Dead in Time
Maja May 27
To be looking for giants
And seeing nothing but dust

Are we going to make our own
And tower over space?

We're too small
I’ve already forgotten our face

I don’t think the weight of our footsteps
Are heavy enough to leave a trace

So we will die
I only hope the ones after
Remember we were here

Welcome to our grave
Hello and Bye
Welcome to our planet earth
This is where our bodies lie

falling to heaven
Maja May 26
The ledge was slippery,
Like my mind at the moment.
A time in space
that didn’t seem to matter.
I fell,
I didn’t jump
- I was pushed.
I might have made the leap,
but I never made the choice.
I might have made no sound,
but I never had a voice.
I fell,
but the truth is still that
I didn’t jump
- I was pushed.
I silently drowned.

I had been dead for a long time
before I even hit the ground

The Meaning of Life
Maja Nov 2022
"Death gives meaning to life."
It makes me so angry, because,
How ridiculous is it not?
That we accept an end?

Death does not give meaning to life.
- We do.
And meaning is not something to be given
It is something to be taken.
With every breath -
With every step -
And every leap you take
You create your purpose.

"Death gives meaning to life."
Living does.

You do not read a book for the end
-you read it for the journey.
You should not wake up just to go to bed
-you wake up to enjoy the day.

You do not live to die.
You live to live.

life like fire
Maja Nov 2022
Human life is funny. I tend to think of us as candles.
And we flicker.
We’re small.
We die.

But, you feed that candle, it can be a fire.
And we burn.
We blind.
We remember.

A screaming cry
Maja Aug 2022
I heard that
Anger is a secondary emotion.
I want to scream
And tell them to look at me.
I want to beat them up
So they feel like I do.
But I think
I actually just want to cry
And stop myself from hurting.

fear of hope
Maja Aug 2022
Is it hope
That we feel
When we stare into the dark
And hope something will stare back

Or is it fear
That we feel
When we hope for something
In nothing

Maja Sep 2021
"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 2021
it’s okay
no, i’ll pay
even though you bought it

what I did was clearly wrong
no *******

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 2021
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 2021
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 2021
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 2021
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 2021
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.
Jan 2021 · 708
You can't.
Maja Jan 2021
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 2021
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

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

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.”

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

You break, you grow.

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 · 283
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.

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

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 · 114
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

one battle
Maja May 2020
people fight wars,
but often forget that one battle is all that is needed to win.
Apr 2020 · 226
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.

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 · 249
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 · 147
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

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.
Apr 2020 · 162
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.
