Notastray (Sunrise)

The lights go out and everybody is sleeping,
In the silly hours of the night, it’s just you and me.
So long apart, we quickly grew back together,
Just as long as it once took you to be gone, forever.
The street lights, all one-eyed, burn all night long,
But I can still see the starry sky,
It’s the other way Read on

My Winter Solstice

It’s the longest day of the year in me, my winter solstice,
Won’t make through it in this lifetime.
Or, maybe, the whole year is threesixtysix of these.
Wrong is
My winter solstice.
Long is
The forbidden in-between.
It’s the longest no of all of my nos, my missing sunrise,
Won’t make through it in this rhyme.
Or maybe the list of things I Read on

Formerly a Queen

Once a fire,
Now a firework,
She could tell you
So much about
Being barely alive,
Yet she chooses
To smile all the time.
Once a queen,
Now one of us,
She could give you
A harsh lecture on
Somehow staying alive,
Yet she chooses
To decline your dime.
More deaths than fingers on a hand,
She is the other shoe.
A strange kind of a martyr she is,
More than just Read on

Bald Tires and Broken Kettles

Miss Fire
Will misfire.
Hundred years later
I skip galaxies
On a bald tire.
I can’t have a break,
Or hit the brakes.
I see no rights,
Though I spot the fakes.
It’s been more than a decade and I taught myself to lose what I had with you,
Another ten years until I will have had the courage to face me and face you.

Spinning Beehive

You light the torch and hide in the fire,
A scruffy bumblebee entering hibernation.
Passive-aggressive, yelling into the dire,
I am what I am, an error in classification.
You are so funny
Or am I really teasing
I laugh at your struggle
While I am not berating
The more that I push
The more you do pull
In my confusion
I made you a fool
I did Read on

Fernweh

I should have been a teenager,
Like you are.
Does anybody know you’re not one?
I could’ve been thirteen.
I could’ve been thirteen,
But I am thirty-three.
I’m under this permanent delusion
That having darker hair
A couple more teeth,
Being thirteen kilos heavier
Seventeen centimetres taller
Still means that I have not aged
One single day since I’ve gone away.
You could’ve been thousands.
You could’ve been thousands
But Read on

Toy Bird

Bleeding on roses
For many long years
Once there is blood
Gone are those tears
I was a wind-up bird toy
Made out of toxic alloy
Repeating love, love, love
It looked legit this time
Wore it on my chest
Hoped for the best
And I bled in vain
Feeding my bird brain
It feels so strange
To be fully red again
Can I please change back
And be so Read on

August Morning

August Morning, straight from The Year 13.
I wake up in the morning and pick up my phone
Not sure if happy or completely gone
This is the solution of all problems
I need to solve things that way, too.
That’s what the world wants from everybody.
I get an apple cider in the park
I never bought a drink on my Read on
