Porcelain

You shine like the Moon, the light inside all the darkness…
I am but a shadow of your reflection, the dark spot in all the light…
Your skin so pure and untouched, in a clarity brighter than crystal glass…
If ever an appearance could hurt, your beauty outshine it all so bright…

As the taste of love filled up a cup of porcelain…
nothing of your being is touched and will ever be plain…

Fine lines and features so perfectly shaped, eyes so deep and dark…
From where I am it is slightly obscured, and your shine is the blazing true…
I wish you would come closer, close enough to leave your mark…
In every mirror you paint your beauty, a trace of white in all the blue…

You look so frail and vulnerable but I see the strength in you…
Captivated and seduced I now feel so frail and so damn plain…
You have the taste of infatuation and I can sense your presence too…
The meeting with you has changed my heart to brittle porcelain…

As the taste of love filled up a cup of porcelain…
nothing of your being is touched and will ever be plain…

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
