It’s been a little quiet …

It’s kind of the same every day …

keep the insecurity away and just get up …

That’s how little my thoughts are layered …

keep life away and pay it with my body …

It’s a bit like this, every single night …

keep hope up with duvets that never get warm …

It’s so little I finally find the treasure of sleep …

hold out just a few more days in my own arms …

Quiet in the dark night alone with dreams …

lying in bed with thoughts trapped in fear …

Quiet thoughts so endlessly tender …

quietly I let everything fall into the gap …

It’s kind of the way life goes …

held apart and let most things go the wrong way …

It’s kind of like I’m nowhere to be reached …

hold on to dreams no one can get…

neither you nor me all just an immaculate phantom  …

It’s kind of weird that someone just wants it dark …

hold back and never let a stranger in…

as everything can be change to hope …

It’s kind of weird that we choose to live in a lonely drought …

keep to ourselves and isolate ourselves…

far away where no one walks and talks …

Quietly we disappear away in a noise of empty shattered memories ….

quiet every day because there is no faith …

nor does there exist any hate…

Quietly I take off and put on my same clothes …

quietly stands one evening my worn out shoes …

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

    This poem evokes for me growing older and quieter. Sometimes it is best to say nothing even though everything seems wrong. My opinion and thoughts discounted by smug and self-satisfied, small minded people. What can you do?
