Voyager

It's like there's sand in the water
        dust in the air
I can feel the bear's trap on my feet
the horizon isn't visible

My environment is getting bigger
        I'm crubling
I'm dividing to be a part of the world
along with my travels

honey (ii)

turn me to the southeast
just turn harder
        honey

tear my every cell
every single one of them
        honey

don't care about me
don't care at all
        honey

        nothing is
        we aren't
                honey

Under the surface

I wear a mask
        often
(Because) I can not be
        still
                in my own body

I could throw goodbyes
like I'm skipping stones
         (because) karma has been throwing me

Too little - too much
I look at the circling world
I drown
in myself
        and the lack of it

Internal visionary
eating away the back of the skull
        in silence
you may hear it all
                in the silence of everything


1/12/2017

Twofold

I remember the mornings when my feet didn’t carry me
sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy
in a black and white world

I run to catch my thoughts
I sink and fly in the middle of the stings
numbness is real
at least in this reality


26/11/2017

Storm

You come apart in my hands
like coal after frost
You tear me to pieces
like first love
You're undressing me
with love

You make me speechless
like a dream (after realization)


9/11/2017

Open your eyes

Laundry cycle
speaks of gratitude
in the streams of the modern world
the network is larger

Spark and the birth of a path
at the atomic level of the Big Bang
cleanliness inside and out
glass walls brake while cleaning


28/10/2017

Toothed

Internal crisis
        internalized silence
keep
        should
                 be

What are you?

        Which makes me
        happy,
        billions of people don't accept
        the same key


23/10/2017

Knowledge

There's information
to know when to turn
a page instead of a chapter
        a book
                a story

When to chirp past
when to slap the truth
in a fragile hierarchy


2/10/2017

Loneliness

Chews
       scrunches
                swallows

Stirs thoughts
from the atoms of the universe
- about how we work

        silly


5/10/2017

Sunrise

An intriguing feeling of loneliness
feels like follows me almost everywhere
I've heard true stories of different mechanisms to live
all of them together cause a drowning vortex inside me

      I lay naked in the middle of my thoughts
      inside my stomach is an encraving fear
      about the next life

I could count the alphabet backwards in my head
to feel myself one degree more zany
Instead I'm silent as settled wind
hoping that on the morning I'm swept
like yesterday evening's bread crumbs from the porch's doorstep


31/12/2016

Daydreamer

When the clouds turn into snow
your lips feel on my lips
"I love you"
locks inside me above the blue pool

When two lives merge
awakes an itch
        to jump
The world's embrace is open


18/10/2017

Without rebellion

The details matter
in the static sea
the swimming fishes mutate
randomly
        into extraordinary
individuals move forward
optimized


23/9/2017

Paradox

The connection is loading
accumulates toward the heights
released when met
re-al life greets
corners of the mouths drop onto the floor

     I'm free


19/9/2017

Clock face

My cells divide
at a different pace with my mind
in half
I'm ready each day
to assess the ticking loss
achievements, the future
new beginnings and roots
where I could plant
my time


18/9/2017

Faded

rapids don't run empty
butterflies continue their flight
the world doesn't stop with you
our time is limited
I wanted to make it beautiful
with you, dear


1/9/2017

i

it took you time to understand
to let go

i pity
     you
           us

blind spots
that i wanted to forget


at this moment
      after a year
the only thing i want to thank you

is
that you gave me a reason
that could not be silenced

a reason
     to let go
           to open eyes

to breathe


16/8/2017

Spark

Within two weeks we accelerated our affection
found each other under the same blanket
dreaming about the same moment
feel
which grew bigger
surprising us both
momentarily also increasing fear

The outlines of the touch got color
silly ideas are becoming true
soon we'll be present
here
my face shines from a smile
I bury myself into your scent with open arms
and I never want to go back to the surface


7/8/2017

Cycle

What if we are an illusion
in the best simulation in the world
making naive choices
to our empty stomachs

Do you know in which direction we are rotating
whether the soul comes off the body when we die
how we all end end up alone
back at the starting point


5/8/2017

Glazed

It feels like sometimes I'm breathing borrowed time
the absolute value jumps on both sides of the scale
I lower my velvety hands through the curtain of sleep
seeking the possibly numbed bottom of my selfhood

In my eyes the outlines of love are taking shape
my skin tingles and it downright demands you
While rinsing I drown myself to the cloudy everyday
listening to the waves with the time being the sand bottom


5/8/2017

Swamp run

What if we'd whisper:
Life is sand in an hourglass
which, in order to survive, must be hardened
that you don't just
end
too early


3/8/2017

Freedom

Freedom arrives
into the clean sheets
with you


1/8/2017

In minds

I find myself in the mirror
breathing tones
of the life that I dreamed of

I think of the gray sighs
the coat that they colored
crystal mesh breathes ripply on my surface

I wonder how to break a wheel
into an angular
meaning lives in the corners


21/7/2017

Existing

From the nebula
you land without a shadow,
glide by the power of the soul
forgetting
that we ever were.


19/7/2017

Prone

Heart in your sleeve
you're not the first,
maybe the last?


17/7/2017

Dissolving

In our kisses
dreams weave
tight, honey


4/7/2017

Me and the world

How much does your scale fall down
from my words, in a world
where the letters teem
it's been rumored, that they're not important

How do you feel
when love is spoken as a mode
so unique, the diversity
the truth about it being a verb is forgotten

Skills are prioritized
things are raised on a podium
trampled, and not taught to listen
- however, there's billions of us


25/6/2017

Braided syllables

I stay up with you to the sunset
and beyond
unawares, you hug me
with you the crumbs of a cookie seem big
hail only tickels the smiling senses

Nicknames spills the heart
I feel like I could fly overboard
only enjoying the fall
'cause I know
you'd be there to catch me

Is this what happiness feels like
to everyday find a reason to smile
to laughter
that wraps us together
into co-op bubble, to freedom


15/6/2017

Mist

On the best days
love drowns
each one of us


10/6/2017

Fixing an error

Thanks for sharing the rafting with me
our flow's vortexes accelerated to furious
and that’s why I like you

Rocks and burden
shape each other
creating only a more powerful flow

    Thank you for pointing my error


12/5/2017

Life

They swim in the seas
in the world as well as also
in you and me


30/5/2017

Sinisyys

The flow of blue emotions
is effervescing inside of me
like a storming ocean
in a serene world

        It's like I had discovered
        a new world
        when I took the first step into your heart
        - without even noticing


23/5/2017

Gift in Return

No one told
how long
how many
beats you must take
to smooth yourself into a diamond


11/5/2017

Could we

Could I sink into you
like the fish sinks into the ocean
or words into the book
Could I be to you
a cozy spot of light
in the gray mass


9/5/2017

Unstable

I feel like;
freedom lies in scissors
better than in me

The glass spills, ripples and vibrates
quiet moments are rare
on the toe that has been rubbed
open, in the middle of all the salt
which exudes from me


7/5/2017

Blue (gift) package

Sometimes I don't want to think
how your eyes shine
while you're watching the same moon
when in reality I'd want something else
- something teeny tiny else -
kiss the same mouth
which every day prints
your inner being with sounds, breaths and sighs
that carries the ingredients of life
and makes me smile like a rose bouquet
which was brought home on the first day


1/5/2017

Reflex

Verbiage in the southeast or without
I turn my mind from knobs
to so smooth
that I don't feel anything anymore


11/4/2017

Emptiness

It's like I've
taken the letters from the world
gone to bathe
and when emptying the tub
my life has disappeared


10/4/2017

Scream

The air around me ceases
I find myself a prisoner in a frame
from the board
which is not mine


4/4/2017

Strenght

Others bring more water
others join in
to the pool of solitude

When will the mirror rise to the front
when do you really sense
the real energy


30/3/2017

Longing

The night is blue
the sky is fogging with me
just like you


25/3/2017

Surprise

The mind rests
on the crest of a wave today

        Toes are laughing


23/3/2017

Dream

In the middle of candy flosses
tired of pipe dreams
- roses have thorns too


23/3/2017

Air

I look at my flank, I slide my finger
I can press to count
the shell of my lungs, maybe
the world I crave
fits inside me
when I breathe


22/3/2017

Breath

Palm full of poems
    one
    stormy nights
    the sky cried with me racing - quietly
    two
    a tragicomic circus tragedy
    syllable by syllable escaping the coils of a casette
    three
    shadow boxing the pain threshold
    the explosive enlightenment of emotions
    four
    love
    the march of weaving letters
    five
    tectonic plate under my feet
    vortexes in the waves of the heart

The following years are yet needing another


20/3/2017

Hook of happiness

Weekends are like a drug
after workdays have been distilled out
Monday is like a curse word
on the evening the darkness reveals a lonely silhouette

        The air that circulates around
        feels as heavy as quilt
        beneath which I'm alone

A flash of happiness returns
with you


28/2/2017

Weave

With you the world takes shape
to just the right size
for us two
to conquer

The walls that scream emptiness disappear
reality is tangible again
the threads intertwine
in golden back pockets


26/2/2017

Tremoring

Do you feel the steps of my pulse
how it races to touch yours
with red pulses
I slowly flow into exstasy


14/2/2017

Bottomless

You spin in my mind like a leaf-storm
when a new shade reveals itself I fall
again and again



13/2/2017

Seesaw

Whether I wake up to sleep or to reality
I breathe stagnant air
through you I feel the movement
on the skin
tingling under the skin
as if the blood flow stopped
in the next second I fall into your embrace


7/2/2017

Riddle

You tickle, excite my mind
you scud my thoughts like a leopard
We slightly opened the books of our minds
unexpectedly

Dream couldn't feed us
as well as we fed each other
My wave sways in your direction
with every ripple


6/2/2017

Straight

Is it better that one can't remember or forget
paths move, evaporate and appear
the keys change in chinks

People around are looking for a foothold
some run away, others destroy
selfhood is tired of swaying in the wind


30/1/2017

Adulthood

Before the image of dusty people
nowadays much wider range of colours,
like a pool called childhood
- adolescent like fumbling on dry land


4/1/2017

Puppet master

I play with fear, with a smile
with myself
with madness
I wonder how I can see myself
while a ball of yarn rolls
back


22/1/2017

From an imaginary rag to a sheet

You lit me like a fuse
you inputted your best like a lazy performer
Your relationship was like a doomed trial for you
Our relationship was not real
for the both of us on the same frequency


14/1/2017

Magic trick

Does the love die
doesn't it always stay?
Maybe in the fairy tales.


15/1/2017

Dreamer

I see dreams of people
I have dreams about leaving
I dream of a trip
common moments
shared feelings

I see how the flowers start to bloom
on spring ice
how the frost wins
the dark


14/1/2017

Jingle

I walk, I lose
with the eyes of my soul I squint
I close the wily
grief opening of my mind's distress

Today, tomorrow
I notice an orgulous dilemma
As a job I lose
my thoughts into a new faith


8/1/2017
