Barefoot

Barefoot

Barefoot standing in the spotlight
Crowds are watching me
Standing on flowers of nails
And needles like grass

I’m literally naked, they are gazing into my eyes
Do I have anything to say
I open up my mouth
Small human raise your voice

I hear, I, I hear, I
I hear sentences in the night
From a heart that’s
I hear, I, I hear, I
From my heart that is broken
From a heart that is mine

I refuse to let my age decide
Wether i am strong enough
I refuse to let their expectations kill my love for them
So here i stand, and i will stand like steel
But i bend my head every morning

Because this is not my own
This is not my own

I hear, I, I hear, I
I hear sentences in the night
From a heart that’s
I hear, I, I hear, I
From my heart that is broken
From a heart that is mine

I hear, I, I hear, I
I hear sentences in the night
From a heart that’s
I hear, I, I hear, I…

I can see them smiling
But they look around
And they will turn away
I wish that they would come

Lady Of My Life

You say lady of my life, lady of my life
Will you follow me
You say lady of my life, lady of my life
Take my hand

How I enjoy every minute
That I spend with you
How I enjoy every word
That you have written
I somehow seem to forget
Over and over
That you are there
But still

You say lady of my life
Will you follow me
You say lady of my life
Take my hand
You say lady of my life
You are everything
You say lady of my life
I love you

There have been days
There have been years
Someone says it always will
There have been moments
Even though that i’m still young
I’ve built walls with happiness
Built walls with pain
And with things beyond my understanding
But through all of this

You say…

Suspicion

I run along with my suspicion
We are hand in hand smiling
Kissing under trees and under stars
Never let anybody into our house

I married my suspicion last year
We have been very happy every since
If you want to talk to me
Talk to my suspicion first

I run along with my suspicion
I am sorry, i am not allowed to believe
I trust my suspicion no reason to go
Behind the mask

I married my suspicion last year
We have been very happy every since
If you want to talk to me
Talk to my suspicion first

I ran along with my suspicion
Lately things have started to change
My heart has become cold and quiet
No one is calling, no one comes in

I call to ask for separation
Maybe it is better that we live apart
For some time
It’s good to have some reservation
I think I may have crossed the
Line, though…

Blue Painting

Philharmonic sounds surrounding her head
Noise can’t be turned off
Nothing can come through to her
Fingers playing the cello, loud and strong

Shut her thoughts in caves of music
Shut her tears in caves of sound
Shut her fears in caves of illutions
They will come out

Smile to the doorway
Smile to the lamp
Smile to everyone except
The one who is smiling at you

Steel is soft compared to her stubbornness

At least the stubbornness of this kind
Her face shows no sign of lightness
Her face is cold and calm

Smile to the doorway
Smile to the lamp
Smile to everyone except
The one who is smiling at you

Smile to everyone except
The one you painted blue
The one who died for you

Hidden Poetry

She stole my sentence, stole my pen
I tried my best to get it back again
She hit me hard with a strong hand
I made a grin and left the land

I missed the train, i can’t get home
Got no more money on my phone
I sleep outside and here i’ll stay
‘Cause once i’m here, won’t go away

Poetry written so no one can hear
My nervous scream, my endless fear
My dream

All my words chosen carefully
Will not stand in the way, will not jump
In the sea
Where is the hope, where is the truth
My answers are drowned in the name of my youth
I press my nose against the floor
Won’t do it again, never done it before
My belly buttons starts to burn
My greatest concern is what I earn

Poetry written so no one can hear
My nervous scream, my endless fear
My dream

Shake her hand
And leave her
Take her tongue and say her words
Society can’t be explained
I’ll leave it to the birds

Poetry written so no one can hear
My nervous scream, my endless fear
My dream

Poison in my Wine

There is poison in my wine
There is cold snow in my shoes
The are footprints on my window frame
The dog is loose

I scream but i can’t hear a word
I cry my eyes are filled
My toes are fake
My legs are thin
I’ll never win

In vain i try to compose
The greatest symphony

The crowd who point their fingers
The crowd who I hear laugh
Are making my knees shiver
Are making my hands week
There is one little star on the sky
When i sleep i can hear somebody cry

Alone i can do nothing, alone I stand alone

The Last Waltz

I cry while I leave the house
Pictures are staring at me
And they call me a trader
I bend my head and I take my bags

My mother an father are sleeping
Next door, my sisters and brothers
Would laugh at me if I told them
The reason I have to escape like this

All that I leave behind
All the things I know I’ll miss

But this so very, so very important to me

But this so very, so very important to me

He has been waiting for me in the shadows
I can see his face is relieved when I come
He’d take my bags and he’d take my hand
I’d turn my head and I’d look behind
I know I will never go back

The Stones Will Cry

If i’m still the stones will cry
If i’m still the trees will clap their hands
If i’m still the mountains will roar

If i’m still the ocean will whisper
If i’m still the houses will cry out
Instead of me
Who can hide a secret reviled
Who can stop a running fire
Like a deer thirsting for water
I long for more of you

18 degrees

From side to side
Can’t get no sleep
The music just annoys
Sentences on repeat

Standing between the cold
And the warm
Opens and closes his eyes
Standing between the dark
And the light
Grey and 18 degrees

Wakes up but doesn’t know if
He slept
Opens his eyes but doesn’t know if
They were closed
Got a message on his answering machine
Nobody’s home
No his not home
