Entanglement

A dance, two spirits—
push and pull.
  They
don‘t know each other well
enough just yet. Can you hear
the stars flickering in eternal
  distance?
But these spirits, these souls,
they are as much here as they
are there; they are as much
  separate
as they are just so much alike.
A beautiful illusion, this life,
this dance where we’re already
  one.

Wild and free

I want to be so much more than this.
I want to make this one life mine, want to
expand into all kinds of directions.

I want to see you in me, want to feel more
you and me, want to forget about what I learned
when I was just so young.

I want to dance, want to laugh and paint and move and spill these glasses of wine that unleash this so deeply wild side in me.

I want to live;
   that‘s all I ever really wanted.

Earth’s balance

Love is what keeps earth’s
balance, what keeps us calm
amidst all the insanity, this complexity.
Real or not, this world, who knows,
but with love, with love we suddenly know,
with love we suddenly just are, we are enough.
Everything just suddenly is enough.

This love

This love, it cannot be tamed, it cannot be kept safely within boundaries, it cannot last forever but it sure can be ignited every day anew. It can warm us from the inside on those frosty winter days, it can be the flickering but steady light in the seemingly endless dark. Whenever we are ready, whenever we open ourselves up to the world, to another, it can be there within us.
This love, it will not carry us like the wind carries the clouds, but instead it will be the hot fuel that keeps us going through day and night, through bright and dark, through sickness and health. It will be what takes us on that crazy ride through valleys and tunnels and high up on these mountains and back down, reminding us of what it means to be alive and to love and be loved.
This love, it can be anything we want it to be, it can be all we ever need or nothing at all. This love, it’s ours to shape, and ours to nourish and if we do so well, we can live from it forever.

Tick, tock.

I lie awake
Thinking of you
While the moon shines bright.
Tick tock.
Tick tock.
Time passes by
But you remain 
In the center of my night 
Where I wonder how you are
And what kind of thoughts
May have crossed your mind today
While all I can do
Is keep wondering 
As time goes by.
Tick tock.
Tick tock.

Tell me

Tell me
how much longer will the birds have to sing
will the squirrels have to swing
will the sun have to shine
will the rain have to fall
will the seasons have to crawl
will my heart have to beat
will my body have to sleep
before I can see you again.
