I'm the minute man. I'm the one who stays, I'm the one who waits for all the people I know aren't coming. I'm the one who looks at the clouds, waiting for the rain. I'm the one who smiles in the dark, because you're hopping around in my head again.
A sunset doesn't have to be an ending, it can be the beginning of something that the daylight could never give us. For our most meaningful truths and our deepest fears only come out in the dark. I can't tell you why I sometimes feel like I'm losing you a little bit more with every … Continue reading Sunset
This feels like the beginning of something great. The start is rocky as always, but we'll get through it. Please be patient, I'm not going anywhere. But I'm terrified of you running away. The journey may just be three seconds long, but I'll enjoy every last one of it, as long as you're there too.
Yes, I'm fucked up. Yes, I'm crying on my way home. Again. And yes, I'm invested, you know that I am. I hate myself for being so weak. I hate myself for giving in. I don't know why I'm crying. I'm alright, I'll get home okay, thank you. That's what I tell the strangers who … Continue reading Cry
I'm ready to break down the walls I have built around myself. I'm ready to give in, completely and without a doubt on my mind. Jealousy was a friend of mine, not so long ago, now look at me. I'm telling myself not to worry, and somehow it works. I'm telling myself to just be … Continue reading I‘m Ready
Sometimes I just want to shout at the world and tell it to go fuck itself. Othertimes all I want is to be heard without actually saying anything. I can deal with the pain but not with the rage that comes hand in hand with it. I hate the aching feeling of having to break … Continue reading Hate
I'm soaring through the clouds, but there's concrete on my feet, constantly dragging me down. I'm happy like I can't remember I ever was, but there's a nagging thought in my head, constantly reminding me of reality. I'm feeling like I've finally found the way, but there's so many crossroads, constantly getting me off track … Continue reading Yes, but…
I don't need your big words and fancy sentences. I don't need your quotations of famous poets and people alike. I don't need the meticulous and the scrutinizing. I don't need your elaborate, instantaneous rivers of fearsome excuses. I don't need it to make sense all the time. All I need are tiny, meaningful truths.
Dance with me tonight, we'll let the music take the lead. Don't worry about stepping on my feet, because as we sink into the tune our legs start moving on their own. Thoughtlessly we swing around the room like Beauty and the Beast. Now turn, turn, and once again, until you almost lose your balance. … Continue reading Like There‘s No Tomorrow
He wrapped his arms around her and said "My love, I have to go." She buried her head in his chest and cried silent tears of pain. So many years have passed since then, but she's still sitting on the balcony, wondering where he might be. Wondering if he'll ever come back to look at … Continue reading I Have to Go
Even a bed made out of feathers can be uncomfortable at times, Because when you can't stop thinking your thoughts and contemplating your doubts there's no tranquilizer that could make you fall asleep. So you lay there, wide awake worrying about why you worry because there's really nothing wrong. You make it harder on yourself … Continue reading Tourist
Magic is real. Not in the Harry Potter sense, but some moments feel like they're from out of this world, as if something bigger than ourselves was trying to tell us Look! This is real too. I believe in this something else, you know. I believe that we are able to create something new, something revolutionary, if … Continue reading Something Else
Say that you need me and I'll ride across the ocean on my bike. Give me a reason not to think and I'll stop. Put your hand on the back of my head, I'm not quite sure if I'm still alive. Take a puff off of last night's cigarette, there are hearts on my lighter.
What the fuck are you doing walking home in the rain at 5am, after agreeing to something you knew you didn't want to do in the first place? And what else did you expect than the same old thoughts in your head? You're not even drunk, and that's probably the worst part. You're as sober … Continue reading Walk
So, tell me, how does it feel to be you? Is it a good feeling? Are you happy with who you are? Can you look in the mirror and smile? Can you be friends with the reflection you see? And if the answer to these questions isn't yes, then what are you even still doing … Continue reading Playground
Plug in the record player, I'll be right there, I just have to finish this letter. Pour us both another glass, we're not nearly drunk enough to be talking about things like this. Light our cigarettes with the matches we found on the floor, there's only ten left anyway. Show me what it's like to … Continue reading I Want to Make You My Problem
Goodbye. There's heartache in these words, Because you've been gone too long for me to remember your face. The nights feel colder than they used to.
I'm quiet, you know. You made a first impression, I felt that you were strong. I don't like talking much, except when it's about myself. You like to talk about everything else. I'm quiet, you know. I hide behind my poetry and bury myself in dreams. You dream too, I know. Maybe even more than … Continue reading Quiet
It's so sobering to sit outside and listen to the rain. The splashing drops resonate in my ears like the most beautiful melody that has ever been written. Perhaps it's wasted on me.
A figure in the feeble light, A woman dressed in black. Her blue eyes shimmer through the cold mist. What would you choose, a world full of love or one full of pain? And with my eyes fixed on her black dress, I tell her the story of my sorrow and regrets. I'll always be … Continue reading Heaven Is Too Far Away
He was a force to be reckoned with, let me tell you that much. His hunger never seemed to be satisfied, he was always out looking for more. Mister Mole is what we called him, I never knew his real name. But I knew that he lived in fear of destroying everything he held dear. … Continue reading Mister Mole
Lay down beside me in silence for a while, We can watch the blood red moon from up here. Let me wrap my arms around you so we don't get cold, Let me hold your hand so you know you're not alone. Kiss me on the cheek so I can look back on it and … Continue reading Clouds
It's an endless back and forth, isn't it? Offense and defense are playing to a draw time and time again. No one side can ever truly win this pathetic war. There's no phoenix to rise from the ashes, because the ashes have been smothered by all the tears we have dropped onto them. And maybe … Continue reading Pathetic War
Maybe it's easier to just let all the madness pull me in. Maybe I should just stop trying, Stop hoping for something that will never happen, Stop looking at something that isn't real. But in spite of all the ups and downs, all the confusion and tears, I'm not tired of fighting. I'm not ready … Continue reading Give Up
Here we go again. Another night I destroyed because I got lost in my head. Who would ever want to be with someone as broken as me? Along the way, I have learned how to suffer but it doesn't ever get easier. And I haven't got any new words to describe the pain with, because … Continue reading Something About Self-Pity
Words flow like liquid thoughts, Like vomit they're being sprayed onto a digital book of self-pity, They silently make their way down the pages of another new day. Lost so easily, They're never at the right place at the right time, And they never seem to be understood. A red sea of letters that lays … Continue reading Words as Weapons
So maybe I'm the asshole after all. But does it even matter at this point? What the hell else am I supposed to do than get out of the way? I remeber when I was screaming hurry up and wait for me! Now I am the one who's waiting. I burned these cigarettes an effigy, … Continue reading Apparently I Missed the Exit
3 AM, t-shirt and shorts, a small fire by the lake. Life couldn't be any better in times like these. Surrounded by friends, your head resting on my shoulder. With a cold beer in my hand I try to imitate the rhythm of your breathing. I would trade everything for a warm summer night.
Oh, how good she looks. Her hair all wet, Her bathing suit fitting just right. Her blue eyes full of joy and hunger for more. The boat is rocking gently as we pass over the river's tiny waves. I look at her through tinted sunglasses, Her innocent smile makes my heart laugh. Wherever the bottom … Continue reading 32
Sleepless again. The music in my ears can't calm the storm in my head. Maybe I should go for a walk. Just start walking in a direction and not think about where it's going to lead me. Who knows, I might meet somebody along the way. Or maybe I'll stay in my bed. Things like … Continue reading Dreams
You've been asking me to write a story, so here I go. "We're not in the right movie," she whispered in the dark. I averted my eyes from the TV screen and tried to make out her face in the flashing lights. "What do you mean?" I asked. "I mean that if this were a … Continue reading Maybe In Another Movie
Have you never wanted to punch a wall? Have you never wanted to put your hand into the fire? Have you never thought of being someone else? I wish for a thunderstorm in my heart that puts out the flames. I wish for a hand that strokes the back of my head when I'm in … Continue reading Concrete
Boring. Everything's so dreadfully boring. Sure, the pictures still move, and the world still looks amazing in the sunset, but I've seen it all before. I long for a change. A change of everything. I ache for something different. Because the words are always the same, the dots and commas are at the same place … Continue reading Cheap
Sometimes the world just isn't enough. Sometimes even the longest moments are too short. Sometimes it takes a whole lot of love for someone to be happy, other times just a handful of peanuts. And once the metaphors have run out and even genuine words just won't do the trick anymore we sit in silence, … Continue reading Wake Up
No matter where you are, the moon is never bigger than your thumb. Except when you're on the moon itself. Reluctant laughter. Another shooting star that goes unnoticed. One hundred tiny flames bring more light and warmth than a bonfire ever could. But four hours from now we'll be cold again. We're slow dancing in … Continue reading Slow Dancing
We make our own paradise. It may still be pouring now but we'll create sunshine. In black and white, high upon a stage, the angel sang. The wind carried her beautiful voice across the whole trampled meadow. I keep my demons alive. They can't die as long as I live. Many have tried to kill … Continue reading And the Angel Sang
It hasn't hurt this much in a long time. I know the pain but I still haven't figured out how to deal with it. What do you do when your heart is on fire? Maybe I should've just let it be. Maybe I should've listened to the voices of reason. The words were few, their … Continue reading I Write When I‘m Sad
"Would it destroy everything?" I ask you. You're still looking at the sky that's slowly getting brighter. You turn around. My question confuses you. I want to add more, so that you can understand what I'm trying to say but I've used up all my courage for those four words. Suddenly, your eyes change. You … Continue reading I Can‘t Cry
Let's name the monsters that you've killed. As the good guys turn bad we shovel holes to bury the past. An empty bottle of wine hits the river's surface, carrying messages for the soulmates we may never find. For some reason, the things that are closest always seem to be the farthest away. Because you … Continue reading Drunk
The stars should be orange. There's a mole in the sky, taking careful steps northward. A glass of wine loses its balance, painting the lawn red. And nothing ever happens because we're too tired to try and too scared to say what we feel. We just lie there, in a green sea of life, while … Continue reading Nothing Ever Happens
I never wanted to see you like this. An empty bottle of wine on the floor, the second one less than half full on a chair next to you like a friend listening to your sorrows. A knife in your hand, cutting away at your left forearm. Everything is red, dried out blood and puffy … Continue reading Pain
I traded my tomorrows to remain in yesterday. Whisky tears are falling, splashing around me. I can fill up my own glass with the liquified memories I've collected. The single malt burns my lips as I stare at the golden water. Maybe it's time to stop, but the distorted world I see through the glass … Continue reading Whisky
You're right in front if me but you can't see me. To you, I'm like a mirror in which you see your own ugly reflection. Maybe that's the reason why what I want is impossible to have. We're so similar in every kind of way. We want the same things, we criticize the same standards … Continue reading Mirror
Exaggerated romance. Dancing in the rain. The first snowflakes on a cold November morning. A sunset in July. The burning city lights in the distance. Counting shooting stars in August while lying on the street. Getting drunk together next to a fire on a warm summer night. Running through a thunderstorm to confess feelings of … Continue reading Romance
Sometimes I lie awake, staring into the darkness with absolutely nothing on my mind and then all of a sudden you're there. Like a ghost you appear out of nowhere and start haunting the halls of my head again. So many years have passed and you're still somewhere in there, buried underneath all the other … Continue reading Queen
A million fireflies are dancing on my shoulders as we watch the sun set at the end of the world. Take me back to the night we met, when we didn't know each other because we didn't have to. Take me back to the time when we were just two strangers, looking for a place … Continue reading Rain
What is this feeling? I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's strong. I believe in something that I know can never be. So naive of me to think that I could turn it all around. You're so far away and yet you feel like home. I hate your embrace because I know … Continue reading Hope
The ember flickers carelessly as he watches himself drown. The raging waves don't seize to tear away at his weakened body. Colors are dancing around him. He can't open his mouth. Is this really the end? With feeble breaths he struggles to stay conscious but the water is too strong. One last muted scream, then … Continue reading End
Is it too much to ask for someone who understands me when I don't understand myself? Is it really so hard to find someone who will stand by my side when I want to escape from my own skin? The winds blow a bit colder, the clouds turn a bit darker again. Someone's built a … Continue reading Ash
The words I speak appear on my skin. Like black snakes they crawl across my body. There's so many of them that they can't move freely anymore. My body's not a canvas, it's a toilet wall littered with curses and profane jokes. I'm like an island lost at sea, incapable of swimming to a shore … Continue reading Inked
Forgive me for the things I've done, I can't turn back time. Forgive me for the words I've said, I can't take them back. Forgive me for who I am, I can't change that.
