Slowly… I died today
something… so hard to say
just as a fool in May
all my thoughts went away

The few words crushed my poor heart
the new beginning the fresh start
torne my life… apart
the simplest things… so hard.

Tears from heaven
You put it all out there 59 minutes past eleven
Tears from heaven
and I am locked in day seven.

Didn’t you hear… my call?
You showed me… everything
you watch me stumble and fall
I know I have lost that one thing
I haven’t the strength to crawl
life in circle, life caught in a ring
and… nothing left at all
empty… and nothing more to bring.

Tears from heaven
You put it all out there 59 minutes past eleven
Tears from heaven
and I am still locked in day seven.

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
