I find him In the most interesting places, now My head replaying memories A bit like scenes from a movie I close my eyes And the projector winds The reel clicks and ticks And the memory plays Silent, My eyelids … Continue reading
And, in the end, we lie awake
And we dream of making our escape.
Death and All of His Friends, Coldplay
I lay down at night And I don’t sleep. I only dream I could dream Of our counting sheep.

Through my fingers
I’ve held so close
Almost to my lips
Still, it never fails
The moments escape through my hands
Like trying to scoop water from a river
And drink, before it drains back into the rush
I guess I am not so good at that
I too, am torn
Unknowing if you feel the air
Draw you into me
When we sit together
As I do with you
Unknowing if I should turn back now

I do not own many books
But a persons eyes
I find quite simple
Unable to hide its secrets
Exposing everything at once
Are a bit more complex
I think we complicate things
I come closer
I stay up, involuntary
I still can’t forget how you looked at me.

Something in music There is something in music That multiplies It creates relevance Between two people In a room It draws curiosity It reminds the soul Of all things felt Which were most important While they both sing Tattered lyrics … Continue reading
I no longer must cling to the earth I simply jump into this private ocean Unknown to the whole world It’s tide, gentle and honest Returns me to the shore My eyes like small projectors Had once proclaimed troubles But … Continue reading
It’s different this time, the silence.
It is not empty, but rather overflowing with things that I cannot explain in words.
I may start to lose consciousness.
As I close my eyes.
