The heart…


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Oh the heart, the heart, my foolish heart,
broken, beaten up and scarred now that we’re apart.
But the heart, the heart, my foolish heart,
it loves you still and longs for a new start.

Oh this love, the love, my love for you,
it burns deep, bright and is powerful too.
But this love, the love, my love for you,
I wonder still is it enough to pull us through?

Oh this life, the life, my precious life,
it’s upside down ever since you withdrew.
But this life, the life, my precious life,
all I know is that it’s empty without you.

Oh a wish, this wish, my deepest wish,
be brave my love and come back to me.
But a wish, this wish, my deepest wish,
it scares me too since I wonder if we are meant to be.


A Love Like Ours


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A love like ours, as fucked up as can be,
soon though I hope it will be, as you promised, just you and me.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would fall,
for a man like you, but my heart you have it all.

It all started out messy and complicated to say,
we never got a fair chance, not till this day.
You promised to clean up this mess so that we,
can be finally together, just you and me.

My snowman where are you and why aren’t you here,
I my arms is where you should be and not over there my dear.
So please my darling, do as you say.
Leave the past the past and come over to me.

I know it is scary as scary as can be,
the future is uncertain but at least you’ll be with me.
I can’t predict what will happen or tell you it’ll work out fine,
but that shouldn’t stop you from being all mine.

I beg you my lover, my heart can’t take much more,
so please make a choice soon to walk in or out of my door.
Your friends think I’m crazy, that I am a psycho nut,
my friends think you’re a socio-path and they hate your gut.

I think it’s safe to say that we’ve hit rock bottom my friend,
we both have some healing to do and a broken heart to mend.
But if we can come together and work things out fine,
the only way to go from here is in an upwards line.

I really hope you’ll do what you say and that you will come through,
because since the day we met my darling my heart has always belonged to you.

I love you Snowman, more than words can describe.


Bounce-back heart…


It baffles me how easily my heart breaks,
A small gesture, tone of voice is all it takes.
It’s amendable thought and tough like a cookie,
bounces back to being that same old rookie.

I’m a dreamer you see, a romantic at heart,
I do believe in that fresh new start.
So I try and try again, I’ll never stop,
I know you are out there, might even bump into you in a shop.

The traveller.


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Take me with you wherever you go,
through narrow alleys and the streets you roam.

I’ll follow you anywhere I promise my dear,
to nations far away or countries that are near.

I don’t need much in life but just the guarantee,
of a bed to sleep in and your arms tightly wrapped around me.

With you by my side I am protected and safe,
You make me feel desired and encourage me to be brave.

Whatever you do or wish to achieve,
together we can make it, this I truly believe.

I know our future is uncertain and mostly undefined,
but wherever you travel to, please don’t leave me behind.



Love of my life.

Sometimes you just need a reminder that no matter how tough things will get, Love, when pure and true, should and will always prevail.

“So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side
You’re the love of my life, you know that I will never leave your side”.

“The Gambler”

Slow down, we’ve got time left to be lazy
All the kids have bloomed from babies into flowers in our eyes
We’ve got fifty good years left to spend out in the garden
I don’t care to beg your pardon, we should live until we die

We were barely eighteen when we crossed collective hearts
It was cold, but it got warm when you barely crossed my eye
And then you turned, put out your hand, and you asked me to dance
I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight

I swear when I grow up I won’t just buy you a rose
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely
For even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
I will not leave, I will not leave ’til it’s our time
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side

It was the winter of ’86, all the fields had frozen over
So we moved to Arizona to save our only son
And now he’s turned into a man, though he thinks just like his mother
He believes we’re all just lovers, he sees hope in everyone

And even though she moved away, we always get calls from our daughter
She has eyes just like her father’s, they are blue when skies are gray
And just like him she never stops, never takes the day for granted
Works for everything that’s handed to her, never once complains

You think that I nearly lost you when the doctors tried to take you away
Like the night you took my hand beside the fire thirty years ago to this day,
You swore you’d be here ’til we decide that it’s our time
But it’s not time, you never quit in all your life
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side
You’re the love of my life, you know that I will never leave your side

You come home from work, and you kiss me on the eye
You curse the dog, you say that I should never feed them what is ours
So we move out to the garden, look at everything we’ve grown
And the kids are coming home so I’ll set the table; you can make the fire

Ode to hearts broken…


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Oh, glorious glow that glides over water,
a wrinkle appears where tiny tears touch the surface.

Oh, wonderful crescent moon that watches over wounded souls,
the unbearable moaning of crushed spirits and lost dreams faintly in the distance.

Oh, mysterious willow tree that sadly bows its leaves for those who cannot hear,
the melody and rhythm of a song which a broken heart beats.

Oh, eternal flickering flame please don’t you ever die,
for love’s crooked smile is never ever a lie.


(May all broken hearts find that one true connection)

Rome Day 2 (04 September 2013)


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Day two of my Rome trip was warm, very very warm! Phew!

I started the day off by visiting a small antique market at ‘Mercato della Stampe’. It literally contained 9 booths with old junk. I would hardly call it an antique market, but oh well, it did direct me past ‘Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti’ the Spanish Steps and they were on my list for day 3 so I could tick that one off my list earlier than expected.



Because of the disappointment at the antique market I decided to have a nice stroll through the neighbourhood and met some of the local exotic species.




Very exotic pigeon right? ;)


My next stop was the Chiesa Basilica di San Clemente al Laterano and this became one of the most impressive things I saw during my trip! Unfortunately it was not allowed to take pictures inside the excavation area but I did take pictures of the outside of the Basilica, and sneakily took a couple inside the main Basilica.

You can find some pictures of the excavation area here though:

What’s so special about this Basilica is that it basically consists of three tiers of buildings stretching over centuries. The lowest level is a house built somewhere in the 1st century, the middle level is a Basilica and a Mithraeum dating from the 4th century and the top level is the Basilica that is still used today dating from just before 1100. If you ever visit Rome, I highly recommend visiting San Clemente!

After San Clemente I continued my way to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum (Foro Romano). I ended up spending about 3,5 hours around the Forum and visited some of the major highlights such as the Basilica of Constantine, the Arch of Titus, the Temple of Venus and Roma, House of the Vestal Virgins, Stadium of Domus Augustiana at Palatino, etc.

The Colosseum:




Hi… jup, that’s me :)

I was so tired after all of this I went back to the hotel to get changed and searched for a nice restaurant to have a pizza, and of course some ice-cream! :D


I’ll try to upload the rest of my trip asap!
