pretty girl
Sofie Jan 2019
pretty girl,
the boys are out to get you
they'll take away your flower
they want what's only yours

pretty girl,
blossom slowly,
stay in your cocoon for now
for summer can only last so long
and soon it will be over
Sofie Jan 2019
He told me that when he looked at me,
he saw himself

Back then,
it made me smile

But now I've realized
that whenever our eyes met,
he was reminded of
what a broken soul
he actually was

I was the reason for his constant suffering

I loved you
Sofie Mar 2019
I feel your love,
your touch,
when the sun
chooses to shine,
my skin

I see your face,
your smile,
whenever I look
at my reflection
in the mirror

I hear your voice,
your unforgettable
as rain falls
melodically from

I remember the pain,
the unbearable
when I realized
I loved you
but I had to
let you go

can you hear me?
Sofie Dec 2018
can you hear me
when I talk to the moon at night,
wishing you were doing the same

this is the time I need you to listen;
listen to my heart, calling your name

foolish lovers
Sofie Dec 2018
we're foolish lovers
living a lie

we're foolish lovers
stuck in the past

we're fools
for trying
to love each other

for we both know
we're only
fooling ourselves

we're foolish lovers
bound to regret

that we're foolishly pretending
not to love
someone else

their wings were ready
and i know you were not
but remember they've built a home
right within your burning heart

it feels amazing to let go
when the hand you held onto
was covered in thorns

like my dreams

they used to be sweet

don't fall in love
Sofie Feb 2019
it is only right
if it feels like you're floating;
don't you go falling

and you can scream
from the top of your lungs;
your echo won't sound

what was overshadowing noise
has now become silence

Lose to find love within
Sofie Aug 2021
The more I lose,
the closer I get to myself
Sofie Jan 2019
you know,
I never mean to think about you,
not this often anyway,
but you appear in my mind like a broken record,
as if you never really left,
the lines of our last verse remain unfinished,
and it haunts me everyday,
because you are a song I can never forget,
you are the words I will always remember,
the melody that surrounds my heart at all times
you know,
I never mean to think about you,
but somehow you are still here,
in my head, in my mind, in my heart
you just are an unforgettable song
Sofie Jan 2019
he feels the happiest during winter
the season where everything dies
for when everyone else is depressed
he gets a chance to feel somewhat alive

kiss of sunshine

a touch of sunshine
to me
it feels the same

seek and hide
Sofie Apr 2019
i try to imagine
why you seek and hide
is it all just to feel
less lonely at night?
for it always seems that
what i hate the most,
the word goodbye,
it always slips off of
your tongue in the
moment we say hi
you seek the sun
yet sit in the shade
but what will you do
when the light of the
day fades?
will you see that
switching the words
makes it no less
of a childish game?
will you then realize
it could all be too late?

on the other side
Sofie Mar 2019
you build a wall
they climb it
you piece it back
they break it

for they’ll always
want to know
what it is like
on the other side

we walk on the same streets
Sofie Jul 2019
we walk on the same streets
but i am never by your side
and you, never by mine
but i can always almost see you,
always almost touch you,
and though we couldn't be
further from each other,
your footsteps,
they shake the ground
beneath my feet,
your shadow,
it follows my every move
and you,
you are opaque yet so translucent,
crystal clear yet you blur before my eyes
and we,
we are both aware of one another,
yet we never leave, never meet,
and never do we walk in the same direction
but still we walk on the same streets,
just not together

'I won't let go'
Sofie Jan 2019
I still hear your voice, crying through the night
It echos in my head, saying 'I won't let go'
And the walls in my room creak with every tear
that falls from my cheek to my lips, tasting salty
Like the final kiss you placed so indifferently on me
while my heart was screaming 'please don't go',
words that my mouth was never able to tell
And now the night shares the story of us again,
so I listen foolishly to keep you a little closer,
for the promise you could never keep
was the one that made you stay
Sofie Jan 2019
love never hurt you,
he did

floral garden for you
Sofie Dec 2018
a flower of beauty
I could never forget
bloomed the very first
moment we met

so I bought flower seeds
and I planted a few
for each hour and each day
I would spend loving you

as our love was in blossom
the flowers were too
now I've grown a floral garden  
dedicated to you
Sofie May 2019
what does the sea look like from down under?
does it still reflect the sadness within my eyes
or will it turn the corners of my mouth upwards instead?
is it silent
or will sounds of death and aching hearts remain the same?

what does the top of the mountain look like?
does grass stay green all year
and will flowers bloom in colours i could have never imagined?
is it lonely
or do we hug each other and say i love you like we used to?

what does it feel like to lay on top of clouds?
i would like to think i have known
but the feeling i must have somehow forgotten
for now all i do is fall through

why i dream
Sofie Jan 2019
to see the skies painted in light blue
to feel my spine be kissed by you
to hear children laugh a little longer
to see friendships grow a little fonder
to hear music in silence
to stop poverty and violence
to watch your eyes shine brighter than ever
to hear you say that i'm not pretty but clever
to imagine the future and long for the past
to try and escape the world of the sad
to create a new reality with my own limits
for what would our world be without dreams in it?

Yet it strikes like lightning

Sofie Feb 2019
i saw flowers in the sky
as stars were falling to the ground
this life without you
upside down
Sofie Mar 2019
i said,
i could feel my heart breaking,
it was aching for months

he said,
love is just a chemical reaction,
it is all in your head

and suddenly i felt my heart
falling to pieces
all over again

the melody of my heart
Sofie Dec 2018
my heart sang for you
in melodies you hadn't heard before
it was infatuating to you
so you listened every night
but at break of dawn
when the stars no longer aligned
you left my singing heart alone
with it's melody in mind

Bright yellow
Sofie Sep 2019
When I dream of you
You shine in bright yellow
And each stroke of light
Makes me weak to me knees
But I won’t ever land on roses
For my knees are bruised in blue
Yet my dream carries on
And it seems to never really end
But I won’t mind if only
I get to see you shine in bright yellow
Over and over again
406 · Feb 2019
for how long?
Sofie Feb 2019
for how long will
you remain your own
because you are too
to set yourself free,
to let yourself
be vulnerable,

for how long will
you continue to tolerate
the dimming
within your eyes,
the dust falling from
your heart
because you just
let love in?
405 · Dec 2018
last goodbye
Sofie Dec 2018
i kissed you
not just once
but twice
because i somehow knew
this would be
our last goodbye
381 · Dec 2018
Sofie Dec 2018
I'm not afraid to say goodbye -
the word feels numb on my tongue
for I've said it so many times

cold hearts
Sofie Dec 2018
and now I know
that 'I love you'
was a lie
for cold hearts
only beat
to stay alive
You don't love me. A heart like yours doesn't love; it pumps blood.

I look pretty for boys
Sofie Dec 2018
I fix my lipstick
He says, "no more!
with all that makeup,
you must be insecure"

I do my hair
He says, "what for?
it honestly looked better before"

I get my nails done
He says, "so fake,
you know, boys like it the natural way"

I'm sorry to inform you,
but I do this all for me,
so whatever you think about my looks,
I simply disagree

The makeup and the dress up,
it gives me so much joy,
so won't you please stop thinking
that I'd do this for a boy
356 · Jan 2019
our love
Sofie Jan 2019
our love is a game
an everlasting war
that we can never win
for we are afraid
of caring too much
so we hide
and we quiet
it is a game
we are bound to lose
333 · Jan 2019
remember me, she said
Sofie Jan 2019
"remember my face," she said,
"so you'll be forever reminded
of the kiss marks
you left on my mouth"

"remember my name," she said,
"so you'll know exactly
which grave to spit on
when I am no longer around"
332 · Oct 2020
I’m sorry
Sofie Oct 2020
I wish I was unbothered
Or careless or free
But all of those things
I’m afraid I could never be

my first haiku
Sofie Jan 2019
i can see your smile;
as the sun above the clouds,
it shines from afar
I want to see you happy, and I know that you will be one day.

Believing in me
Sofie Nov 2020
I was too young to consider
that I was turning old
Days disappeared and we slept
Nearly never
I found peace in the night
And loneliness wouldn't dare to touch me
I felt every emotion and I was
Far too comfortable
Until the day when the sun settled
Above the clouds
I could no longer see her
I forced myself to believe in something else
Never been so frightened by
Looking in the mirror
301 · Aug 2019
what’s left?

give in and let myself fall?

someone you loved

i used to see stars within your eyes
but now they stare blankly at mine
as if you have somehow forgotten
i was once someone you loved

Et lys i et vindue
Sofie Oct 2019
Et lys i et vindue
En hånd på en kind
Jeg mærker varme som kulde
Dit væsens hvirvelvind

Mon mørket lader sig overgive
Når lyset brændes til bund
Når du kærtegner mine læber
Kysser min mund

Et lys fra mit vindue
En ukendt profil
Jeg lader mørket være skillevæggen
Og natten vores mysterie

Du kigger uden at se
Og jeg er væk i et øjeblik
For netop det vi frygtede
Var sådan som det gik

Et lys i et vindue
Et fortrukket gardin
En endeløs nat
Og en dag vi aldrig fik

words unspoken
Sofie Aug 2019
it was written on pages
in texts, on notes
but still it lingers in your sheets
and though i feel it everytime
like warmth
embracing my body fully
it's still unspoken
even when we lay back to back
and i cant help but wonder
if your heart whispers it too
but your mind tells you no
