MY NEW FRIEND

freeze

I HAVE A NEW FRIEND WHO DECIDED

TO STAY WITH ME FOR SOME TIME.

SHE NEVER LETS ME FORGET ABOUT HER

WETHER AT WORK OR ASLEEP

SHE DEFINITELY STICKS OUT HER HEAD AND SHOUTS

HEY GIRL, DON'T YOU DARE TO IGNORE ME LIKE THAT.

I'M A BIT TIRED OF HER REALLY

BUT I CAN'T GET RID OF HER RIGHT NOW

I TAKE HER FOR A RIDE THREE TIMES AWEEK

TO A GUY SHE LIKES A LOT

HE MAKES HER LAUGH, MAKES ME CRY

AND WHEN I GO HOME AFTER THAT

FOR HER IT'S PARTY TIME.

BUT I HAVE A SECRET PLAN, AN ULTIMATE GOAL

TO LIMIT HER SPACE EACH DAY A BIT MORE.

THE DAY WILL COME THERE WILL BE NONE LEFT

AND I WILL BE FREE OF HER

FREE OF PAIN, TO GET ON WITH MY LIFE.

FROZEN SHOULDER

zonsondergang1


I’m freezing, I’m frozen, my shoulder won’t move anymore.

Lots of questions give way to lots of pain

Each centimeter lost has to be regained

During painful therapy sessions, three times a week

Good days create hope, bad days awful doubt

But on and on I travel on this painful road.

I dream of once more throwing my arms in the air,

To dress again and brush my hair without much ado

But I’m facing long months of struggle and pain

With no final promise of success in the end.

In the mean time work goes on like nothing happened

I smile and I work as hard as ever before.

But when my workday is over, I’m drained to the core…

RAIN

Rain_1

 

There you go, already so far away

I’m not sure we’ll meet again.

I see you leave and remember our old ways

How we thought we’ld be friends till the end of our days.

 

But time saw our friendship dwindle and go.

We never really had a big row

Just a lot of small differences, piled up day after day

Until they became mountains, blocking our way.

 

Now we greet each other carefully

Afraid to do more damage than time already did.

My words stumble and falter

Yours fall wrongly in my ears.

 

We look at each other, not knowing what to say

Until you sadly smile and turn away.

I want to call you back but sigh instead

And think: it’s going to rain today…

ZONDAG

Averbode groep

Kom, laat ons nog eens door de bossen lopen.

Laat ons blij zijn met elkaar, en glimlachen omdat het zondag is.

Laat ons vergeten wat ons pijn doet.

Soms is het net alsof we willekeurig bij elkaar gebracht werden door het lot en weinig met elkaar gemeen hebben.

Maar misschien is de stempel van onze ouders, van ons geboortedorp indringender dan al die verschillen.

Misschien is het stukje van onszelf dat voortleeft in onze verschillende herinneringen iets waaraan we ons telkens weer even kunnen verwarmen.

En zijn die schaarse momenten dat we samen zijn zo kostbaar omdat we heel even weer kunnen zijn zoals we waren, heel lang geleden.
