Back on the island!

I’m back on my magical, hippie island in Thailand and here are the first impressions. Bit of a rainy day but still so so so beautiful! (Here’s more pictures)

Unity

Behind every balcony there’s a different lifeDifferent stories how each inhabitant survivesAnd no matter how different or separate they may seemIn the end it’s always the same house they’re all living in ©mywritingtherapy

Adventures calling

On a plane high up in the skyBelow snowcapped mountains are passing byUp here the engines are haulingBut I only hear how foreign adventures are calling @mywritingtherapy

Fragments

Life often doesn’t draw a precise pictureWe see tiny fragments through the cracksBut trust, with time the structureWill fill in all the blanks ©mywritingtherapy

Touch

I will touch you cautiouslyI will touch you slowI will take my time Until we know where this will go A touch may give you pleasureBut it can also cause you painReal Pleasure only comesIf our feelings are the same I do not want to scar your skinI want both our wounds to healBut yet I […]

Promise

I do not knowIf we will be togetherThrough any stormThrough any weather But I will try to fall in love with youEvery single day anew ©mywritingtherapy

Stability

Trees root downOn solid groundWhile their leaves fly highTo touch the sky Dear one, in order to be freeyou need to seek stability ©mywritingtherapy

Fluid Wisdom

Don’t tell me that water is not aliveThe lakes, the rivers and the oceansFor they have told me more truthThan any human ever did

Shimmering

I feel it deep withina light a glow a shimmering something rooted in my veins that guides me on my ways It’s an inner voice so gentleand it helps me to dismantleall my thoughts my fears my doubts all the bad things that arouse Sometimes quiet hard to hearAt times shouting through my ear At times it bursts out […]

Art

I long to talk about all the things I feelBut it’s too much for manyIf things start to get too realWhen you unpack the garbage in front of their eyesStart to uncover all of the liesAnd you show them what’s really inside your heartThat’s why I put my feelings into my artMy writing, my music, […]

Wilder Mind

With this wilder mindI am the wandering kindMy restless feet take me around I am not made to settle down Always moving never stillDaily routines makes me illA constant hunger for the newInfected with the travel flu Freedom hunter on the moveSearching for a deeper truthForever trying to find outWhat this life is all about Guided […]

Depression pt.2

Lately I’ve been on a rideKind of how a rollercoaster feels likeI got up so high I thought I could fly awayThen dropped so low I though I might not see the end of day And I sat in betweenWatching things I thought can’t be seenLike my life was a movie out of controlI was […]

Depression

Du

Ich bring mein Gesicht so nah an deins heranBis ich die Welt um uns nicht mehr sehen kannDie Konturen verblassen und verlieren ihre SchärfeUnd das Leben lockert seine HärteIch vergess auf einmal alles um mich herumSelbst die lauten Stimmen in meinem Kopf werden plötzlich stummHör nur noch ein leises Pochen aus deiner BrustMein Finger klopft […]

Wie kann Liebe wachsen

Wie kann Liebe wachsenUnd wo bekomme ich die SaatIn meinem Supermarkt um die EckeIm FachhandelOder bestell ich sie besser onlineWie bringe ich sie zum KeimenWelchen Nährboden verwende ich am BestenWie viel Licht braucht sieWie viel AufmerksamkeitWie viel muss ich selber tunUnd wie viel wächst sie ganz von alleineWie weiß ich, wann sie einen neuen Topf […]

Why is it that there are so manyWho love me for meBut for you I’m never enoughAlthough I’ve tried so desperately Why do you persist on trying to changeThe way that I’m livingYou better take me as I am todayBecause tomorrow’s not given It’s so hard to keep up these rolesOf our happy faced masqueradeWhen […]

Get lost

If you don’t know where to goGo get lost

Just one!

I often ask myself whether my writing makes any senseIf the world even cares when I am taking a stanceI guess not, on the first glanceThere are so many writers with a whole lot more fansWho are much better in keeping up the suspenseAnd an advanced skillset at their defenseBut if there is just one […]

Mirror conversation

You don’t need to be perfectYou put that pressure on yourselfYou say to you all those thingsYou would never dare say to anyone else When you look at the mirrorAll you see is faults and flawsConstantly comparing what isTo what once was Wrinkles and linesRed dots and scarsThinning, grey hairToo much weight and stretch marks […]

Perfectly flawed

Stop being hard on yourselfFor things you can’t controlFor being imperfectly humanThat flaw lies within us all And only if we rise aboveAnd gift the others lenienceCan we count on their respectWhen we fail to handle our things We all strife for perfectionAnd ask for nothing lessWhen we should foster patienceAnd practice steady humbleness For […]

Autumn wind

The time when temperatures decreasethe time when leaves depart their treesthe time when summer turns to fallthat’s when I start to hear the call The autumn wind whispers againpredicting tales of winter’s painstill holds hints of summer’s sunand it hollows I should run It swept me off my feet beforeso I am not scared anymorewhat […]

Readership

If our live’s stories were booksThen I would say that most of the people you are going to meet will only read the blurbA few might take a peek at the index and headlines to get an overviewEven less will go online and do a little research thereCheck reviews and short summariesAnd probably only a […]

Über den Hügeln brennt bereits das AbendrotVerkündet schleichend: Der Sommer, der ist tot!Mit einem Schaudern wird es mir bewusstVerschränk die Arme schützend vor der BrustDurch die Flammen zieht auch schon der kühle AbendwindReißt mich hoch und treibt mich heim geschwind ©mywritingtherapy

Waiting

I would like to write a song about you
How much better you make my life
But for now you’re just a dream
I am still waiting for you to arrive

X-Small

When I lost controlI built myself a cageA prison within my own bodyConfined by the surface of my skinA tiny cellOver which I ruledWith strict controlI guarded the boarders constantlySo that they would not expandI would wrap my fingers around my wristA circle to measure if everything was still in placeProof that I had not […]

Stille

Wintertraum

Reverberation
