Dream

And if the ocean between us
seems yet too big to cross
then embrace me, kiss me, hold me
dance with me in your dreams

And dream as much as you can
day and night, dream far,
dream big, dream deep

Until the dreams become real
and the ocean a surreal dream

The Image

Her family had made a picture of her
They had depicted her in such ugly words
It broke her heart
And she stood next to the picture
and wanted to tell them
that the one in the image wasn’t her
that she has a good heart
that she has beauty inside
but they only fixated on the picture
and didn’t even notice her
So then she decided to distance
herself from the image
and to walk away from
the ones who took the shot

Instead she looked at the image
that her beloved has of her
in his heart

The Undying Light

Have you ever wondered,
these deep emotions
the depth we have for each other
in our hearts
how everything around us changes
and even we are not
who we once were
that time goes by
a lot has happened
and our eyes have not touched
for a while

But still, the love is there
deeply rooted in us
that in fact,
the more we shed our egos
the stronger and deeper
the love grows

Have you ever wondered
about the wonder
how special, how extraordinary
yet so normal and natural to us

Our love that is a love of the soul
it is the undying, eternal light
within us both

Danced Dedication

And somewhere in the ether
beyond the limits of words,
of body, of space
we find each other
I hold you,
you hold me
and we dance together
as we always dance
Each movement is a
dedicated prayer
With every step, every breath
every heartbeat
we honour love,
we honour us

From My Heart To Yours

I dipped my pen
in the golden ink
of my heart and wrote
a Valentine’s letter
I perfumed it with
the sweet scent of love
Adorned it with rose petals
and pressed with lipstick
kisses on it
Then I delivered it
to your heart

So close your eyes
to find it within
Unfold it, smell it and feel it
and read, my love,
read and soak it in

Private

There are things that I don’t speak out loud
Things that don’t see the light of day
and are kept away from words

Things that have their own life,
their own world, their own way
Hidden for the eye, the mouth
and pen

Instead they are exchanged in feelings,
as they flow secretly between our hearts

Space

Does she have any space
in the world,
in the life of others
Does the poetess
have space in the poems
Does she have
space in the songs

Or IS she the space
in which poems
and songs are written
as she has space
in his heart

Can A Word Ever Say

Can a metaphor ever depict
Can a word ever say
Can my eyes ever reflect
Can my body ever dance to you
how much you mean to me

Maybe,
they all fail separately
but it’s the sum total
It’s a world of metaphors
It’s a symphony of poetry
my eyes always looking at you
my body sacredly devoted
to yours
in an endless dance

Maybe,
it is through these many ways
in which my heart speaks
as it even speaks its love for you
through silence,

that you will know

Tangible

Soft, poetic words
rain like ten fingers on you
cherish and stroke you
from top to toe
Words like two warm arms
that lovingly hold you
and embrace all
that is and all
that you are
Words like two hands
that blindly find
the poetry on you
carefully reading
and soaking in
each word
with their palms
Words like two ears
that hear your dreams
and deepest
heart’s desires
translating them
into kisses
and shooting stars
that make wishes
come true
Words like two eyes
that deeply gaze
into yours
telling you stories,
fairy tales from the heart
all you need to know
and even more
A poem like one body
wrapped around you
gentle naked truth
that is touchable
A poem like one heart
fused together
with yours

How Trees Grow Strong

Trees don’t grow strong
from only sunshine
But they grow strong
from fierce winds
and heavy rainfall
when they’re being shaken
to the core
and need to let go
of branches and leaves
When there are obstacles
underground
that force their roots
to discover new ways
And they may still carry
the scars
from the storms they endured,
testimonials of strength
As they only grew strong
because of the challenges
they faced

A Fiery Storm

And outside I let the storm
blow through me
Wind that feels like fire
when I think of you
and I dance with it, I whirl,
I float and I fly
until I become the storm
that makes the land
and the water move
that makes the flames
rise high
by the power of love

A Wild Dance

Clouds float wildly through
the sky this morning
Accompanied by the noise
of un upcoming storm
Trees move their branches
wildly back and forth
And the river throws its water wildly
over the banks and the quay

Such wild thoughts
wild dreams
a wild heart and wild love
Such a wild dance to
dance with you today

Encrypted

The moon shines brightly on me
through the bedroom window
and before I go to sleep
and close the curtains
I write you one more poem
not meant for the public eye
but for your eyes, for your heart only
Therefore, I’ve encrypted it
with moonlight

The Art To Become Invisible

My fairy man, we both know
the art to become invisible
For we’ve learned it long time ago
when we were out in the dark woods
and other creatures attacked us

And sometimes, we still use it
to protect ourselves
We sprinkle our magic powder
and within an eye blink
we disappear into our fairy tales
drift away into our dreams

We keep silent
Invisible and transparent
like ghosts
The page stays blank
and can’t catch our words

But even though, no one
in the woods can see us
You always see me
I always see you
We’re never invisible to each other
as we see through the love
in our hearts

It’s Lonely Behind Glass

And sometimes it feels like
I am behind mirroring glass
I listen, I see, I hear
People project on me
see their own stories
on my surface
talk with themselves
but do they see me

My love, can you see me
can you see through the glass
and dissolve the loneliness
with the deep reach of your eyes
and the ears of your loving heart

The Bird Has Left His Cage

The bird has left his cage
of the past,
as he broke free from the bars
of darkness and sadness
and now he sits on a branch
to sing for the world
his true heart song
of love, hope and joy

And sometimes,
his own bright light
still feels a bit uncomfortable
the blue sky is so open,
intense and so free
and he wants to fly back
to his cage
to his comfort zone
but then love, his own heart
reminds him that
things have changed
and it’s not where
he’s meant to be

Choosing Joy Over Fear

When in life there have been
so many experiences of hurt
it is not always easy to walk
with open heart and in faith

But whenever I get triggered
and fears and
hopeless thoughts arise
I take a deep breath
and I choose
love, trust and joy over fear
As I see us walking
this journey together
I choose to be happy
not just for you or for me
but for us both

Robin

I come to you
in the shape of a robin
right by your side
Whatever happens
I continue to sing you
my heart songs
I sing you straight through
the winter cold
and warm you with passion
I bring a promise of hope
And when you feel dead inside
I sing you alive
and remind you of Spring

Do you come to me
in the shape of a robin
do you continue to sing
even when it is Winter
do you bring me the promise
of Spring
