A running nose for a lifetime

when the nose
is blocked
and only yellow
slimy
stuff
runs out,
into your lungs
and you get
a headache
from the clocked sinuses
and your chest
aches
from coughing.
then
it’s time to call
your job
and make yourself
even more
ill
than you
actually are
to be highly confidential
and trustworthy
that they
believe you.
but they will
talk behind your back
in any way
until this slimy
yellow stuff
runs out of their mouths
because they follow
a line
that drives them
to work.
every day
and every night.
to fulfill their duty
even when they are
almost
collapsing
to find out
at the end
that this was
not worth
at all
and they get
down,
depressed,
and lonely
to realise
that life
is rather more
than going to work
day by day.
what a bullshit
when this idea
comes too late

Sometimes

sometimes you know
which direction you go
sometimes you don’t even know
where you actually are
and what you actually feel
just stumbling around
in a fog of illusions
bumping into other people
standing in the same fog
but holding a torch
to see more clearly
their way
out of this diffusing day
full of confusing thoughts
and contradicting feelings

to love someone
requires a heart
and not an agreement
with your mind
when your heart
and your mind
walk into different directions
you only create confusion
for yourself and also
for the one who loves you
but it means to loose this person
who you like
but not deeply love
once and for all
because love with mind
and heart bloomed
on the other side
but not on yours

Canova’s kissing couple

The sun was shining
when we kissed
and it was raining
when we had to depart.
People smiled at us
when we deeply hugged us
in this museum
full of Italian masters.
We were there
like a sculpture
of a kissing couple
that Canova never did.
They let us be
when the museum was closed and
we loved us the whole night long
and Hayez, Caravaggio, Tintoretto and Rubens
painted our naked bodies.

My voice was heard

I am inside society,
but you did not
recognise me.
I spoke out loud
and my voice was heard,
but my words not understood.
I realised, that you see
with your open eyes
but with a closed heart.
When my tears were rolling,
you thought it was raining.
When it was silent
around us,
you heard my heart beating
and you thought it was
a knock on your door
and ran away.

A rainbow from my heart

I flushed my past life
down the toilet
for walking the wrong pathes
and making grave mistakes
with ideas, thoughts, relations
and a wrong job,
that all caused depressions.

Instead,
I planted the seeds
of a rainbow
to enrich my life
with bright colours
and I enlightened the sun
to get up in my heart
and to start a new day at dawn.
