O scarecrow, dressed elegantly
- in worn-out shoes, ragged old hat,
on which black crow sits in dignity
and stares off into this distance where forest sad
- you certainly dream about traveling
into these wheat fields, grasses adorned with flowers
that you could lose your scarecrow's soul
running happily towards the horizon...
But you stand here, alas, forever lost in thoughts,
unable to understand where the restriction comes from,
with your straw heart always split
between both powerlessness and want.
Funny thing, my dear scarecrow - to have
so much on your own and not to.

Only poems that I've ever tried to write myself come from a time when I was 22 or 23 years old and there are only a few of them. Enjoy!
I’m stricken by the sight of you,
You cleave my soul in two,
One side wants to have you,
The other wants to run!
all night long
we stay up
I miss out on sleep
to talk to you
you kiss me sweetly
to take my pants off
all night long
we stay up
for different reasons
I have no excuses for all of my abuses
I'm afraid to get close to you
Cuz' I can't say no to you.
We have been apart for so long
Hiding feelings so strong
Every time you get close, I push you away
Cuz' I know I'd fall in love with you again
Even if it was just for one day
I am so tempted but then I retreat
But missing you is no easy feat
Think of you often as I like to do
Wishing and wishing for just one day with you
So one day I hope you ask
Cuz' I can't say no to you...

If love is a two way street
I'm the person on the sidewalk
the third wheel
It's easy to be most confident
When the action is present
When the purpose is known
But give yourself nothing but time to see
Nothing but quite days of drifting snow
And there in the waiting you will find
That the precious thing which you wanted most
Was just another line of string
In a wrapped up life slowly being unrolled
Whatever we want, is most often a human want.
They come and go
could possibly go wrong
If they just
You said you were my Guardian Angel
That you would come back
10 years time
Im so naive
I dont need you
I know i dont
But i sure as hell want you
Why are people so cruel? And why am i so naive? Why cant i grow up?
You and I are two souls fighting to be the same body
We wish to absorb both into one
Merge lips, merge tongue, merge flesh and bone
We each claw to have executive power
We don't want to be together but we don't want to be alone.
We are hate stronger than immovable force
We are love as an immovable object
But this is not a universe of parallels
We kid ourselves to believe both can exist
I will not be stopped
You will not be moved
Let the battle to see who is wrong begin.
Whoever is standing in the end will win.
All is fair in love and war
And when it's both, rules are no more
I'll use my teeth and nails to make you bare
I'll torture you until you can no longer endure
You'll bow to my will like a **** in the wind
And I will be your master in the end.
So in hand to hand combat let us make love
What we could not say with kisses
Let us tell with blows
Leave your marks upon my skin
For neither of us can be gentle again.
