Satunnainen teksti

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

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

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

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

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

Freedom

Freedom arrives
into the clean sheets
with you
