she was in pain
and when she was alone
the tears came out as rain
but she hid it so well that no one will ever know
how heavy it really was

I can't describe it
it's a feeling
just like air
I can't grab it

Like a flower
I will bloom again
As winter passes

Everyone wants some magical solution for their problems
But everyone refuses to believe in magic

The sun goes down,
The lights go out,
And there are the stars and the moon

Night falls and the wounds we try to pretend we don't have,
begin to haunt us

The night is so pure
It lets you think

Think about your mistakes or what you should have said
The moon nows all the secrets

Thats why I lay in my bed awake, thinking
Sometimes feeling empty and the next morning waking up to a new day

And just like the MOON, we must go to phases of emptiness to feel full again

Like Traffic

We are all people
You and me

Standing on a road watching the traffic
All people go a different way

But sometimes u meet someone
and they become so special
that you want them to stay

We were never meant for each other
but I'm glad that even for a moment
it felt like we were

you go left and I go right
I hope we cross again

Yesterday was the past
but I still think about it, that's not what I asked

Tomorrow is a new day
I'm looking forward to it, but that's okay

It's just that we live now
thats what I want to say
Just love today
Live your life

You gave me something

Sitting here
Staring to the world around me
Listening to something I want to hear
Waiting for you to come
Looking for the key
To open me

I have to go
To a place I don't know

I do it all for myself
Not for you

I wanna know another me
So that I can be free

I go to a place where I can think
Where I know what I want

I do it all for me
Its a place where I can see

That place is my mind
And there is the me, that I hope to find

Despite all those thoughts in my head
The tears in my eyes

"I'm fine" I will say

Always keep going and never give up

Finding myself back searching through all those thoughts

Something you have to give time

I am busy searching, it only takes a while

Then I will find it again
Like a little light in the darkness
I am a thinker. I have not been writing poems for that long, I may not be so good in English but I am trying. I now put all the words that come to my mind on paper, and that feels very good

you are strong enough to face it all,
even if it doesn't feel like it right now

How do you let go,
From what you want to keep?

You know I'm always there for you
And there they are again, my tears over my cheeks in blue

There is just one thing I have to do
and that's letting go
of YOU

You have shaped me into something
I never wanted to be

but that's okay,
I can't blame you

Everyone thinks of someone
but not everyone is thought of

The feeling that you are alone
With so many people around you

Cold and empty
All alone

You have to know
the sun and the rain,
to see all the colours of the rainbow

You there,

The one who is always ready for her friends with the best advice
The one that everyone wants to see happy
The one who believes in multiple opportunities
The one who always wants to see the positive in people

But broke deep inside
Sometimes you can take a step back

Sometimes they have expectations so high
Like a mountain with a top that can never be reached

But you will be alright
Take that step back
Just for a moment

you will not abandon someone
you're just there for yourself

Then come back as the best version of yourself
Be happy and smile
You deserve being you
And just never stop climbing that mountain
Take care of yourself!

Sitting on a swing

back and forth

up and down

Watching everything that happens around me

Only the swing is just a little too high

My legs float above the ground

I would prefer to stand with both feet on the ground

being one with the world

being one with everything that happens around me

I just have to grow a little bit

Time is ticking and passing by

but I, I'm standing still

Everything is going too fast around me

but I, I'm standing still

There are so many ways to move forward

but there is only one way to stand still

One step forward,

but what if this step is the wrong one?

One step back

I'm standing still again

Still as always

afraid to take the wrong step
This is the first one that I wrote.

— The End —
