Strikk

Standard

 

 

Jeg er mønsterstrikket

og har falt av pinnen

 

Snubler i de løse trådene,

de hengende maskene

 

Noen gikk amok

og strikket skjerf, meter på meter

med alt av restegarn, oppsop

fra mørkeste kjeller og loft

 

jeg trår garnet

prøver å finne en pen og rolig oppskrift

 

strikk et nytt liv

ryddig og regelmessig

 

virrer meg rundt

i heklenåler og villspor

 

passer visst bedre der

 

 

Reklamer

Please

Standard

 

that feeling of completeness last night, the moment when I take the microphone in my hand, and direct all my senses toward the piano, and her sitting there, playing with me, for me. Breathe. Close my eyes. Wait for the impulse in myself, and following it, the first words of the song fetching my soul and showing it; look, this is my story, this is me. Letting myself float on the rythm, securely, like I float in the sea.

when everything else feels like dying now, when I know with certainty that something in me is dying all the time. The future scares me, the past scares me, the violence of the changes in my body from the treatments certainly scares the hell out of me, as does the now faltering income. The neverending continuence of pain, discomfort: they rip me apart, piece by piece. No hope. More to come, always.

when the nights are spent more often looking at my own hand and watching the skin grow old. when dreams are nightmares and darkness.

Singing practise earlier yesterday: I had goosebumps on my arms throughout the song, over and over, from the pure joy of it. The letting go in my voice, the contact flowing free between us. Making music. Being me, no more, no less.

Please, please, Universe, let me have more of that. If I never get peace from the pain, at least let me have that. I beg from the deepest in me: let me have that.

 

Mercury

Standard

 

I forget, I forget

Everything I am, all I ever was

The darkness inside is a blackout

And I disappear

 

How small can the pieces be

Of what used to be me

Can I float back together

Like mercury

can I float back together

like mercury

 

I forget, I forget

Everything I am, all I ever was

what’s this love I have, this light you bathe me in

 I disappear

 

The melting of my bones

my skin, my heart

under your fingers

fluid just like mercury

can I float back together

like mercury
