    Poem: Life in my Hand

     

     

    I can’t keep up with the world
    Since it tries to act as a double edge sword
    The more I kill the enemy
    The more it pierces through me
    In the end, I don’t have anything to defend
    In the end, should I pretend
    Not to be hurt
    And just smile
    When in fact I am about to die
    The string of faith is not so strong
    They break as you walk along
    Rip apart when you start creating art
    And when you close yourself inside
    Do you think you will die with pride?
    The sword keeps pushing inside of you no matter what you do
    No matter what you think
    No matter what you feel
    In the end, you’ll see what’s fake and what’s real
    Emotions and facts combined in life’s artifacts
    When you see one run
    Because harm will be done with one look
    That’s all that it took
    That’s all what it ever takes when you gaze
    And that’s not the end of the story
    Because you are driving a freaking lorry
    To an unknown destination
    Through the forest of procrastination
    The mountains of your desperation
    And the roads of the great depression
    Yet you are there sitting on your comfy chair
    Goin’ 80 miles per hour
    Screaming about life being sour
    The favorite thing about it is not knowing where you are going
    Because if you knew, what would you change, what would you be ever able to do?
    I don’t know me, I don’t know you
    What I really want to do is create myself
    Mold the me into whatever I want to be
    Stay true to the values I hold so dearly
    And preserver
    Life is not all about defense or attack
    Even if the double end sword will get me one day
    I will be able to say my last words
    They will echo to the chamber of life and death, in between
    Do you know what I mean?
    It will reach the end of the world, the end of the universe
    Because it will be like a fire from a verse
    It will hit deep and wake the gods up from their sleep
    Then, you ask me, what will happen?
    What will become of you?
    What will become of me?
    I don’t know a thing about you, but I will go out smiling, what will you do?

    Poem: My heart is always running

     

     

    My heart is always running
    Its always on a rough path
    And I always hope it doesn’t trip and falls It already has fallen so many times
    But always getting up
    Always running
    Because its a heart that doesn’t stop
    Its my heart that I push forward
    And with each fall it gets up
    It gets stronger
    And starts running towards you
    The one that will be there when it falls
    Than our hearts will be one
    And they run , they run towards a new goal
    Reaching for the stars
    We will be one

    Poem: I won’t sleep tonight

    I won’t sleep tonight

    So are we staying this way?
    What can I say I felt in love with you
    And now my heart beats only for you
    I wanted this since a long time
    But nobody was close to me
    And if they got close to me, they would fly away
    Because of the differences, the irregularities
    But I was still breathing
    Like a teenage dreamer
    What can I say I’ve always thrown love away
    Yeah you know, I wasn’t that though tho
    But I got infected by you
    I was always fearless
    But when I am around you, it’s like I am a hero in a movie
    I want to protect you
    What can I say
    So are we staying like this
    And I always said “Love won’t find it’s way to me”
    But than it hit me
    When you found me
    Love found it’s way
    They said god blessed me
    Good life, Good looks and money
    But I never cared about god anyway
    So I threw all that away
    I just wanted to be me
    Can you see the real me?
    So if you are staying, just say
    I am still breathing, my heart is still beating
    But it something wrong with it
    I look at you and know the reason why
    My heart skips a beat or two when I think about you
    And I feel free
    I told my mother I’d grow up one day
    But it ain’t to today
    What can I say
    I am still breathing
    Falling in love with you every evening
    And I spent so many sleepless nights because of you
    When I thought I’d fall asleep I tough about you
    My heart went racing and I stayed awake
    The colors of the world I never seen before, I see in you
    And whats the craziest part of this is you
    It was all planned out until you walked into my life
    And than the plan was just blown away by the wind of change
    I had to rearrange my whole life
    Started to rotate around you and my mind was gone
    The only thing I think about, is you
    And I can’t keep myself away from you
    So we are staying this way
    Let the wind blow as away
    Together floating flying away
    And again I won’t sleep tonight
