You and I.

I remember how it felt to take your hand,
how you always told me about your thoughts.
I remember how your kisses always melted on my lips,
how you moved when we’re together.
The many years together feel like seconds now,
the many thoughts that gather in a lonely living room.
Important is not what we have become over the years,
it is important that we can keep our eyes in focus.

All the years have not separated us.
All the wounds healed sleepless inside of you.
I was probably addicted to some kind of grief.
I know because you never completely let go.

I remember what it was like to walk by your side,
how your words always sounded like mine.
I remember a love so burning hot,
how every single cell inside of me fell for you.
The same words that never let me get lost,
the many hours you always led me the right way.
Important is not the time now passed,
What matters is what your thoughts contain now.

All the words we spoke worn the strength within us.
All those who saw us go our separate ways.
We were probably trapped in what we thought was our freedom.
We were probably the best thing that ever happened to the two of us.

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

    We were probably trapped in what we thought was our freedom.
    We were probably the best thing that ever happened to the two of us.

    The eternal contradictions and essential sadness at the heart of human love are poetically strung in this love song.
