Grey
The Red Woman Apr 2019
Everything is grey.
My mood,
my feelings,
my world.
A greyzone,
so I make my lungs pitch black
hoping for
another colour

the wind
The Red Woman Nov 2019
i opened my window
and the wind blew in
turning over a page
telling me
that it was time
to start a new chapter

The Red Woman Jul 2019
i’m so scared to

but you
i would let you

i’m just afraid that
it’s not what
you
want

A tired cliché
The Red Woman Apr 2019
i'm tired of
sounding like a
cliché
but probably even more
tired
of the fact that it's normal
to feel
what i feel
and to experience
what i have experienced

a specific person
The Red Woman Jun 2019
i want to write about a

itself

My favourite actor
The Red Woman Apr 2019
my favourite actor
nothing less than perfect
my whole world, all i saw

but then you became something else
someone else
even though you were wearing the same mask
as you did when we first met

on the outside the same
but on the inside you changed
therefore i still watch you
as you perform in the crowded hallways

how do i heal from a loss of someone who hasn't died
He changed. Everything he does is like an act. I just thought that we were special, and there was no act with me. He changed into something that I couldn't recognize, and I was pushed away. I watch the face of a boy I loved, on a person I can no longer recognize everyday. Now I am left, trying to heal from a loss of someone who technically isn't dead.

dear ex friend
The Red Woman Jun 2019
dear ex friend
when did you
fall out of love
with me
with our friendship
with our memories

was it when you moved back
or when you got a girlfriend

actually
why
and when doesn’t
matter
what matters is that
you left
when i needed you the most
(note for him in my language, even though he’ll never see) Kære tevelis. Du er en nar. Du forlod mig. Bare fordi du fik en kæreste. Jeg troede os to og alt vi havde gjort var specielt. Jeg har altid forsvaret dig. Altid. Og altid værdsat dig og husket dig. Du er sådan en idiot. Jeg er så sur på dig, men jeg ønsker dig kun alt godt, så jeg lader dig være. **** dig. Farvel Mantas.

Aspect ratio
The Red Woman Apr 2019
i know that they're
"small things",
but
you don't know
my world's
aspect ratio
My mind works in a very mysterious way, and the 'smallest' things can push me over the edge, or trigger something in me. In the beginning I felt like a total outcast because of it. Now I have realised, that not every person has the same aspect ratio.

flower petals
The Red Woman Aug 2019
flower petals
look so pretty
falling down
as gently as
the touch of our
fingertips

but they die
and so does our love
but even in death
they look so pretty
and yet again
so does our love

loss
The Red Woman Apr 2019
all my life
i've been met by pain
and loss
loss of
family members
because they believed my lying father
loss of
a family friend
because he could no longer endure life
loss of
elderly rolemodels
because a sickness took them away
loss of
best friends
because i became too much of a wreck
and somehow
in the meantime
i lost myself

my inspiration
The Red Woman Jul 2019
in my life
it has been hard to
draw inspiration from
people

i’ve been let down
so many times
that it was hard to
get up

but then i saw
her
same as
me
but different
so much more
more than she thinks of
herself

now she inspires me
and i hopefully her
a friendship
with eternal love
support
and inspiration
This is for my dear friend Kristine. A soul like me; but in my view, so much more ❤️

alarming
but at the same time

i know that it's dangerous

in one go

and now i'm crying
black
you made me cry
i knew it would happen
I always let the toxic people into my life. I know I shouldn't, but I can't help it. And in the end, they destroy me. I knew it would happen.

i felt so empty inside
that i would rather feel like dying
than feel like nothing

and i wanted him to leave
but i couldn't make him
and when he finally did leave
