Whenever I’m there, she will not and won’t even see me.

Whenever I shout, she will not and won’t even hear me.

Whenever I leave, and try to tell her goodbye,

she wakes up, and sadly surprice ask me why?

I don’t think I can break it.

I don’t think I can shake it.

Whenever I cried, I done in front of her but now I do so alone.

Forever in me is this hurt of my own and there is no escape from that zone.

So now that I’m gone without any kind of goodbyes,

I won’t be missed, and no tears in her’s or my eyes.

I don’t think I can break it.

I don’t think I can shake it.

I faded away, and had to leave her, I’m not there anymore.

All there is left, is this ode to her to ask what I was  for?

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

    I can almost hear the accompanying guitar solo to , ” Whenever “. It is melancholic without being self-indulgent ,reflective without being introverted .It reminded me a great deal of the Jimmy Webb song that was such a huge hit record for Richard Harris originally,,” MacArthur Park “.
