• Shimmering

    I feel it deep within
    a light a glow a shimmering 
    something rooted in my veins 
    that guides me on my ways

    It’s an inner voice so gentle
    and it helps me to dismantle
    all my thoughts my fears my doubts 
    all the bad things that arouse

    Sometimes quiet hard to hear
    At times shouting through my ear 
    At times it bursts out of my chest 
    A love so strong I can’t hold back

    I feel it deep within
    a light a glow a shimmering 
    something rooted in my veins 
    that guides me on my ways

    It brings out all the good
    all my hopes my dreams my goals 
    it’s my inner peace my home
    let’s me know I’m not alone

    Sometimes quiet hard to hear
    At times shouting through my ear 
    At times it bursts out of my chest 
    A love so strong I can’t hold back

    Sometimes quiet hard to hear
    At times shouting through my ear 
    At times it bursts out of my chest
    A love so strong I can’t hold back

  • Running meditation

    I run and I run
    Let all the thoughts come
    I run and I run
    Till all thoughts are gone

  • Fluid wisdom

    Don’t tell me that water is not alive
    The lakes, the rivers and the oceans
    For they have told me more truth
    Than any human ever did

  • INTERTWINED

    As I watch you sleeping
    I try to find out what I feel
    Could this be something
    Could this be something real

    Will we last forever and ever
    Are you the one?
    And if it gets windy
    Can we make it through the storm

    Can we be good to each other
    Even at times when it seems that we can’t
    Can we accept the other
    Including all the parts we don’t understand

    Can you hold me tight
    On days when I’m falling
    And can you set me free
    On days when the world is calling (for me)

    Are we able to let us
    Go our own and individual way
    Watch and cheer from the sideline
    And jump in if one of us goes astray

    Are we willing to forgive
    All the mistakes we will make
    Can we look past our faults
    And always see the person behind the mistake

    Will we remain honest friends 
    Throughout the years
    And communicate clearly
    All of our desires, insecurities and fears

    Will we continue to laugh
    About nonsense, this mad world and ourselves
    Can we keep it lightly
    Even if life puts heavy weights on our shelves 

    Will our bodies still desire each other
    Even after the thousandth touch
    Still long for the ecstasy
    Of which we can’t get enough

    Will you still love me 
    When I’m old and grey
    when my eyes and breasts are wrinkled
    And my booty shows signs of decay

    Will we hold hands
    On that day when death invites one of us to leave
    Will the memories we have built together
    Save us from drowning in grief

    Will this life be better
    If we stay together?

    All of these questions
    Are floating around
    Do we need all the answers
    To figure this out?

    Because for now we are here
    Wrapped up side by side
    and as I watch you breathing
    There’s no place I’d rather hide

    We’ll just take it from here
    One step at a time
    No rush and no hurry
    Let’s just follow the signs

    I’ll give you my all
    For as long as I can
    For as long as you
    Decide to be my man

    And then you woke up
    And your gaze met mine
    I put the questions aside
    And our bodies simply intertwined

  • Phönix

    Wie bist du nur hier reingekommen
    Ich dacht ich hätte alles abgesperrt
    Doch da stehst du nun
    Mittendrin in meinem Herz

    Mit dem Willkommen
    Tu ich mir etwas schwer
    Das letzte Mal, dass jemand hier war
    Ist schon eine Weile her

    Die Meisten die bis hierher kamen
    Haben mein Haus in Brand gesteckt
    Seitdem sitz ich in den grauen Resten
    Still und ganz verschreckt

    Auch du wirkst leicht verstört
    Von dem was du hier siehst
    Ich kann sehen wie du zitterst
    Weil der kalte Wind dir um die Ohren zieht

    Trotzdem kommst du langsam auf mich zu
    Und lachst mich schüchtern an
    Du nimmst mich bei der Hand
    Und auf einmal wird es warm

    Ist es wirklich wahr
    Dass der Phönix aus der Asche steigt
    Und sich mit einem Flügelschlag
    Von der Erinnerung befreit

    Ich glaube es wird Zeit
    Hier etwas aufzuräumen
    Um wieder Platz zu machen
    Zum Lieben und zum Träumen

  • Womenhood

    I bow to all the women
    Who walk this path with me
    Who reign their lives
    So strong and fierce and gracefully

    I bow to all my sisters
    Who suffered all this pain
    In a world so full of madness
    They stay calm, compassionate and sane

    I bow to all the girls
    Who manage to grow up
    And no man or rule or boundary
    Could ever make them stop

    I bow to all the mothers
    Who nurture humankind
    Without their care and love
    We’d all die of hunger or go blind

    I bow to all the ones before
    Who paved this weary way
    Who fought for all the rights
    That we take for granted every day

    I bow to all the women
    Who walk this path with me
    The world could not exist
    Without divine collective femininity
