All that was…

Of all the things I’ve left in life…
nothing is left of what was given.
The same things in this silent living room…
where the loneliness of the night lurks.
I lay on my bed under a duvet…
sleeping while all my dreams come true.
Turn me on the side…
just trying to forget about time.
The remnants of all that was…
gathering in the tears I have.

The same places are now passing by…
passing and never touching.
thinking a thought…
but nothing to say.
All that was…
is all I do not have.

Of all the life that was…
I soon have nothing left.
The same days in this lonely living room…
blocked behind thick walls.
I count the days that passes…
know that they accumulate into years.
Turn my mind on a thought still here…
sincerely wish everything could be unaware.
The remnants of all that was…
gathering in the hope I have.
The same thought hurry past my ignorance…
drinking and never thinking.

Give in to emptiness…
and I have nothing to say.
All that was…
is all I do not have.

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen
