I see your tears.

Your eyes sparkle in your clear salty tears.
I hear your voice crack.
You fight me like the fight for life.
We cannot win it individually.
If we go apart now.
We lose everything we have created.
I see your tears.
Seeing them sparkle through my salty tears.

You love me and that other guy.
I love you and that other woman.
Have we both gone completely mad and out of our minds.
Why can we not settle for each other?

I can only see your plans.
You do not want me with you.
I’m being pushed out of your life.
You can do it yourself without any help.
I leave only faint traces.
You will never be able to forget them.
In time, you will remember us.
Over time, we are lost and will be missed.

You love me and that other guy.
I love you and that other woman.
Have we both gone completely mad and out of our minds.
Why can we not settle for each other?

The hour of truth must soon stand the test.
If we separate and go our separate ways.
It feels like life is leaving us now.
You are no longer fighting.
You have now knocked a wedge in between the two of us.
Do we still want the same as before?
Can you tell me in sheer honesty?
That all we were was not true love.

You love me and that other guy.
I love you and that other woman.
Have we both gone completely mad and out of our minds.
Why can we not settle for each other?

I see your tears, the clear drops on your cheek.
You can see mine through your own salty tears.
Can we find our way back to what the two of us were?
Do you want life without me by your side?
I’m in more doubt than ever.
Can we manage if we find each other?
Are we now just leaving our lives…together?
You push me away and we will never see each other again.

You loved me but now it’s that other guy.
I still love you and that other woman.
We would be crazy to share this kind of life.
Have we both gone completely mad and out of our minds.
Why can we not settle for down and forever be content?

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
