9 Month Cycle Competitions 2020-2021

to be continue….


4th Month Competition with THEME: DARK NIGHT

DARK NIGHT

in the depths of my brain

far, very far away

a vague memory rises and falls

sometimes I catch a glimpse, no more than that.

that glimpse has no shine

it feels dark, wet and slippery

and before I can form an image in my head

the indeterminate black is gone.

oh dear dear soul,

let rest what doesn’t want to be seen

let sleep what does not want to be awakened

let forget what does not want to be known

give me strength and warmth

to wander further in carefree joie de vivre.

3th Month Competition with THEME: PASSION

“I am captive, no room to breathe
the air is hot, suffocatingly hot
my calves cramps, cramp after cramp,
my head in a vise that continues to tighten.

what did I do to make this happen?
what have I done, what have I done?
where was I until this could happen?
where was I, what have I done?

I can’t sit still, I walk and I walk
my mouth is a scream, but I make no sound
I walk and I walk and I feel calmer
my breath getting better, the air no longer hot

one thing will be certain
I now know that I love
myself as I am
captive or not, I love

Myself”
