Spirit friends

I feel the spirits of those who passed
as if I’d been there too
when in darkness I find my peace
where there’s nothing I’ve got to do
in their words I find my truth
in their dreams, hopes and fears
long gone
but which I feel are so near
only they know where I’m now
in this deep sorrow of mine
that if I said I didn’t love
I’d be lying

where comfort lies

In death I find comfort
in life I search for it
sometimes I wonder
which path is really lit
under the moonlight I ponder
if I’ll ever be free
or if I’ll always regret
not having found Me.

Superficial days, superficial lives

It’s superficial
what can I say
but it gets me through
a superficial day
floating on the surface
of my emotions
cutting all the ties
dodging all commotion
I seem fine you see
and I won’t deny
let me love the dream I live in
b4 I have to say goodbye
my secret is my sin
my heart filled with pain
that I know alone
I’ll have to entertain.

the ashes of my tears

you opened up for me
told me there’s another ‘she’
and now your heart is cold
   for me
and where the cold wind blows
our love has been mistaken
for the cheap street bargain
that no one has taken
nowhere to run
we break apart together
I’m happier today
even though yesterday I was better
and so it goes
this is how true love unfolds
between the ashes of my tears
and the sweetness of your heart
my dear

My body is the home of violent emotions
Some of which I don’t understand
I ignore them and suppress them
But I’m not able to withstand.

Searching for the brightest light
Softly beaming in the darkest corner
I spot it and laugh out loud
But when I open my eyes, I feel the void.

Scary is to not know
Fear is to doubt
Will the void get out of control?
Is the promise land a hoax?

No way
I hit the breaks and I come home
The void is just a game I play
I know that. I feel that. It’s okay.

No hard feelings
Lies; of course there are
Darkness is full of them
Hidden in the birds, in the trees and in the sea.

I meditate and I sink
And slowly, I let myself be pulled back
I’m not speeding up the journey
Where to, if what I need is to get back to the start?

So I let darkness kiss my cheek
My eyes, my heart, and my feet
I invite it to sit with me
And let is show me what I need to see
