Why have I been silent for months

the question comes up
why have you been silent for months?

I have been empty
of the sacred desire to pen down
the remains

to watch myself
stand on the edge of my abyss
and not cry

for loss and findings
I want to stop writing about losing
but even while I breathe, I lose

this is why I have been silent for months
there will be words, I pray
there will be. words. I pray
every single night.

New years

the year treats us
like a day
long and short at the same time

pace, day break

On the break of day
A daily, long  line of papers fly
at the perfect pace

friends or lovers

A friendship, however hard it tries,
Will always be romantic.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the friendship,
Gently it goes

the injured bee

My head stings
says the injured bee
to the hand that hit her

Desolate rain

Desolate  rain
A menacing fox walks
covered by a box

The horses of Bruges

The horses of Bruges
tell a long story
of a lost princess who chased the geese
