You and the other.

We took it quite a long way this time,
but now it’s time to give it all up.
Time to give up.
The search somehow must stop.
Hovered around and searched for ourself, myself and all we were,
where we could say stop
and end the final battle.
Nothing could really bring us down,
but all that’s left now,
is the dream hidden inside me.
It was a little to easy for you,
with the idea of,
that nothing should or could separate you and I.
I never wanted to see you with another,
and it’s still hard for me,
to close, cope and keep it into myself.
So how do I look at you?
I know it’s over now,
you took the best with you to your own fate.
I know it’s all over now,
still it hurts to see you with the other.

I guess I went a little too far from time to time,
could not really even say stop,
never really give up.
I had you right here,
what no one else saw.
So even though we are separated by time,
and you are thinking of another,
I let it all fall to stop.
Then I bite my tongue and bleed a little,
the dream slipped with another and now I’m worn.
Your voice far from me ignites something in me,
I know it’s over but I’ll never forget you.
I rose to nothing when I left to you a path just for you,
an endless sky for you to move in,
did not know that the end of my road came crusing in on me.
Although we were far apart in the end,
it’s one thing we both may have known,
I’m back here somewhere, yeah nowhere,
do not know where you went and where you slipped.
I have no more words hidden inside me for you,
Only now I admit that my love was very true.

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
