There are shadows
In the mirror
I don’t dare to take a glance,
Too afraid of what it shows
Once I come near
And see them dance.
So I only scurry past
And hide my vulnerable heart
‘Cause what if I hate what I see?
What if the image looks like me?

What if the image looks like me?
Is that not what I like to see?
I ask my vulnerable heart
Why I only scurry past.
Why fearing a dance
Or coming near,
Who put these shadows in my mind?
‘Cause when I dare to take a glance,
This mirror
Shows a lot of light.

Isn’t it curious

How I never wanted;

Scared like an animal,

Burnt, baring my teeth.

And then I did

Because I couldn’t not

And it makes me smile.

So contradictory,

The panic in my lungs,

The proud relief.

Let’s go out and drink,

A coffee, a tea or something else;

I’m scared, but we will see.

I wrote you a poem, too,

You know?

It’s not really about you, though,

And maybe that’s why there’s not an us,

That’s why there never was

A reason for me to let you know

That I wrote you a poem, too.

I hope you don’t mind it, though,

That I write images I’ll never show.

And sometimes
I still think about you
And this
And us.
I think about that
The picture in my mind
Of a happy future
Is moving in with you,
Without consequences,
Just living together
With a horde of cats,
And I wonder what that says
About me
And this
And us.
Has it really never been love?
