I Don't Wanna Be Me

Ghost? Or just goofing around with long exposure shots? :)

Wouldn't it be nice
To be someone else, even just for a day
To feel their worries and fears,
Pain and suffering,
Joy and happiness
To focus completely, just for a while
On someone else, their troubles
Their passions in life
Their hopes and dreams
Just to get out of your own mind
For a while
Take some time off
And forget about you
Maybe then
Your own worries wouldn't seem
Quite as big






The picture above is my kind of selfie, a long exposure shot to give you that ghost effect. I'll get around to writing a post about how you can do it. It's quite fun!
And, remember to check out my Instagram page for more photos of northern lights and starry skies 🌌

I'll Wait

Northern lights, Aurora Borealis, above a small Lake in Western Norway.
Another one of my poems:

There is a place among the stars
Where I'll be waiting for you
Just above the northern lights
When the grass is covered in dew

Night after night I will be waiting
Don't you worry, my friend
Even when the sky is dark
The stars will shine in the end

When you miss me, don't be sad
Because I am not truly gone
You can always find me among the stars
That's where I live on

This was partially inspired by the beautiful song below, by the Icelandic band Kaleo:

All alone, alone again
No one lends a helping hand
I have waited, I have waited
Takes it's toll, my foolish pride
How long before I see the light
I have waited, I have waited
For you to lay me down

Writings


Ever since I was pretty young, I've enjoyed writing, especially writing poems. Sadly I've never been good at keeping the stuff that I wrote, but every once in a while I come across stuff from the past.

Writing has always been a way for me to process things, and often a way to let people around me know how i feel. In general, the urge to write disappears when I'm feeling good, but it tends to return once I'm down.

And lately I've felt like writing again.

Most of the time it's just silly things that I'll keep to myself, but every once in a while I'll share. Like this one I wrote as a reply when a friend of mine was complaining he couldn't get any sleep last night.

I am no stranger to sleepless nights, so his struggle immediately sparked some thoughts in me.


Sleep.
That Fleeting bliss
Dancing across the sky
Like a butterfly
In the sun

Me.
Trying to capture it
Never getting close enough
To take in its beautiful colors

Maybe I'll add on to it at a later point. But I hope you'll enjoy these random posts as I process my feelings and move on in life.

Just a Quote




“Didn't I say I'd always be your same stars?
If you get to missing me, just look up.”

The Stars, Darkness and I



Darkness pulling, dragging, holding me down
Everywhere I turn, it wants to engulf me
My soul is screaming, yelling, longing for air
Let me go, I'm losing my way

The light is fading quickly, leaving me behind
I'm scratching, crawling, trying to reach it
Every inch of me is fighting, trying to break free
Yet Darkness captures and lulls me

With loving gestures, caresses and softness
Darkness lures me to stay once again
I see the stars are still shining far in the distance
How I long to be dancing with them

I close my eyes, sleeping, dreaming away
To a place where I'm surrounded by sunlight
A place of safety where the shadows can't chase me
Let me go, I will finally be free
 ---

This is gonna be a bit philosophical and personal, as I came across a poem I wrote years ago. A poem that reminded me why I'm so fascinated with the night sky, the northern lights and the stars.
