Zywa The small world

When my friend comes
I don't have to do
anything to make things
happen, shamelessly

we are who we want to be
we let warm breaths
play with happiness
in our blood, and exchange

words for bites
of peace in our belly
- the small world
   of contentment

   in the big world
   of striving -
until we are satisfied
and stop laughing

Zywa In the dark at my window

Light dances out from the club
It colours the wind
in my net curtain

The rain rustles and splashes
in the greasy gleam of the wet film
over the mud road through the village

A woman and a man appear
and play in their underwear
They push and slide

Mud on their skin, I watch
and undress in the dark
Where is my darling?

The click of the key
the shoes in the cabinet
the slight rustle in the toilet

and intimately the gleam
under the bathroom door, his smell
entering at my feet

So predictable
how he slides towards me
carefully warming his hands

under his armpits
to caress me
from sleep to wonderful

and to make me stretch out
in a sea of time
where the wind rises

and hands and mouths
rush unstoppably
till the sky clears

And then

You got up early, I know
how you unfold a shirt
pull it over and enjoy
the cool fabric

     I don't feel like
     getting dressed yet, wait
     at the kitchen counter

     until the tea is brewed
     then I fold your clothes
     very precisely and lay them
     in the closet. What shall I

     and what shall I wear?

I sink back in fatigue, dreaming
to catch up what I don''t come around to

have to weep you wet for more

to give what I dont come around to

Just going to bed alone
at midnight, it makes no sense
to warm his place for him
or to guess in recovery position
where he could be

At times I find an M
in a heart somewhere
with a smile
I put that note
in my yearbook

When I go peeing at night
I see him lie, being awake
enough to get confused
by the odour of his sleep
and then I have to wait

Take all the time in the morning
For love

feeling what is going on

not fantasizing
feeling what is going on
outside, over there, a farewell
their arms around each other

and all the way long
my legs are tired
from the runner who smiles
at the happy woman

tears in my eyes
over the baby in her pram
it is getting dark
my window a mirror

in which my preliminary self
asks for love
for my marriage
under construction

and for my body
oh mirror image

for a next time, love

is waiting and waiting
is being alive, you were confused
you wanted me

to pamper me, to cook for me
and you had fantasies, patiently
waiting, about a night

The stars are living bright
seen from my bed
very deep
inside the window frame

Comfortably cool you lie beside me
but my skin is burning
where I miss you, you
are sleeping satisfied

after the long evening
in this longhouse, where we
only dared to make love
restrainedly, not used

to hear it from others
For the rest I don't hear anything
but rustling rain
that warm pleasure

of the children, and for us
if there had been no neighbours
who would be ashamed
So we did not do that

and we did it quietly
like the lash mites
that let us sleep
when they mate

You'll first have to win
enough love with me
as a passport, and even then
you may not get any further

than a waiting room
where you are spun in

of my own feelings

leaking out of my hand

hiding that I am lying

breathing in her lungs
and eating in her belly

flowing in her existence
with my love, my lover and my friends

together, wherever we are
at the same time fully conscious

that the weeks are running through the years

but that is practical -
the cold side

A warm friendship is
unorganized love
(mutually convenient or not

to nourish each other

in the image you have of the other
which you like to keep in your heart

a friend is familiar
a friend is peace
even if you grow apart
you still will love each other

is everything, less and less a home

a nicely set table
a borrowed book, movies
always in the same chair
and a neighbour visiting

Lots of time together
but he has a hobby and I don't

with silence and sleep
no radio, no talking

There is no connection
You are too early or too late
You don't match up

But in the scraping
when passing
there is contact and you stay
connected, mutually
a piece

of the world that just continues
There is attention
which you need, even
if it is lost upon you
Because you want to know for sure

you want to feel
and cherish
that the love
the friendship
is real

Zywa Let's go on vacation

On vacation it is different
Then you are the man
I saw in you

then we do everything together
then we look together
viewed as together -

the outside of it
our two bodies
which are curiously scanned

through our clothes
We see it happen
and we see ourselves

as desirable persons
with fondle skin and lips
that laugh and whisper sweetly

I imagine it while
I wait for the kettle
Let's go on vacation

Zywa Sensitive love

There is a lot I can no longer
do spontaneously
I touch myself with caution
and rather let you look

than act, but sometimes
the tingling of your
caress arouses unfulfillable needs
deeper and deeper in me

They are sleeping
in my cells, still
desiring to jump you
but your hands ward me off

as a precaution, so sensitive
are our skin and our bones
so painful it can be
to wish to be young

Zywa Presents with a bow

To be touched, I must
first be seen or heard, which is
becoming increasingly difficult

My smile is still sweet, but I
had to speak sweet words and
the words had to be sweeter

My body is still beautiful, but you
gave me perfume, a fishnet dress
and black-red lingerie

as if I am a doll
a new one, that you like
to explore with pinches and kisses

the hard in the weak
curious about my cuddliness
and the little sounds I will sigh

For the mystery of my soul
you have only little patience
half an ear and a fleeting eye

Trefwoord: Touched 

Zywa In bed I think you

In bed I think you
close to me, I am -
my shapes in your hands
and can forget for a while

My belly on the inside full
of bruises, right there
I long for you, I want to feel
you and not know an hour

Clean and fragrant from the bath
happily ever after
sucking and caressing
horsing around immortally

Do what I can do, dream
take my mind off, change
my horizon until you are here
and eat something in between

Zywa Intimacy

Only experiences count
now that every day matters:
new activities
beauty to the full

and attention to me
The rest, I clear out
What I have saved for years
I throw away neatly

in wrapping paper
or I fold flowers from it
witch will get dusted
in memory

of my company
our meetings
which cannot wait
We give each other

this day, everything
that can be intimate between
people in the passing
of an ordinary day

I do the fun things
that everyone says
he'd like to do, with you
and you and you and you
