The road ahead

The road in front of us is empty
So why are you acting like we’re waiting in line?

Author’s note:

‘The road ahead’ is about feeling ready to be very intimate with someone and them wanting to take it slow. It’s a slightly aggressive piece reflecting the inner feelings of longing for the other person.

Steer

For the first time in a long time
I’m excited to see where it goes
it ain’t here
Unable to steer

Sometimes love just disappears
even before it develops
I wish you were here
do you feel me, can you hear?

Author’s note:

‘Steer’ is a piece about having a different view in the beginning of a relationship, but wanting to try something different and letting the other part set the pace. Being overeager can quickly kill something that could have developed into a beautiful relationship.

The zone IV

Real truth is invaluable 
and luckily a reason for slight enjoyment
gets me through the zone faster
and helps me my feelings master

Author’s note:

‘The zone IV’ is the 4th and final part in an abstract and reflective piece about feeling more inspired and creative when writing poems, songs, etc. whenever you’re sad. It’s such a paradox and impasse because I appreciate writing, but I feel it’s best when I’m sad. On the other hand I’ve learned to appreciate these moments, so I get through my issues and feel better on the other side.

Waiting game

I don’t know you
but I want your arms around me
before it’s too late
don’t let me wait

I’m eager to see you
ready behind my sniper rifle
your weapon of choice is a shotgun
you’ve got many choices, I might have none

Author’s note:

‘Waiting game’ is a piece about having a different view in the beginning of a relationship. Feelings develop in different speed and this poem is about finding a fitting balance in between it all.

Field of mines

It has disappeared
before it came back
gave value to the bad times
enjoying a walk through a field of armed mines

Wounds need to reopen to heal properly
hiding underneath your skin
they’ll never disappear
wonder with your mind, see and hear

Author’s note:

‘Field of mines’ is a piece about not ignoring the bad times and going through them in order to get better. Building up emotions inside can result in them bottling up and exploding at some point.

The zone III

In reality it’s a paradox
for the best writing comes
from the saddest and truest moments
from when the soul really torments

Author’s note:

‘The zone III’ is the 3rd part of 4 in an abstract and reflective piece about feeling more inspired and creative when writing poems, songs, etc. whenever you’re sad. It’s such a paradox and impasse because I appreciate writing, but I feel it’s best when I’m sad. On the other hand I’ve learned to appreciate these moments, so I get through my issues and feel better on the other side.
