Behind Every Plague

let your hair down,
beg the question.

measure sadness
by the glass.

there are silver linings
behind every plague and

drained cliché

the rest is breathing,
eyes wide open in the dark
and history.

Inspiration

I read every piece of
inspiration about love
sipping wine like
verbal courage from
your hands but still

the honest truth of you
remains in every sigh
and daydream as the
hours feel like minutes:

I am less afraid of
plunging into unknown
depths and melting with
my hands on your horizon.

Sunset Poetry (with Helle Gade)

I wrote a poem with my good friend and poet, Helle Gade. It was inspired by the amazing photography of Kim Stapf.

Kim

Theirs is sky above the trees
And we are lost below
The crimson failure
With a tangerine and blue indifference
~
Molten lava runs through our veins
While we gaze upon the liquid gold
That runs across the celestial sphere
As we try and find our way through life
~
Into a new horizon
Blanketed with clouds
And silhouettes of us
Entwined as scoria
~
With scarlet dreams
We enter the night
A new beginning
Of hushed whispers

Beyond the Cage

you might get lost
following your heart.

the sun plays tricks
and maps were never drawn
to scale with shadows
or the wind.

voices of the
forest reminiscent
of last kiss by
pearl jam.
