Days like this

Days like this Leave me blinded I never know what to expect One minute the sun is shining bright The next, clouds obscure it And the street swallows its own darkness, Spitting back out coldness and void 27/05/2015 Advertisements

Je m’effrite (english version: I’m withering away)

I don’t feel part of this world anymore Everything has been erased My past Is withering away With the time that falls In the hourglass * I can’t find  the hope anymore That was hidden Under my pillow In the evening Everything seems to wither away * Everything slips away beneath my feet The quicksand…

Sinking & Screaming

Some days, I just want to leave my life, Pick up And go with all left behind. It’s like Shedding skin, this life we live. I can’t Think with screaming in my head. Where now Are we expected to go? I’m lost In a sea I can’t travel. Tell me, Please…

Je m’effrite

Je ne me sens plus de ce monde Tout s’est effacé Mon passé S’effrite Avec le temps qui tombe Dans le sablier * Je ne retrouve plus l’espoir Qui était caché Sous mon oreiller Le soir Tout semble s’effriter * Tout se dérobe sous mes pas Le sable mouvant s’agrippe A mes fines jambes tremblotantes…

Lost in the folds of your arms

Lost in the folds of your arms I dive deeper into your mind Swimming through convictions and beliefs It’s a relief To lose myself in you * You make this all worth it Warming my iron heart Into thinking everything’s ok * Your innocence and youth Make me doubt When I’m submerged in humanity’s downfall…

Childhood

Take me back to summer dresses And dancing in dewdrop-drenched grass Wielding dandelions As swords against the hiccups and heartbreaks of life * Clad me in soft PJs once more And tuck me in bed Siphon the nightmare away As you kiss the top of my head * Soothe me with bedtime stories Transport me…

If grief weren’t a sin

If grief weren’t a sin Reserved for the old A tale would be told One I hold deep within * I grief weren’t a sin When felt by the young I could tell you the story Of those whom I loved * If grief weren’t a sin I would cry over mountains Over clouds and…

Sunrise

I wish I could hold you here beside me Not only in spirit, but also in flesh Watching the birds soar from this imaginary bench And the sun glide like a bee To further lands * I’d like to hold your hand, now withered with time Mine just as small with regained innocence These days,…

Where I feel safe

Places where I feel safe: The lining of books The shimmering water Gilded butterflies Sunshine * Hiding under warm covers Tea held eagerly in my glacial hands Under my veil of long dark hair Beside my friends in the sea * Hugging my stuffed-animal-strawberry Lost amongst the pages of books Head resting against one of…

Lost

The floodgate opens. I don’t know where I am, Or whose body I’m in. Peering in the mirror, A fractured face of lies Stares back at me.? I can’t think. I can’t breathe, The air rushing right out of me.? How do you go on Without air? Without life? The walls…
