The emptiness.

What if words told you nothing?
If words were just where nothing grows.
What if our planet was facing it’s last breath?
If the gasping sounds were where life had to drop.

We have nothing with us when we come here.
We have nothing with us when we leave this Earth.
The day we all say goodbye to the beloved.
The day we all leave and meet in emptiness.

It’s our shattered hearts.

We have nothing when we walk separately.
We have nothing to look forward to when we leave what we love.
Like suddenly becoming deaf and blind.
Like that in total losing, we knew we had everything.

What if there was no lie?
What would the words sound like?
If only I could never have heard you from where I am.
If we’re already done before we go.

Completely without thoughts, yes words and the dreams that go from us.
Quite quietly we sink into the silence and leave the light.
What if words were all that was needed?
What if the emptiness is filled with our thoughts?

It’s all of our brooken dreams.

We have nothing when we walk separately.
We have nothing to look forward to when we leave what we love.
Like suddenly becoming deaf and blind.
Like that in total losing, we knew we had everything.

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

    When we must leave what we love , there are always new vistas that open up .
    I like the thought behind the following lines :

    “What if words were all that was needed?
    What if the emptiness is filled with our thoughts?”

    They signal hope amidst despair for
    “In the beginning was the Word. “

      what if there was no lie
      what would words sound like… what a profound lines. Thoughts do not lie, it’s the words.
