where is home -
if not in your arms,
if not in the smiles on your lips,
if not in your words.

where is home -
if "you" splits into here and there
and i can never be everywhere.

where is home -
if you here make me laugh while
i cry because you there are not here.

where is home -
if not in me.

we are young
Vivi Greene Jun 2018
ready to colour the world
the way we yearn for it
to shine -
it will be hard to paint
if we let them put us in chains

won't modify my mind.
don't you worry, oh!
i'm falling for you -
just not today.

meant to move
Vivi Greene Apr 2018
it is not possible
to stay the same.
there is movement!
we are all
meant to move.
i am still me -
just different, maybe
a brighter version.

lass uns explodieren
Vivi Greene Jan 2018
a feeble face twisted in a circled drop

sarcastic sceptism reaching the moon

internal innocence pleading to scream

tiny thoughts crying for change

moving minds ready to explode

wherever i go -
feeling safe,
feeling comfortable
to become
able to exist
for you.

a cliff
Vivi Greene Nov 2017
i'm balancing
on a cliff of memories and wishes
neither reminiscing too much
nor thinking a lot about the future.
where am i?
i think it is
the present.

just humans
Vivi Greene Sep 2017
today a black man told me:
our lips, our noses, our hearts -
they are all the same it's
just the melanin in our
skin that makes
people think we are different.
and I thought man - that's true,
but you could as well say we
are all just humans.

saying goodbye
Vivi Greene Sep 2017
i'm saying goodbye -
even if you don't
want to meet me again.

i'm saying goodbye -
knowing i will probably
never see you again.

i'm saying goodbye -
being sure i will never
love you again.

i'm saying goodbye -
to free my mind

therefore let's caress

and now?
Vivi Greene Jul 2017
I’m falling so deeply in
love with you
that I’m totally torn between
fearing my heart break and
enjoying the pain
you cause not loving me
but her.

Vivi Greene Jul 2017
how come I am only now
that I am sure leaving in a few weeks
getting to know you like I
always wished i would?

be active or inactive?
fight or wait?
push or pull?
each decision leads
me in a totally
different direction.
which one do I want?
which one do I need?
I guess this gaping hole
of a missing answer
is impossible
to fill.

ode to weather
Vivi Greene May 2017
change my mind.
change my mood.
but don't change your changes.
cause I depend on you.
in every second, all of me
is following your path.
I try to keep smiling,
but you keep me down.
I try to stay calm,
but you make me drown.
when your light
is shining on me,
you warm my heart.
from the inside.
cause I depend on you.

growing up
Vivi Greene May 2017
What do I see when
I look back at
my childhood?
I catch a few glimpses
of long forgotten memories
and already achieved dreams,
but what is overwhelming is
the intense feeling of
warmth and security.

Who decides about what is pretty
if what really is beautiful
is the ability
to see the incredibility
in every single

addicted to thoughts
Vivi Greene Apr 2017
I breathe in
I breathe out
with my eyes closed,
try to empty
my mind
but images keep
swirling around
in my head,
I suppose I'm
addicted to thoughts.

tell me
what it is that
keeps you awake at nights
and distracts you
as daylight intends to
keep your attention focused.
do you care about what
makes my mind move?

a paradox
Vivi Greene Apr 2017
I guess
the greatest secret for every human
is the not knowing
of what’s going on
in the head of the ones
surrounding you.
now just realize
that they are aching to know
the same of you.
this paradox
sounds easy to get solved,
but so hard to become reality.

I lay flat
on the ground underneath
my warm skin I feel
the cold grass,
I sink into the earth as
we become one
while the first rays of sun
kiss my skin and
welcome me back
to life.

inner tree
Vivi Greene Mar 2017
an inner tree
rooted deep down in my body
keeps me going.
it is what some describe as
inner peace,
true happiness,
the source of love,
and I describe as
strength to deal
with everything that is not.

inspiring atmosphere
Vivi Greene Mar 2017
a hot, steaming coffee,
a deliciously soft and sweet cake,
relaxing music in an
urban café.
that's where I write
my poetry.

the place I call home
Vivi Greene Mar 2017
I had this feeling
once when I first flew
like a bird
to explore the world
and I came back to
the place I call home

I felt that I could only travel
when returning somewhere afterwards,
not somewhere - return to
the place I call home

I realised that I could only
call it home after having been away,
and that this feeling intensified
the longer I was surrounded by the foreign
before finding my way back to
the place I call home

but only now do I notice
how lucky I am
to have a place
I can call

a thought
Vivi Greene Mar 2017
How do you know that someone is your friend? There is no answer to that question. You just know. It's like falling in love. There is no exact moment, no defined way. It just happens. Therefore...shouldn't we also call that certain instant "to fall in friendship"? Sounds quiet pretty.

love letter to myself
Vivi Greene Mar 2017
I look in the mirror
and see a wonderful girl
with big brown eyes and short brown hair
I smile, what a contagious smile
I can't help but smile even broader
I muster my body
I think of all the perfect thin models
and embrace myself out of joy for not looking like them
I love all my weird habits
as well as my beautiful
character traits
and I love the fact that I'm
completely unperfect.
I appreciate everything
my life offers for me,
I am grateful for every instant
I am able to enjoy my surroundings.
I have to admit
I have fallen
deeply in love
with myself.

a thought
Vivi Greene Mar 2017
When two people meet - no matter if they are strangers or friends - two whole life stories connect. And for a moment these two people create another part - an equal part - together. Later on they continue living their lives, meeting other people and like this sharing another instant of mutual storytelling.

it may be the right person
a shivering in your body
and a feeling you can't forget
but when the time isn't right
all that
doesn't matter
everything you might imagine,
you hope for
needs the approval
of the whole universe,
of time

Vivi Greene Mar 2017
but happy
there is no energy
left in my body
and yet so much
to do
today I gave so much
and yet
do they expect so
much more
how on earth is anybody
going to fulfill all that?
at least I'm proud of what
I achieved.

pleasant anticipation
and beautiful memories.
That’s what I call art.

like travelling
Vivi Greene Feb 2017
life is a voyage.
you know one day it will end.
why do we tend to forget that so often?
when knowing that the end
comes soon you start enjoying things
quite more intensive.
it’s like travelling,
just a little longer.

Vivi Greene Feb 2017
take it all
too serious
don't make life
harder than it is
enjoy everything
not just the good parts
and feel free to
be happy
as well as being sad
so sit down and relax
and let it flow
like the waves of the
sea come and go
your emotions

Language gives people power.
Write it down and it won’t be forgotten.
Or at least it will be heard.
Will it be heard?
If you have got the opportunity
Then use it.
Make the words your own.
So that they will be heard.
And not be forgotten.

— The End —
