I missed it.

Oh I miss these eyes

below the mountains…

Watch the flower flaming bright,

draw us into a everlasting darkness…

Oh I see the fire….

Will you ever remember me as one who’s flame burned only for you?

If I see the fire inside the Mountain, cover my eyes to protect me from the light…

if I shade my eyes to avoid the pain in loosing all of you once again.

But will you ever see my true face and bow to say I accept…

So see me burn like the darkest ocean in the sunset.

I burn my self into the night…

On and on like the light coming from the lighthouse,

and leaving it in the same moment… forever locked.

I know you never forget love and beauty…

but my insatiable flame scorched the ground you walked upon,

and I stay as a nasty stain on your white veil…

I now know it is not in the way you feel,

it is so embedded in all your doings.

I excuse you from the pain and apology…

memories is for those who feel and follow.

Only for the few to feel as we should…

to be there were we matter the most.

I woke up crying once again,

and I slip into the eternally sleep we agreed.

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
