Afterglow

post-it-2502015__480

There’s this and that

And things to do

These and those

Trials and tribulations

(I live)

And looking at me

I might seem lonely

But I’m not

(I think)

But out of all those stars

None shines down on me

They just cast

A distant glow

(I fear)

 

 

Science Refuted

Krant, Lezen, Informatie, Nieuws

 

He folded news and reading glasses

Tidy  and neat

And pretty damn sure

That they had kissed before.

In this universe that shouldn’t exist

He had felt Helena’s lips.

 

Tired he leaned back

Trying to grasp the math

Na,’ he said:

Believing we did once met

Is by far the safer bet.’

 

He closed his eyes

And  wished some more

As he had done squared times before.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lesser Years

neil

Children of  these lesser years

Growing up with enemies

and heroes made of make-believe

Nothing  really to achieve

Growing cold in hate and fear

And hardly something to hold dear.

 

Some of the old  are still around

Longing for some long lost warmth.

 

Hoping to be found

Willing to change

And dying to say:

Never, never, never,

Never again!

Shake the Disease

shake-the

Suppose

Another me

Speaking firm and warm

In a widely spoken tongue

 

Suppose

Another you

Listening

 

Imagine

Us

Just a little longer

Supposing we’ll be fine

(for M and S)

 

 

Veronderstel

Een andere ik

Vastberaden en warm sprekend

De woorden die je zo graag wil horen

 

Veronderstel

Een andere jij

Luisterend

 

Stel je voor

Wij

Nog heel even

Veronderstellend dat het goed komt

(voor M en  S)
