I’m like time
in every single night
and every single day,
wore only so much of me,
just to see another day.
In your eyes
as the sun created
there the light threw
and shadows get killed.
It gave it all meaning,
even though
twisted as it sometimes appeared.
You’re like a maze
corners and turns,
I can not yet see.
Specks gathering to spot, to blaze
that creates a star to my eyes.
So it finally makes sense,
I’m not like you at all
distorted is my gaze.
You have much more time,
I almost feel your thug on me.
The oxygen and the pain in my blood,
I remember the moisture in your mouth,
the taste of your tongue,
the best of all my dreams.

The power of your thoughts
removing distances between continents
and saturates the hungry cells of life
in you and in my body.
I can be like the deepest mystery
in your mind and your soul
in my darkness you always light up
an almost unseen turns on and off.
I’m lonely in my own way,
trying to step into your path
and I struggle with all my powers
to end up in your heart.

I’m nothing special,
nothing like you,
with nice and deep brown eyes,
hair shinning like the blackest gold in the sunrise,
I’m the fleeting shadow,
of the wonder as you show yourself.
I have love,
it’s a roar in my veins
and the sigh of meekness.
In the quiet dune of your years,
I have worked up this white glowing energy
turned on by you,
on an off like forever locked in loop.
In your pictures I can almost feel your touch
Yes, I get small shocks when I touch you
far into my soul,
increased by my own failed infatuation
and like this the torment of beauty,
made me like this.

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
