Maja Sep 15
"There’s too many”,
And they looked at me.
Did someone stab me?
It felt like it.
And then they said my name.
Did someone twist the knife?
It hurts.

Maja Aug 30
it’s okay
no, i’ll pay
even though you bought it
even though you said it
what I did was clearly wrong
no *******
but i’ll play along

barely a meter away
i can hear them
so why can’t they hear me
i can see them
so why can’t they see me
it’s like i’m invisible
it’s like i’m mute
in reality
i’m just me
and they are just them
and we are close
but we’re a world
of friends away

Fire with Fire
Maja Jul 21
You don't fight
fire with fire

that makes it burn brighter

You don't pour fuel
to the flame

for it to tame

Anger leads to anger
it never leads to good

if a match is lit
don't give the fire

Don't make it hotter

don't fight
fire with fire

use water.

Maja Jul 20
I don’t want to be alone,
and don’t want to feel lonely

I want to fly with somebody,
to rise with somebody,
to cry with somebody
to die with somebody,

To be able to be,
never alone,

And when I fall,
to have somebody to fall with me

Maja May 8
Life was
like being dropped from a hundred feet
then asked to run on broken legs

was like being told to drink acid,
then asked to speak without a tongue

Life was
like being set on fire,
then asked why

you’re burning

The Sun
Maja May 8
I was with you for so long,
you became a part of my world.
Like the sun that rises every morning.

Until you were gone.
And the sun didn’t rise.
And everything
got so
It's not until something is lost,
that you understand,
you had something to lose.

It's the little things
Maja Mar 8
It’s the little things
that makes us.

It’s that hug before bed
It’s those ’love you’s that are said

It’s the little things
that makes us.

It’s the smile from far away
The gaze that asks if you’re okay

It’s the little things
that makes us.

And it’s
the little things
that breaks us.

You can't.
Maja Jan 21
You can’t hit me and hug me

You can’t hate me and love me

You can’t ask me a question
And ignore the answer

You go either left
Or you go right

You can’t pull me
In both directions

You don’t.

You can’t.

Yet you do
If you drag me in opposite directions
I'll be pulled apart

Every motion
Maja Jan 21
He was a mountain.

She was the ocean.

Reaching for the stars,
Bound by his roots

Still and storm
Black and blue

She was the ocean
Beating against his rock

He was a mountain
And waves could not a mountain block

A bottomless fountain
Breaking with every motion

He was a mountain


She was an ocean

To do

Things don't

Unless there's someone
doing them

broken art
Maja Oct 2020
I was born a blank canvas

Now I’ve been painted with scars

Scars in my mind

Scars in my heart

I was born an empty sheet

Now I’m broken art
I was born, empty like space
meant to be filled with stars
Instead, my skin is littered with scars.

I want to be immortal
Maja Oct 2020
I want to be immortal
I want to be remembered

The day I’m forgotten
Is the day I die
Inspired by "Glorious"

good intentions
Maja Oct 2020
you fought with good intentions
but for all the wrong reasons
"The road to hell is paved with good intentions"

Bend or break
Maja Oct 2020
There are different kinds of fragility
One that bends,
And one that breaks

Step on a flower,
It withers

Step on a bomb
It explodes
Be careful with both,
a bomb may be dressed as a flower,
but you won't know until it has blown

To hold up the halo
Maja Oct 2020
I took ten lives
to save a thousand

I lost a battle
to win a war

To hold up the halo
I got my horns,
because I cannot take the rose,
without taking all its thorns.
Does the end justify the means?

can the means justify the end?

the end
Maja Sep 2020
There is not a ”the end” to a story.
It’s just that the rest was never written down.
never written down or read
Sep 2020 · 313
look at the sky
Maja Sep 2020
”look at the sky - it’s crying”

”what for?”

”well, why does anyone cry?”

”because there’s too much inside those clouds.
it’s too heavy for them to bear, so the raindrops have to fall.”
Sep 2020 · 386
Stormy night
Maja Sep 2020
See that flash of light,
white, hot rage
Hear the roaring thunder,
the rattle of a cage
Feel the wind
blow up a storm
Then know the sun,
embrace so warm

win or lose
Maja Sep 2020
If you have nothing to lose.
Then it doesn’t matter if you win.

If you bet your all to win,
Then you won’t lose.
You win.
You lose.
But you don't fail.

to create a monster
Maja Sep 2020
If man creates a monster.
Who is then truly the monster?

The creator.

Or the created.

The brighter the darker
Maja Sep 2020
The brighter the light,
the darker the shadow.

The brighter the smile,
the darker the mind.
It's the brightest smiles that hide the darkest minds

A muscle
Maja Sep 2020
The heart is a
And to grow
A muscle needs to
Through hurt, you heal.
You break, you grow.
What doesn't **** you, makes you stronger.

Being an Artist
Maja Sep 2020
The thing about being an artist.

People only look at the finished work.

Not at the soiled hands which made it.
You don't know how low I went,
to write something deep

You don't know the things I had to do,
To find my material

You don't know how I broke my hands,
to create the art before you
Jun 2020 · 295
Maja Jun 2020
Goodness comes not from your heart, which is an *****,
but from the memories and choices, you chose to do
Not from the heart as some say. The heart is merely an ***** that everyone has. Both bad people, and good people. Having a heart does not make you a good person.
Doing good deeds for the good of people makes you a good person.

I've been thinking
Maja Jun 2020
I write this,
completely in my right state of mind.

I’m not insane,
But I’ve concluded that is not the case of all mankind.

Why do we exist?
would it not be better with us gone?

I’ve been thinking,
and I think the line has been drawn.

I’ve been thinking, about us,
and why where here.

I think, all things considered,
we should just disappear.
Seriously. Humans.

the moon
Maja Jun 2020
The moon isn’t meant to be warm
it’s not meant to be bright,
the reason we see it,
is because of a reflection of the sun’s light.

The moon isn’t meant to be warm
The way it shines is cold
a silver light,
not fire and gold

You don’t compare,
night and noon
the sun is the sun
and the moon is the moon

when they ask
Maja Jun 2020
when people ask,
they don’t really want to know.
they just want you to tell them,
what they already think.

Maja May 2020
People don't know when the crack in the ground starts.
They only know when it breaks and they fall.

love or hate
Maja May 2020
What is the most dangerous, between hate and love?
They both makes us blind,
one makes us ignore,
the other makes us find
May 2020 · 401
don't fix me
Maja May 2020
life has its tricks,
sometimes, it’ll hit you with bricks,
but even if I crack, I’m still me.
Just because I’m broken,
doesn’t mean there’s anything to fix.
I just need some help to find myself. Not to create someone else.
May 2020 · 166
Maja May 2020
What is our purpose?
That doesn’t matter.
we are humans,
and there is no answer.
What is the meaning of life?
I don't know.
You decide.

A lie
Maja May 2020
A lie is not a lie
until someone says it is
until someone tells the truth,
The truth a lie only is
it's not a lie if you believe it
May 2020 · 256
one battle
Maja May 2020
people fight wars,
but often forget that one battle is all that is needed to win.
Apr 2020 · 249
I’ve fought myself before
Maja Apr 2020
I’ve fought myself before,
ready to win at all cost
I’ve already gone to war,
and I’ve already the war lost
I can't win against myself.
Apr 2020 · 178
I don’t care
Maja Apr 2020
I don’t really care,
what someone says to me,
  I’ve heard those words a hundred times,
  I’ve said those and agree

You can **** me, try some more
I don’t care about your crimes
  I’ve felt the knife before,
  I’ve killed myself a thousand times

The words you speak,
I’ve already spoken.
  and you can’t break me.
  because I’m already broken.
You can't hurt me when I've already hurt myself.
You can't break me. I'm already broken.

built on lies
Maja Apr 2020
A relationship built on lies is bound to collapse.
A lie may travel the world before the truth has even put its shoes on,
but the truth will eventually get on a plane and catch up.
It's inevitable. No matter how long it may take.
Trust is important.
Don't betray it.
Apr 2020 · 303
Maja Apr 2020
I can see bruises on your face,
and something broken in your eyes.
I can see the scars from your wings,
from when you fell from the skies

And from the skies,
even further.
And further even more.
From heaven to earth,
down to the last floor

Pray for the sinners,
to learn from their fall,
but no one prayed for you,
the one who fell the furthest of them all.
No one prayed for you, satan, the most sinner of them all. The one who needed it the most.
Apr 2020 · 574
Maja Apr 2020
Don’t be afraid of the monster.

The monster was once a normal being,
until something made it a monster.

Don't be afraid of the monster.

Be afraid of the thing that created it.
Maja Apr 2020
tears are the blood of the heart.
when you bleed from your eyes,
it’s because something is broken inside
Apr 2020 · 225
Here's to the feeling
Maja Apr 2020
Here's to the feeling,
that we all feel,
when words don't work,
and the struggle is real.

Cue something deep,
cue something bright.
Here's to the feeling,
that I want to write.

The feeling of failure,
stuck in your mind,
when the right words are lost,
nowhere to find.

So here's to the feeling,
that every poet knows.
Here's to the feeling,
that makes up this prose.
You're not alone in not being able to write. Sometimes it doesn't work. That's okay. We all feel that way.
That's okay.

I can too
Maja Apr 2020
I wrote this for myself,
not for its appeal,

you can say what you want,
but so can I feel

Freedom of speech,
that is written in ink

you can say what you want
and I can think what I think

Yell your opinion,
try to change my mind

try, try
to make me as blind

It’s my decision,
right to decide,

You can say what you want,
but so can I

Write what you want,
sing your choice of song

you can believe that you're right,
but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong
Just because you have the right to an opinion, doesn't mean I don't.
You can think that your right
but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.
Apr 2020 · 263
For someone
Maja Apr 2020
For someone who is never really present,
I can always feel you here

For someone who doesn’t listen,
you always seem to hear

For someone who rarely talks,
you have an awful lot to say

For someone who never leaves,
you don’t ever really stay
For someone. For you.
Apr 2020 · 253
Maja Apr 2020
Fly, light, like a dancer,
spin, stop and ask
but there is no answer

Jump, dip, scream your question,
welcome your sentence
of death at confession

bad things.
good things.
what are those?
everyone is both,
so no one f*cking knows.
Moral is something we decide.

If you care
Maja Apr 2020
Save me if you must.
Love me if you dare.
Turn me into dust.
Leave me if you care.
A short poem about something.
What is still not certain. But then again, is anything?

die twice
Maja Mar 2020
I heard you die twice,
once when they bury you in the grave
and the second time is the last time
that somebody mentions your name

dead already
Maja Mar 2020
"I need you", you said,
"Without you, I’d be dead."

I locked my eyes into yours with a gaze steady.
I said, "If you can’t live without me,
why aren’t you dead already?"
don't lie to me
Mar 2020 · 222
a price
Maja Mar 2020
Everything comes at a price,
but it’s not always the one buying
that will have to pay
People do bad things without having bad things done to them. Instead, other people suffer because of the actions of other people.
Life is fair, to some more than others.
Mar 2020 · 235
Our nature
Maja Mar 2020
Our nature is not that of beauty,
we are all monsters,
inhabitants of cruelty.

Give someone power over another
and you will quickly see

that our nature comes forth
when set free.

We are all monsters at heart,
some are just better at hiding it.

Don’t say you’re not bad,
then you would be bad as well as a hypocrite
