In a man’s imagination …

In a man’s imagination …

You demand all of him …
I am sure you expect it …
Trying to see his thoughts …
but nothing escapes …
So you stop and bump a little …
Does not see all the other things that have happened …

You think you know all his thoughts …
know all about his stupid secrets …
But in a man’s imagination …
There are no performances …
Go the steps he took for you without prejudice …
just look the same way he went for you …

The man’s imagination is full of all things …
not that everything runs around or ends in a ring …
All too often, he is alone and forgotten as a human being …
a little too often a victim of intolerable demands …
Could you see the world with his eyes …
would you like to see your own lies …

When darkness comes, he lights a bit …
When things get lesser, he increases the volume …
He may feel empty and like he do not care …
but can you let yourself go through without him …
He can dream a thousand things …
but only whisper your name in its judgment about the love he has for you …

The day you see how much energy is used …
the day you fall and get picked up …
The day you sit and listen …
the day you seriously look into his eyes …
Then you know he’s going all the way …
even the last steps into death just for you …

About jachso

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
