Me 3d
We did not stick
Together
Only to cover
Each others'
Injuries
But have set out
To let them heal
Instead
💚
Now I can say it like this.

My whole system refuses

refuses

am I even
a girl or not

your whole system
embraces
all possible choices

The slightest

your palm seeking
my chest

still working on

the filters that have your hand stop

Stripped
Me Sep 10
Did you ever
experience yourself
truly
without any
put-on
identity

without a job to
carve your
success into
a visible statue without
a family showing
to the world
how good a father mother sister brother child
you are
without a bank account
without
a weekly hobby
to bet on
your friendly
social side
without
a house
of bricks and decor

without a story
for small talk
without that which saves you
from all awkward moments
where the conversation
oddly
knocks an obstacle

Have I ever told you
I am
that obstacle
telling you
very good
very
very well done
indeed


from here you start
what you like

from here you see
when you look at yourself
yourself only
I don't mean to say jobs and friends and family and hobbies are stupid. You'll get it, I'm sure :)

A Beat Away
Me Sep 9
You cast your eyes down and I see your eyelashes, black and white, alternately gracing the see-through skin. You are in a state of such vulnerability that I do not even want to tell you, dare to tell you,
how beautiful you look from here, how your -
How you amaze me just by sitting like this,
so obviously ashamed of the closeness and with what is materialising
in the air, so thick we could slice it, and probably do so -
I think too much, still.
And you probably hear me thinking, not the thoughts though.
But I let a bit of the time pass, just like this, looking at you
because I cannot not be looking;
you averting your gaze, exuding what I feel to be just one
little
beat away from connecting.
I will wait a bit more, but I will not walk further away from here.
For I already see your left hand twitching a little, relaxing
just a tiny bit, getting ready to actually stretch out - and it makes
my stomach and throat and chest tighten in a rebellious sort of maybe-it’ll-be-too-much - so yes, it is me, too. It is me who is making the air thick, and my breathing heavy.
A sense of foreboding so palpable.
So I’ll wait.

Charged Words
Me Sep 8
Sending a chain of
charged words
to get you out of your stupor
they aim
directly
at spots underneath your skin
vibrating all out
and up
that stuck to you
and made you slow in pace
and stagnant -

A shot of that
which makes
the water float

The Inner Translator
Me Sep 8
You hand me
words that I translate
into colour for you so that you
can understand
I loosen them up
break, gently, their hard lines and shapes
so that their energy becomes one
you can handle
so that this world becomes
one you can handle,
dear

The Rational Mind
Me Sep 6
The Rational Mind knows
There is no such thing
As the absence
Of feeling
A mind that truly serves you never denies emotion.
Me Sep 5
Look,
that
lies beyond shame;
being enveloped
in the certainty:

you are
perfect
Crack the smile for me

In the Open
Me Sep 5
Pinned
to the wall naked
you can see
every inch of my body
every
scratch
scar
mark
and I feel
so
utterly
vulnerable and open
and you
tirelessly
asure me
it
is
fine

Gentle
Me Sep 5
A day where you just
Gaze up
At the sky and clouds
No need at all to think
"Should I"
A day to let all the things
Deliberately
Integrate
Some things take time.

The Proud Animal
Me Sep 5
Stubborn
To cover your shyness
You stick
Your neck out of the waves
Spreading
After a courageous inhale
Your sticky wings
And push yourself
Off the ground
Soaring
Lips parting
When finally
You allow yourself the smile
That was building up
All this time:
You know how to fly now

Untouchable
Me Sep 4
Do not apologise
for how you feel,
dear
for your feeling
is always
authentic
I just realise that I justify or want to change my feelings towards certain people a lot, in my head, and  just now I realised  I don' t need to. They don't need to change, but neither do I.

Encouraging the Fire
Me Sep 2
~
But what if I burn too much
says the fire
In that case I will
just put you out a bit

murmurs the water
and wraps itself
around the flames
just enough
to calm the fire down a bit
~
Me Sep 2
Even if you have your focus out
directed
to outside
to attack, to jump, move, go forth-
You are
in truth
never going away from me
because, Love
I am not
outside of you
You are taking me with you
at every
single
step
focused or not
so no need to check
every time
anxious
that I might be gone
I am never gone
I am always there
So move, dear
conquer, explore, connect
and share with me
everything
Move,
cause you're the one who moves us

Thunder
Me Sep 1
I am the home
And the traveller
I am the roaring waters
And calamity
I am the flame that strikes
And the soothing wind
The deep forest
And the open prairie
I am the fist in your stomach
And that which opens
I am your widening heart
And that means everything

Best-Case Scenario

your best-case scenario

Have fun :)

Emerging
Me Aug 31
The impact of your golden boots on the cobble stone is heavy,
getting more decisive with every step of the path, forward.
Your deep-red silk cloak sways in the wind
and covers your shoulders and back;
you are on the way, and it is good.

Imagine a king who sets one foot in front of the other, not yet
a hundred percent convinced
that he is going to like his job, this work.
A king who, nevertheless, takes it, because it is his place
and because it is time.
Imagine a king walking with heavy step so as to be heard;
a king whose first command is one pronounced with utter clarity - because it is necessary.
Imagine a king emerging,
leaving all insecurities behind - because it is time.

Imagine this king, secretly pressing - under his red cloak -
his right hand on a spot a bit above his pounding heart,
bracing himself.
For all this is new.

Imagine a king who is human, and knows it.

The Home Within

What a good feeling
of true safety
I wish this to all of you.

We Deserve It
Me Aug 30
Like the fish deserves to swim
freely in the open water
so do we
deserve a safe space
that no one can call into question
I just had a breakthrough realisation (that also hurt a bit): Until now I never allowed myself the comfort of a safe home without drama - because I had learnt that material goods that bring safety (a place to live) always come with big drama and unsolvable conflict. Today, I realised, this is not true. The drama always came from something else. So I let that "something else" go now - seeing that it had its place to be there and roam, but now it need to dissolve. I would like to hear your thoughts on that topic, because right now I cannot estimate how much of a global or general issue it is... Thank you :)
Me Aug 29
I saw you and you knew that I saw you
Coming out
Carefully
Into the sunlight
Your words directed
Directly
At me explaining why
You cannot [maybe] stay very long
So I
Probably decided
When you’d retreated back
Into the shade
I’d follow
With my guitar playing it
For you
And just for you and I would ask no one for permission
Because it was for you

Since then
We play together jumping
From sun spots into shady spaces
Back and forth
Both feet
On both sides
And this is
So much
How it’s
Supposed to be

a musical band

two kids

the strings of their guitar

The Red King
Me Aug 28
The crown on his head slightly
crooked
for not being
so used to it
yet
his steps
steady but still
a bit shaky
the weight new to his body

and everything still
waiting for his
tender command
~
Me Aug 28
Carved into land into soil there run
Veins of steamy wagons
Noisy vehicles
And trains
Along the arteries
Flowers grow
Courageously
inbetween it all
And You-

Through all the noise I hear
The beat
Of the heart
Of the Earth saying
Look
Saying
I want
To feel
The naked soles
Of your feet walking
My skin again

You explain look-
Time changes...
Of course you
Both smile knowing
haha, does it
Fit your hand into hers
into his
Shake it off
Loose your thick cough and free
Your lungs from steam and dust
You did it
Many times before and will
This time
All the more free yourself and others:
A brother is who sees what is at stake
When needed
Greetings

Evolutionary Dance
Me Aug 13
Two flowers
one fuelled by
pain the other
by love
grow side by side
one day
a painful moan escapes
the crying blossom
and the other
reaches over
to spend comfort
propelling them
both
a great deal
upward
united
for a bit
of this path
before they part again
beginning
to sense
their roots being
intertwined
deep deep down
in the soil
sending little signals
tears on the petals
a code to remembering

Bonobo
Me Aug 13
Eyes filled with
such obvious
expression
you do not have
to ask
for any
single
detail
to be clarified
no official language
makes
a conversation like this
No need really to teach any animal an invented sign language, I feel. There's communication going on always all the time, just you may or may not choose to realise :)

The Tale
Me Aug 13
I set out to built
a street
a shed
a house
then wanted
a palace
an island
a country
a landscape
a universe

You begin to be
become
a universe
with stars
with earth
with hearts beginning
to beat
to know you

But it taps you
Right on the shoulder
Belying

On the Back of my Neck
Me Aug 11
Tattooed onto
the back of my neck
A sign that I don’t
need to see
Just need it
to be there and seen
A sign
A signal
saying
I’ll make music
Till they hear it

The Body of Water
Me Aug 11
You let yourself be touched in the gentlest of ways,
a feather caressing your skin from your fingertips up to your shoulder and on til your cheek, letting loose a sensation that reverberates
out from the center of your chest into your whole body
and out from it.
It makes you a lighthouse, an involuntary beam of unrepressed, most intimate joy.
A most honest feeling.
The water beneath your feet is crystal clear now,
truly reflecting icy blue and silver, not cold.
It brings almost as much joy to you as this caressing touch.
And you want to show it, point it out, share the knowledge of it, that is. You are eager.
And you don’t have to worry that you might not find your way  back.
And you already know why. You have mastered the water,
as it taught you how to, tirelessly and in so many ways.

Rose Line
Me Aug 9
It could be like this,
she says, disguising her pride by
raising one thin eyebrow
in what she hopes
is an eloquent manner
giving him the pains of
hiding
best as he can
the loving smile that wanted to pop onto his face
and beam, fully, at her;
It could be
just like this:
and he reads it

Already somewhere
in yet darker corners and still
slightly hidden
sights
some are mumbling
about love returning
about something
utterly
rejuvenating yet
slightly painful
returning
into
a stream of life blood
a stream
making it
for the first time
as it should be


A thunder growling in the distance
but it is not threatening

A beaming smile
now coming through
against all odds
inevitably

A dashed blasted, beaming
most beautiful
smile

The Thing
Me Jul 19
...
Write it yourself, I say. Write it yourself like you write it into being with every single facet and fibre of it.
Write it like you know you are writing it.
A shape, form, emerges in front of your eyes,
your fingers are not still now, cannot be still
for they are at the same time describing and creating what you see with your own eyes.
They move, in constant motion because you are in constant motion, and you want it to be clear.
You are not running from it, but it is not easy.
It feels - it pulls at you rather strongly rather like this is the thing that is not very patient anymore not feeling like it makes sense to wait everything out - the thing that sent flashes of bliss into your fingers
in the first place, the thing that makes your very own chest sting and pound hard in turns, like a ship in the most childish of storms.
You do not dare to breath out fully, and when you do it sinks down right into your stomach and there feels
so much more profound and physical.
It stretches out into your hands and feet, your fingertips.
You do not look at your words because you are the one who’s already seen them before they came into being. You are not quite
daring to free the full power, the
full
spell of the word that lay under this thick layer, but you feel it fully, feel that already the word is out, uncovered, hovering - getting to know you better, getting to know your condition,
the multiple points of connection already apt and willing,
and the ones that still push - push away.
There is time.
There is time for sure. But the thing is as sentient as you are.

Force and matter holding

Me Jul 13
In this bright yellow house
Cooking always is possible
Always takes place in a very relaxed and playful way
In this house
Nothing comes in which
Disturbs
The calm love on purpose
Only occasionally a fiery
Argument stirs
Inside it
In the yellow house
You are always
Always respected for who and what you are
In the yellow house your loved one
Is with you even if he goes to travel
For a bit
Even if she goes
To travel
The doors of this house are never closed
For those who like to come inside for honest reasons
Or just to share a simple cup
Of coffee on the front porch
This house knows
Neither age nor fashion
Does not swing with anything that forms
Under pressure
The windows of this house are
Always open
Even when closed at night
In this house you do not ever need
To doubt yourself since
Everything is made by yourself for yourself and others
You do not even need to leave
This house for work because now
The work comes to you
When ready
Because the house has such suitable bright rooms
Green leaves everywhere
That everything that belongs into it
Does fit perfectly
The yellow house does not really know
Clock time
Although it knows very well how to
Accommodate earthly rhythms and make
Things work playfully
The walls and facade of this house are always colourful
And change according to seasons and mood
This is a poem that is never finished
Just like the house
And so It shall be
Right...

You write

In the classroom

black and white are not really

they much rather
complement
each others'
blissful specialness
revealing
all the million shades
in between
To this clever child who will always do well ❦
