I can’t cope

“You try to be faithful10-ways-to-cope
And sometimes you’re cruel.
You are mine. Then, you leave.
Without you, I can’t cope.

And when you take the lead,
I become your footstep.
Your absence leaves a void.
Without you, I can’t cope.

You have disturbed my sleep,
You have wrecked my image.
You have set me apart.
Without you, I can’t cope.


My own accord

“I didn’t come here of my own accord, and I can’t leave that way.birth-injury
Whoever brought me here will have to take me home.”

In your light

In your lightimg1507AI learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you,

but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.



“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.נר נשמה
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?”


I love my friends neither withbody-and-soul
my heart nor with my mind.
Just in case heart might stop, Mind can forget.
I love them with my soul.
Soul never stops or forget…

Whatever will be

Caught by our own thoughts,1417_225620897588088_1482642152_n
we worry about everything.
But once we get drunk on that Love
Whatever will be, will be.


When it’s cold and raining,images (11)
You are more beautiful.
And the snow brings me even closer to your lips.
The inner secret, that which was never born,
you are that freshness, and I am with you now.
I can’t explain the goings, or the comings.
You enter suddenly, and I am
nowhere again. Inside the majesty.
