This is Where I Write – POEM

In the corner of a hidden smile

At the end of a falling tear

The beginning of a question mark 

Underneath the clothes I wear

*

Half awake and always dreaming

Never lost, but still unfound

In between colours, black and white

Wings spread wide and roots in the ground

*

For all to see, for none to know

Visible in the dark, hidden by light

Everywhere and nowhere all at once 

Here is where I roam, this is where I write

Song of the Enormous Heart – POEM

Inside a home of glass she stood

And tried as hard as she possibly could

To fill it up with color and song

Although every morning most was gone

Slipped through cracks barely able to see

Open wounds of what could not be

Desperately she tried to mend

With every song her soul could send

A cry for help to anyone who’d hear

As her fingers felt the growing cracks in fear

Whispers started slipping through

Speaking silently, but speaking true

Truth she almost couldn’t bear

But painfully cradled with care

Kept them safe as the cracks got longer

And her song grew ever stronger

She created every color her love could make

Exhausted to the point she’d almost break

But one day her home shattered to the ground

And her soul aimlessly floated around

All her creations wildly spread

And loudly whispers found her weary head

All her colors turned into her gown

And the pieces of glass was her crown

Her enormous heart beating strong

The melody of her most special song

One that no matter how broken or scarred 

Refused to see the world as hard

She loved with all her heart could take

Knowing her sanity was at stake

Until one day her heart devoured her whole

And all was left was a glimmer of soul

And in the dark was just a crack of light

A glimmer of memory, of her internal fight

And on the wind they could hear her voice

Singing of how she had no choice

Of how she loved with all she could

And wouldn’t change any of it, even if she could.

Dinner at Night – POEM

Glasses with regrets

And plates with dreams

They enter in shadows

Darkness and silent screams

*

I ask them to sit

To enjoy every spoon

In this room lightened

By the hungry moon

*

They tell me their stories

As I listen and try

To understand their meaning

Without starting to cry

*

They leave me at sunrise

In an indefinable mood

I had dinner with my demons

And they ate all the food

*

Let it Touch You – POEM

By the caress of passing minutes

The fingers of lost dreams

Lips of promises 

Let it touch you

And see what happens

*

By the shiver of maybes and ifs

The embrace of your past

Breath of creativity

Let it touch you

And listen closely

*

By the warmth of the future

The whisper of hope

Dance of life

Let it touch you

And allow yourself to touch

From Lost to Found – POEM

Sometimes there’s only grass

No path to follow

Direction unknown

And every answered question

Leaves you more lost than before

*

Time passes you by slowly

In the rustling of leaves

And dreams move on too fast

On cotton balls in the sky

While you are walking in circles

*

The thunderstorm comes rolling in

And you run for cover, without thought

And suddenly, so unexpected

Lost turns to found

In the flash of lightning

Hidden – POEM

I’ve hidden you in a box

Down in the darkness

Where only I can find you

The path to the box is hidden too

By unspoken dreams

And lost words

Don’t go looking for you

You won’t like what you find

You’ll get lost in the darkness

I hid you away for a reason

You have been warned

The Window by Christina de Vries

His eyes. Dreaming. Lost.

The first thing I noticed.

He was standing there. 

Looking out of his window. 

Staring into forever. 

He didn’t notice me. 

Or so I thought. 

*

A flower. Blooming. Beautiful.

The next day it was there. 

Bright yellow. Alone.

A yellow face of petals.

Waving to the world from his window.

And I couldn’t stop smiling.

*

Red. Intense. Inviting.

Third day I put it there.

My own flower inspired by his.

Response to an unspoken wish.

A never said promise.

A dream placed perfectly

In his window. And in mine. 

*

Burning. Romantic. Two.

The fourth day he lit them.

One on each side.

Lighting up the flower.

Making it beam after sunset.

I kept going back to watch it all night

Until the candles burned down.

*

Smiling. Waving. His eyes. 

Day five and for the first time

They met mine.

Frozen in place and unsure.

Could this be a dream?

His hand rested on the glass.

I smiled and waved back.

*

Awkward. Exciting. Nervous.

Day six and there was darkness.

Nothing to see in his window.

He wasn’t there.

I put on a dress and left. 

My window turned dark as well.

None of us home. None alone.

*

Memories. Time. His touch.

Days and days and days.

I look out my window

To where it all started. 

Other flowers. Other faces.

He doesn’t live there anymore.

Our window. Two flowers. One yellow and one red.

Underneath by Christina de Vries – POEM

Under a blue umbrella

Someone clearly missed

Beneath the sunny skies

Memories of one kissed

Behind the smile

All that’s left behind

Hidden in a lost face

Might be happiness to find

He looked and thought it obvious

By seeing, he just knew

Feelings can be easily disguised

Especially the true
