You’re there.

You’re there.

I know you’re out there, have seen you through my window.
I do not know why I run?
Maybe I’m just the one who sweeps?
Once I broke your heart.
Most of all you are probably the one I miss most of all now.

The most beautiful words are not mine, I’m just trying to look like those words.
Do you also listen to the gentle narrative of the wind?
Do you also let the light dazzle and just burn?
Once you were right here.
Most of all, I’m probably the one who’s never been there.

I was there with my collar turned up.
My head tucked behind protective hands.
Never more than half as strong as you.
You are where all dreams are lived.
You’re where I always count on you.

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

    A poignant lyric , this poet is full of revelations by the narrator into the narrator’s insights into the self and its alter ego , symbolised by the I and the You in the poem , and into their mutual relationship as well.
