    you said
    'a hard goodbye
    makes a happy return'
    but since you
    took your last sunbeam
    with you
    i realized
    there were no
    hard goodbyes before
    because
    now i face
    the hardest one
    without
    a returning
    "hello"
    from you

    snow feels hot
    rain makes me dry
    so much did i cry
    becoming cold
    colder than ice

    i need some sleep
    when you are awake
    restless i dig deep
    deeper in my memories
    until i find peace

    the sun is dark
    clouds are heavy
    so much did you spark
    becoming brighter and
    heavier on my mind

    i finally let go
    cutting all the strings
    leading to you
    let the wind take you
    away to the vast
    away from me

    I errased you
    Even in my poetries
    Written with a ballpen
    But now you are
    Back again
    And the highlighters
    Are so dazzling
    Marking every word
    In my texts
    Because I associate
    Everything
    With you

    Inspired by @asmakhan, thank you for introducing me to Elfchen poem with your post! ☺

    Fault
    Clinging tight
    Under my skin
    Forgiving is a parlous
    Experience

    just like a hypotenuse
    without the right angle
    you didn't see me
    from your viewpoint
    and forgot me
    to put me in your pocket

    Don't take a picture of me
    It would black out your screen

    We looked down the train tracks
    People come and go
    I felt my heavy backpack
    On my shoulder
    Your eyes on me
    I felt my heart skipping
    To the beats of traffic
    Your hand in my hand
    I felt my thoughts fighting
    With my emotions
    And you smiled, unsure
    But you knew
    I was travelling
    But reached home

    ein traum wird war
    hat kristallklare konturen
    in denen wir uns einsaugen
    niemanden reinlassen
    und immer weiter wandern
    zum traum

    und ich gehe wie nie zu vor
    deine stimme ist neben mir
    wie die jahre davor
    nur jetzt sehe ich in deine augen
    die geschlossen sind
    weil sie mich sehen

    wieso zerbrechen wir
    und fügen uns wieder zusammen
    wieso landen wir
    und heben ab in andere welten
    lass uns zurück gehen
    in die welt

    das licht, es brennt auf der haut
    die erzählt, was war
    wir wissen nicht mehr
    wer wir sind, was wir waren
    vergessen alles und flüstern
    vom traum

    when they look up
    i want to see beneath me
    because i am floating
    above an endless abyss
    it is calling me
    but i am not falling
    waiting for
    a strong earthquake
    to be my infinite number

    It is hard to stay
    To be an abiding moon
    Circling around you
