and chords
Give me a place where I can be
all that I truly am
And just take me far away
from where I can’t

The Lioness That Walks Alone

And the lioness walks alone
on her path through the savannah
of life
As she doesn’t want to be held
hostage by other people’s belief systems
But she chooses freedom instead
and to honour and stand for the truth
within her
She knows that it means at times
you need to move away
and walk in solitude

But look, lioness, look around you
How the sun smiles, how the birds sing for you, how the trees bow
Your beloved walks with you in heart always
How the whole universe conspires
to support you
For the bravest of soul are those
who choose love over and over

©RoseGirl2019

Tu Me Manques

Instead of ‘I miss you’
They say ‘Tu me manques’ in French
which means:
‘You are missing from me’

You are missing from my arms, my love
You are missing from my eyes
You are missing from my skin
I’m incomplete without you
You make my eyes see
You make my arms filled
My skin sense
My soul whole

Tu me manques, mon chéri
For you are never missing from my heart

©RoseGirl2019

Sing, Sing, Sing!

Oh beautiful bird,
just sing, sing, sing!
If your heart feels caged
Your tunes of truth
will set you free

Take a deep breath
Inflate your chest,
round your belly
And sing!
Exhale your heart
With all your force
Bring it out loudly
Let it take you
high up and fly

Just sing!
Move the air
by your voice
Make waves of sounds
That will float you
to me
My heart will hear
As it is on
the same frequency

The Memory Of The Heart

Many memories just fade away
Or become vague figures
in the distance
Blurry images that can’t be grasped
no more
In time they slowly lose their trace

But the memories I have of you
all have their vivid imprint
in the now
How you looked at me
The words you said
How your arms felt around me

For it is the heart that knows
The heart that remembers
the true essence of love
and how you are stored in it

©RoseGirl2019

Watch Over My Heart

Watch over my heart
when others try to hurt
and invade it
when they don’t see its beauty
but say
there’s something wrong with it:
Too sensitive, too strange

Watch over my heart
when I run away from it
when I don’t see its beauty
and think the others are right

Please keep it safe and protect it,
caress it
Hold it in your loving arms
Until I return to it
and own it, make it again
my home of love and poetry

©RoseGirl2019

Let The Story Unfold Itself

You don’t need to hold your pen
so tightly,
to take control over the story,
to rationally construct the words,
overthink what will be next
and have a grip on every line

But just let your muse
naturally flow into it
Take a step back into faith
Give space to the divine
to do its work
And let the story unfold itself
right before your eyes

©RoseGirl2019

Clearing

When I get polluted
by what other people think of me
by their actions, energy and words
or by my own fear-based beliefs,
I take a shower with our love
and let its healing, clearing waters
run over me
until I am again nothing but
my pure naked truth

©RoseGirl2019

In Tune

Our thoughts follow each other
My heart dances with yours
A soul song sung in two voices
Dreams dreamed in unison

Our feet walk parallel paths
While our hands entwine in harmony
The steps we take are synchronized
Our heartstrings play the same key

As I am in tune with you
Wherever you are, wherever I am
We are like two tones that
together sound in consonance

©RoseGirl2019

All Of You Is Welcome

We look at the collage that is you
The moving images and
the ones that are still
In black and white and in colours
Pieces you wrote,
the ones you sang
Pieces of pain, fear, joy
anger, guilt or shame
Pieces you once removed
out of self-doubt and rejection
The pieces you hid
We take them all and put them
back together
Honour every part,
give them a place to exist
within you and in this world
For all of you is so welcome
to be seen and to be heard
by me

©RoseGirl2019

True Love Is Like Spring

True love is like Spring
No matter how cold and destroying
Winter has been
It has the power to melt away
the snow
and bring warmth
To let new planted seeds grow
To rise out of hibernation
and awake the colours,
To perfume the world with
the soft sweet smell of hope
To let desires blossom, hearts flower
To make birds sing and fly
And bring male and female
together

©RoseGirl2019

Let Me Sink In You

If all around me seems so stormy
Let me sink in you
So deeply
Root me in your heart
Be my shell, my packaging
And protect me from the world

Your endless love my bottom
Deeply nurturing my soul
Until I recover
And like a caterpillar
I feel strong enough again
to rise as the butterfly
and face the world

©RoseGirl2019

Misunderstood

If people don’t understand me
And it’s like I speak another language,
I’m from another planet,
They don’t see me, don’t hear me
And I feel lonely and misunderstood,
Can you please understand me,
Can you know every part of me,
See me into my depths
Even without having to use words

©RoseGirl2019

My Flower Heart

My heart is like a flower
that is wide open for you, my sun
And although sometimes,
if the wind of fear blows,
cloudy thoughts appear in the sky
or sorrow showers
that make its petals close a little
It always naturally opens itself
again to catch your light

©RoseGirl2019

Keep Your Fingers On The Strings

Let your fingers on the strings
guide you
Let your guitar be your ship
As it knows how to play
your soul song
It contains all your dreams
And will lead you safely
over stormy seas

I keep my pen in my hand
My poetry will guide me
As it knows how to sing
my soul song
My words are my wings
that fly me closer
to your sailing ship

As long as you keep
your fingers on the strings
And I hold my pen in my hand
we are on our way home

©RoseGirl2019

Let Me Come In

You’re alone in a room
in the half dark
Where everything is so familiar
And yet it all seems so strange
You feel you don’t belong

Open the blinds, open the window
Open the door you have closed
And let light and love in
Let it illuminate your world

Let me come in
Let my laughter dust off the old,
my kisses clear away stored sorrow
We’ll dance around together
like a whirlwind to clean every corner
and initiate it with our love

©RoseGirl2019

A Glass House

My poetry is a house of glass
Vulnerable and transparent
As it shows every part of my heart
Each word is honest
In every corner lies truth
People can come close
And look at it
But it is not to touch
For what is behind the glass
Is only meant for you

©RoseGirl2019

Only The Love Is Real

What can I trust
if I look around with confused eyes
And a pained heart

Are you real? I ask the shadows,
the movies, my thoughts, my fears,
the scenarios, I ask the stories

Are you real? I ask the clouds,
I ask the wind, the words
that have been said,
that have been written
and the unspoken

Are you real? I ask the images
and the facts, I ask the past
And I even ask my tears

But before they can respond
they disappear
Until I ask love
that is the only one
that answers:

Yes I am real

©RoseGirl2019

Lemniscate Of Love

We walk our lines
in our lemniscate of love
But even if we are both
at the farthest point,
the greatest distance
from each other,
the line turns around
and brings us back together
at the central point
It then turns out
what seemed like two loops
is in fact,
just one infinite line

©RoseGirl2019

The Rain And The Rose

It rains and it keeps raining
The petals of the rose hang down,
Hit by heavy waters
Soul pain goes as deep as the roots
And it breaks the heart
Soon the rose will be drowned

How can the rose be saved
Can we hold up umbrellas of hope
above her
My love, can you sing a bit louder
about the blue skies that are on their way
Let your sounds plant seeds in her heart
that will give her strength to carry on

©RoseGirl2019

See Your Light

See your own light
How it shines
so beautifully in your heart
See what I all see in you

And if you can’t see it
Please, look at my light
and see how yours is
reflected in me

For my light could only
shine that brightly
because it was ignited
by yours

©RoseGirl2019

To Another Universe

My head explodes with headaches
that blow up my mind
and suck me
into a black hole of nauseous pain

My love, with your arms around me
Let’s float away
to another universe
Where pain does not exist
And where together we count
the shooting stars
that fall as blessings upon us

And where what is One
will remain One always
