To bits

she was sparkling ~prismatic like something from the stars sent down to please him unable to break free from her gravitational pull he crash-landed and loved her to bits ~quite instantly


she knows    the dreadful days        of dragging her feet forward                                           she grows                    ever more anxious           always chasing time                                            backward


across textured leaves little legs walk very fast ladybug travels


cracks in the ceiling become like a roadmap gazing upwards I travel following strange paths to stranger places


ethos pathos logos nachos damn - who needs Greek gimme Mexican!

The Grim Reaper

when he comes knocking there is no deal to be made you will leave with him

A heart

empty days followed by empty nights his chest achingly hollow lonely ~ he wandered the streets looking for a heart to beat    to bleed       to break


raking white pebbles fully focused - ticking sound causing spirals - zen

Trust fades away

words erased with words images distorted as light becomes as black as night and dark becomes as bright as day when trust fades away we are left with shards of memories fractured futures do not find me in the cracks of our foundation I never was - we



moonlight always fiery stars in the nightly hours we move with grace for this is our world but still it haunts me I shall never feel the sun on my face

Don't you dare

don't you dare die now I'm having a moment of peace sun bleaching my bones and a beer for some cheer


Dear Edgar Allan Poe I long for thy dark visions dull be the sane ones

Beady eyes

black bird perches on the rim of the roof its beady eyes piercing through my flesh into my soul


as I fear mornings I long for the nights to stay black satin covers


trying not to stir sunshine falls through the curtains gently she wakes me  

I am earth

you are elusive like blue sunny skies & storm clouds kiss me with your rays of light & touch me with your rain you can find me - always I am earth

Message in a bottle

remnants of the past bottle washed upon the shore the sea gives and takes


water runs wildly history made out of stone ivy covered bridge


three little ducklings are ushered by their mother into a brisk pace

A pattern

I trace            a pattern of your love left behind skin against skin and sin kissed by feverish sin it's your face I see ~ always I carry your scars beautifully

Guarded heart

she tried    not to protect                  but failed a guarded heart does not beat it scratches against the soul leaving vicious scars                  unseen they were lonely dreams             she only dared to dream


 a life's thread severed pardon me my heart breaking brothers be brothers


cherish her heart thorn & blood are simply the price to pay for deep rooted love

Your room

wearing off-white woolen socks & your sweater - too big but warm sitting here - happy on this old, tattered couch in your room it sure feels like home

Frozen flower

sweet summer's dream lies frozen in dying grass by autumn's touch stilled a single image instead of a stream

A beautiful soul

a beautiful soul unseen not shielded just unnoticed how can one not notice such sweetness such purity do we all have to be so loud so proud of who we are to shout it out like we are all that matters to be bold colored blindingly bright she shimmers a soft pastel perfection


pale blue dot dying how have we become so dense not to nurture earth

Red twigs

nature's finest paint red twigs like veins through blue skies brilliantly alive


magical folding the spirit of the far east paper crane flying


a heavenly sight snow kissed by wintry sunlight white panorama

Naam van jouw liefde

helder blauw als jouw ogen en koud als jouw hart de lucht is tekenend voor wie wij zijn geworden laten wij onze stramme ledematen uitstrekken verwrongen in een kromme lijn van het nog samenzijn maar ook niet vergeet de dagen dat wij gelukkig waren zij zijn gebroken en vergeeld als oude foto's uit een ver verleden neem je afscheid van me? of laat je me gaan als een zuchtje wind in een vluchtig en kort bestaan niet langer naam van jouw liefde

Lost souls

this forest cloaked in mist there are no footsteps here no pebbles no trails only lost souls among the trees


such evil creatures they suck the life out of you female mosquitoes


they stood on the hill ~ foes one tall and one small their eyes locked like nothing else existed both hesitant, should they run or kill curiously crossed fates for hearts can't lie they can beat, burn and break but never deny ~ yearning


Sunday morning bells ringing insistently I turn in my bed Church is for saints and sinners I've always been mere sand slipping through God's hand


what if you become my second sun will you shine ever true and cast sweet shadows on me will you hug me tenderly hold me in warmest arms or will sunburn be all I ever will find


dancing on moonbeams chasing stars across the sky ~ a little dreamer


where salt washes away tears and fears don't dare haunt me I seek refuge shells will shelter me and pearls 'll be my sisters know I'm not lost you can find me hidden within the darkest kind of blue


inhale ~ exhale never mind the clouds, the rain shrouds of gray, dark & dreary inhale ~ exhale never mind the people, the priest shrouds of gray, dark & dreary inhale ~ exhale never mind the guilt, the tears shrouds of gray, dark & dreary shed your fears finally be free

Lavender fields

a sweet scented dream touching, feeling ~ violet love lavender kisses

Rubik's cube

cube ~ six times nine squares too much possibilities I throw, run and hide

Big city

alone among the many I used to smile but after a while it faded I started to fade ~ life in a big city at morning we step out of our homes into our solitary confinement numb dulled and gray ~ life in a big city we're wasting away


behind the artist words battling for prominence unwritten verses

Born in blood

all are born in blood naked a little blue first breath with rattling lungs all are fragile like flowers

My heroes

to you ~ my heroes I bow with empty hands and a heavy heart I lay down my life at your feet and whether you slay me or kiss my brow I know I have honored you nothing more can be said there's nothing more I could do

Breath of fire

hard to see demons while chasing the dark ~ stumbling breath of fire burning truth I am in-between death & dream turning to scream but can only manage mumbling

Wrapped only in love

vulnerable ~ naked in its light and now the moon knows I keep no secrets between the sheets this night wrapped only in love ~ I'll sleep deeply and daringly

A poem

come lay down ink on paper beloved words touching kindred souls a written breath of life ~ a poem


she does not belong here like the empty shells on the shore hold her closely and you'll hear the sea calling her back


smoke rings show slow death uncurling a sickly goodbye with every breath taken just one more burning my core

Watch the world

the young one and the old with sad eyes and a pale face watch the world in dark colors knowing or so they think never will they be light or beautiful do they not realise they are unique and gorgeous in their own right we need not perfection we need loving grace

Red apples

tantalising trees' high branched bear the sweetest fruit flaming red passion portrayed forbidden apples kissed only by the sun

Sleeping deeply

a graceful depart the contours of her mind fading with open eyes she slips away sleeping deeply where no dark dreams shall enter

Ghostly fingers

at night I slumber ~ sad, alone with my sin my heart once scarred, now stitched still beats I breathe, I seem to breathe, but only before dawn taunting me, haunting me ghostly fingers trail my skin for you are here while you are gone

Drift away

I take in the wind let my soul drift far away you can't confine me


oh how sweet they look these tiny blue-eyed kittens predators they are


salt & sea became a veil of tranquility tender be the waves

The same

when all is lost between the lines & seemingly no words remain remember us my love ~for we are still the same when your days are dark & your nights are cruel & it seems to you the world has gone insane remember us my love ~we are still the same ~we'll remain the same

A sad song: Streets of Philadelphia

Streets of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen 🎢 This is a song that for me is not only linked with the movie Philadelphia. It is also linked with the feeling of being lost, feeling like you are almost invisible, like you do not matter at all to anyone, especially to you yourself. That's why for me this song is so very sad, but strangely enough it also gives me strength, even hope. At the times when I feel lost and very negative about myself, it makes reflect on what I do have, a home, loved ones, security, a future. And even if I can't touch any positive feelings at that moment, I can keep holding on to the knowledge that I do have those things, I just need to find my way back out of the black cloud that surrounds me. This song makes me cry, but that's okay. Those are tears I need to shed anyway to resurface again.  Lyrics: I was bruised and battered, I couldn't tell what I felt. I was unrecognizable to myself. Saw my reflection in a window and didn't know

I see you

seconds stretch meeting time I breathe a dream transformed I see you gazing
