The Mirror in my Pocket

Two sides in a reflection of
pictures to delete
You and I, or both of us,
but only pieces of me

Deep in my pocket,
broken and not complete
Who am I, what can I see,
or who could it be

My eyes dance alone
on the mirror’s frame
in slow motions to the
melody of broken glass

Lost in a cracked surface,
life picture isn’t the same
In between lies the hope,
leaved in the pile of mass

Sound of a Sunset

Evening sparrows fill the night
with tones, played on the leafs
Calm winds give bubbles
in a tiny puddle on the ground
The shadows sleep on the clouds
in a dream of a snoring sun

Maybe…

…there’re days by the field

from morning to the night

It’s a hard work to do, 

heavy duty without a fight

There’re sweat and tears, 

from the sun to the moon

Early start, nothing to say,

only an hour to the noon

There’re lives underground, 

from the plant to the grape

Cold water fills the throat, 

to shine, live and get in shape

Too much

🎼

Grabbing a glass of beer,
to the sound of a country song
Singing alone my dear,
for being your love, all night long

Fills my life by the barrel tap,
when the body turns to dry
Starts my engine after a nap,
when it lives and don’t die

Hoping to find what I hear,
in a life from bar to bar
Dancing alone my dear,
for being gone, not too far

Fills my life by the barrel tap,
when the body turns to dry
Starts my engine after a nap,
when it lives and don’t die

Shaking the hips and the bone,
to the sound from the strings
Changes words on every tone,
for playing to it springs

Fills my life by the barrel tap,
when the body turns to dry
Starts my engine after a nap,
when it lives and don’t die

🎼

Cat a strophe

In the mood as a disaster 
Lies my will on the floor 
Untouched among cats 
Miles from the outer door

Alone in the rocking chair
Rests my lust under the rails
Sanded to gravel of  stone
When worries cuts the nails

No no no…

Every night I’m squeezing
my pillow, hard and harder,
until I fall asleep, heavily

Every hours of sleep,
at night, is the nightmare
still alive, still beside

Every morning I wake up,
sad, scared and alive, but
lives next to a nightmare

Sweet dreams needs to
fill my pillow every day
and every moment…

…please

Trust

In this place,
on this earth,
there is a meaning,
at least mine

I try to explore my
inner with tools
I don’t have or
which one to use

What’s in my toolbox?

To trust my choices
and opportunities,
places the horizon
ever further away

I can’t see it but
I can feel it when
I’m resting my brain
on my invisible pillow

Through the Eyes

Kindness in the speed of the light
gets through the gaze of the dark
Emptiness in the need of the night

Under the Stars

Somewhere, high above
shines a star on my half-
hearted mission of being
the best version of me

In between, rests a destiny,
heavy on the clouds under
the stars, to lay my star,
softly and warm in my hand

Below, under my feet
shakes the ground in time
with my heartbeats, loudly
so you can hear me sing

Shared Moments 

I just borrowed the sun
that shines in your eyes,
to dry my lonely tears

I walked by the path  
you have in your heart,
to share my moments

I sailed by the wind
in your broken mind,
to lighten my anchor 

I caught the sky
you sent down to me,
to open my soul

Speakable…

On a bench, a painted word
drops down on a leaf
By a leaf, a silent touch
lifts an eye above the head
Inside a head, a good thought
spinning to slips aside
One step aside, a bad
feeling bouncing in the chest
Deep inside the chest, a new word
waiting to paint a heart
Stuck in a heart, a painted letter
still rest on a bench

In Bloom…

🥀 The Flower as I 🌻

From a crack in the street, grew a flower with the aim of eternal life.
The asphalt that covered playgrounds and cycling paths was surrounded
by concrete houses. He grew up beyond all the fine flower arrangements and
the road was never straight. The road that led him forward was crooked
and lined with obstacles and resistance.

The acquisition, which was governed by inheritance and obligation, was
the predetermined course. Nothing went as wrong as the credible thesis
– a theory failed. With death as a close visitor, the life got a second chance.
From an asphalt flower to a victim after a deadly journey under a vehicle,
the wounded plant rised against all odds.

From a course change to discourse in the academic flower box, new seeds
where spread. Nectar that has always been there, was suffocated due to
uncertainty. The survivor of the working-class society became a conqueror of
dual bachelor’s degree. The conquest is unique in the collection of familiar
flowers.

Dramatized acting on stage became plant nutrient to the root. The strength
of memorizing the words in the script, became the flower’s power on the stage.
Predisposition for artistic analysis is the strength that strengthens the stem.
Water and sun are mixed with culture that breathes over the leaves.

The pot of poetry
will be filled to the brim
with hungry poems
to feed a starving poet.

Words and emotions
are fed with stanzas
and verses from the
middle of the soul.

The damaged flower
survived a serious
car accident, this day
41 years ago…

and he is still in bloom.

Fighting the truth

The uncertainty in my eyes
hides the knowledge I have
My mind is in control of the
words you hear but not feel

The speech in my voice
is another bite on my lips
An incision along my tongue is
a choice to swallow my pride

Beside us in another direction
boils the letters to a new
reality you own when you talk
but I’m only listen to myself

In between faces of altercation
grows all we don’t see but
only hear it as bouncing eco
from hearts to a fight of the truth

Fall

Small fragments                                                 of a light wind                                                     blowing away, fast 
of a slow storm,
full of anxiety.

A hurricane spins
around as a typhoon
in my head until
I fall like the
house of cards.

I lie flat on
the ground until
it sinks away,
lower and lower,
and I with it…

Complexity

It’s a complex world,

full of bubbles in a bubble

One wants out, the other

still making trouble

All feelings in a dense

forest, waiting for the rain

The sun shines when the lust

is in the moss to feel the pain

Down the mountain goes

a lucky road from the top

From a hope to a jump out

shakes the ground without a stop

©️ Björn Blomqvist 2021-12-30

Uncomfortable

Am I too nice

to be hard

when the world

turns upside down?

Am I too afraid

to show my sensitivity

when other spins

the earth backwards?

Am I too weak

to be strong

in a weightless universe,

empty of content?

Am I too difficult

to be a number

when my genius

sleeps on the moon?

Window Mode

Since 2012, I have written 299 poems, and this will be the 300th. What’s out there and what’s in here, is an interpretation of my poetry that has constantly moved from my inner feelings to beautiful and enlightening things I have seen outside and around me. It has and will perhaps be a journey between the light and the darkness. But in between there’s a force so strong as in the best moments can move the mountains, who are a part of the roller coaster in my life.

So this is my 300th poem

A tiny light, surrounds
by the darkness, I feel

Crushed life that sounds
when emotions are real

Rays of the sun, walks
in a motion, so bright
Color of sensitive talks
paints my hope, by night

A feeling of calm, plays
alone when you can’t see
An inner fight in days,
a personal war for me

All bricks in the wall, sings
a capella for deaf ears
Dare to look, touch things,
doing it, without fears

Between Grief and Grapes

Barrels full of tears in a sad patrol, rest to store fears in rows, surrounded by it’s enemies in oak uniforms. Red wine in the color of spilled blood, survived the battle between the grief and the grapes. In frontline with shields, thin like the shells of the grapes, a bloodline is the line behind the enemy. The infantry still standing on the feet of the wine glasses, ready to fight for what they crying for. Deep down in a wine cellar, far from the sunlight, lies a grief, alone and missed by the survivors who refusing to leave them for the next harvest.

Along the Road

Step by step on a forgiving road,  

a walk alone

Heavy rain falls from the fog, 

a day to remember 

Going back for a moment, 

a memory on a stone 

Lights in the night on a shining mind, 

a day in november 

Tone after tone of a surviving song,  

a mystery voice 

Heavy clouds push me down, 

an emotional fight

Climbs up through the haze, 

haven’t a choice

Strength in the body on a rising soul, 

to catch what’s right 

© Björn Blomqvist 2021-12-12

🎼 Once

Be the way,
easily walked
inside my heart

Be the song,
beautifully sung
outside my soul

Be the melody,
softly played
through my head

Be the dream,
slowly touched
on my mind

Be the words,
lovely whispered
in my ears

Voices


In meanwhile, when everything
are resting in silence, but in a
head full of voices, on a slope,
down through my chest, rolls
everything I’m afraid of, faster
and faster till the end of what?

Thoughts in the Snow

IMG_0886

Being alone in a quiet place, 
by winter’s time in the bay. 
Seeing snow far from space, 
near home, a beautiful day.

Finding a sound of a wave, 
to come and cover a stone.  
Looking for moments to save, 
when words are being alone.

Untouched Dots…

I don’t know, but I think I…
feel that, the worst, but I…
don’t know if it’s true, if I…
can’t have a clue, when I…
think on it, untouched…

Heavy

Falls like
a plummet 
to the bottom, 
when my anxiety 
surfs on the waves, 
and all my thoughts 
are heavy as the ship
in the port by the 
sea of worries

At ones

One thing within, like a sin 
Starts of a reason this season 
One time on prime, like a crime,  
Starts to swear, everywhere and here 
One way, like I´’ve say,  
Ends on this line, even mine

Posted

As thoughts 
in a mail box,
out of emptiness,
without sender,
sleeps the Devil

ready to kick

through the lid.

In the land of Anxiety

In the land of anxiety, 
at a port in tears
rest the ships, 
close to the cranes 
In the land of anxiety, 
on a airport of fears
sits the worries, 
inside the planes

In the land of anxiety, 
on a lake of scars,
dies the pain,
fixed on the hook
In the land of anxiety,
under the stars,
stands the anger,
to get a look

Ordskogen

Är vilse i skogen av alla vackra ord,
med en kartbok i handen,
 fylld med svordomar jag
inte kan uttala.
Ord som växer i diket 
längs vägen som förde mig hit…

To hold back

A moment to explode or, 
an accidental piece of shyness, 
can't get it in bloom, all you want, 
the will, the most lovable feeling, 
inside a bubble that you can't crack, 
because the fear is a thick skin on
an equally thick layer of shyness...

...why?

Captured

Inside, like air of a balloon
by thin shelter of thoughtfulness
stands a man in a comfort zone,
sad with lack of happiness.
Stuck, as flies in the spider’s net
lies a hug all alone, miles away,
captured by thoughts to regret,
now or later, mostly yesterday.

Silver Roses

Color doesn’t matter 
by the end of the rainbow
when roses grow, by love,
but die by the waterfall,
in meanwhile all the
golden flowers build 
a road along a silver field,
full of roses to walk on,
for you, only for you…

Unstoppable

Filled by fire, 
a monster of a kind, 
what happened, 
what is it to find. 

To feed, to grow, 
like a big worry,
what is it, what 
makes me sorry?

Bad thoughts, 
an anxiety to fight,
what happened, 
there’s no light.

To feed, to grow 
like a big ball,
what is it, what 
makes me fall?

Body boiling pressure

IMG_1132

Uncut thoughts are filled to the top
all the way down through my body
Unresolved issues run non stop,
to pump my veins, hard and bloody

Unwanted information, in a war room
between my chest and my brain
Unpolished madness on moon
a monster to makes me insane

Unidentified emotions are still left
when the pressure begins to rise
Undesirable reactions are a theft
full of explosive hatred as the prize

Words to picture

One word, one person, a frame

Two words, two colors, a contour

More words, many motifs, one picture 

One voice, one listener, one opinion 

Two voices, two people, one talk

A lot of repeats, huge mistakes, one chance 

…who am I, to judge? No answer

När det blir fel…

…vill försvinna för en stund

eller bara få vara osynlig 

på obegränsad tid i rymden

eller där ingen letar, dit 

ingen kommer, där karta

och kompass inte finns…

Inner War

In a selfmade war, I’m standing
when my anxiety’s bombs are landing 
and smashes me in pieces 
that never will be found 
when my thoughts in my head 
goes around and around 
to struggle and fight 
when my emotions fall apart 
by night, in the duvet’s entrenchment 
and I mediate for peace 
in my brain, captured by sense,
tied in a chain…

Tvära kast

Som fåglar runt hjärnboet 
landar känslorna mjukt 
i bröstet när allt omkring 
är osynligt,  men nära 
som om det inte fanns, igår.

Som en vind från ingenstans 
virvlar tankarna som en 
getingsvärm i hjärnboet 
tills allt faller till marken, 
hårt, dagen efter.

Traffic light life

behind the glass, under the surface,

colored in red, green and yellow

Obscure Spring Poem

The warmest star in our solar system 

is awake longer and longer, 

as far as the distance between 

my thoughts and the darkness 

down my soul, to catch 

a moment to touch

when nothing exists in the blood

under the skin in my veins,

when flowers grow fast

above land to drink water

from my body of dry emotions

and drunken leaves full

of anger on a highway to 

the sun and back…

Contrasts

When the earth 
spins around 
in circles

You are the sun 
I’m the moon

When the world 
turns over
upside down

You are the God
I'm the devil

When universe
stays strong
to survive 

You are the stars
I'm the chaos

When the rainbow
ends somewhere 
close to us

You are wise
I’m the searcher

The Motif 🎨

A moment,
a walk on the clouds
when all stars
captures your emotions

A moment,
a life within the framework
when all colors
stays in your mind

A moment,
a life inside the painting
when all artists
paints your happiness

A moment,
a walk on the sun
when all paintbrushes
creates your beauty

Shadow by Truth

Who cries by your side, 
when lies are what you hide
Who walks on your mind, 
when talks stays behind 

Who fights in your head, 
when the lights is dead
Who fears what you say,
when tears fills the day

Who wins in your game, 
when twins looks the same
Who trust your story, 
when you must be sorry

Wrong sense

By train, full of emotions
on a railway, made of thoughts,
vibrates my fears
from side to side

By air, loss of lifes,

in a sky, made of mistakes,
falls my mind
from the cloud to the ground

By boat, empty of happiness

on a sea, made of tears,
sinking my destiny
to the botton

Surface II

On water, by the sea of waves
Surfs my anxiety through the net

Unwelcome thoughts are not the saves
It will cost my temper and all I bet

In days, by the pandemic with fears
Swims my worries, deep down
Under surface, there’re hidden tears
As long as it stays, my mind will drown

Two thoughts, by a single brain
Floats apart and drifts away
Every day, a struggle of strain
To find a healing soul to stay

Along the coast, by a broken heart
Flying my torpedoes under the skin
In my veins, there’s a bloody start

At a moment, the anxiety sets to spin

I en värld, upp och ned,

Why Poetry…

Somewhere in universe, to a forgotten place. Somewhere but close to the outer space.

There is a poetry box, locked but filled of words, lines and united letters, ready to fly with the birds

Down from a dark sky, to bounce on the stars, comes all emotions to a poem and landing softly on my scars.

Deep down

No light in my
emotional jungle,
I search to find
a fight to running
my mind.

In the dark my
feelings start to yell,
I spark my brain
in an unbeatable
pain.

Ensamma trädet

Ett ensamt träd,

ett lövfall i vinden,

kämpar i vinden,
när fåglar vaknar

Ett ensamt träd,

Hit by a car…

My guardian angels of 1981,
were on duty to make it done.
My playful life the day before,
wasn’t ready to live anymore.

My guardian angels that night,
were on duty to make it bright.
My scars the invisible tears,
weren’t ready to live on fears.

My guardian angels in strife,
were on duty to save my life.
My sight the wounded head,
weren’t ready to be dead.

Autumn night’s love echo

Leaves are falling down to the ground
as quietly as the wind in your hair when

Ongoing Projects

260 poems have now been sorted and categorized. Four different topics. Mostly love, thoughts and visual impressions. The reason with it, is to publish my favorite poems in a book someday.

The ongoing write process with my debut novel has get better. The deadline is set to spring 2021. The novel will be somthing between a crime novel and an youth novel.

Broken

Let my inner silence
dance
on a thread
above devil’s sea


Let my empty soul
escape earth,

alone in the dark

Let my cold heart
melt away,

heavy fall apart

Let my broken thoughts
drown down,

fast like a stone

Corona’s poem

Distance is the new normal
and my lips are sealed
in protection as formal,
when I’ve enter people’s field

Loneliness, night and day
in our souls and hearts
when the end is far away they say,
if nothing ends before it starts

Closed world open the mind
and learn what went wrong
when you searching to find
answers, weak or strong

Giving up or fight, the choice
to struggle or running away
to write a poem as my voice
when nothing is left one day

Unfocused

It came as a seed
to ruin my mind,
suddenly a need
to search and find

It’s back tomorrow
as a scar in my past,
dressed like a sorrow
and grows too fast

It bangs alone
still inside my head,
heavy like a stone
to hang in a thread

It’s now or never
to catch and release,
push it down forever
piece by piece

Där sitter dom,

ett hål i mitt bröst

Den virvelvind jag känner,
en katapult av känslor,
fyller oceaner…

briserar i ett explosivt
crescendo

Dagen är förlorad
tills en okänd morgondag
vaknar

I framtidens ovisshet
krafsar gårdagen ömt under 
huden

Out of order

Empty thoughts
in the speed
of the light,

struggling
out of control
in the command
of the brain

Big things
are blinded
in the dark
of the night,

kicking
the ghosts
in the front
of the train

The Wrestler

I’m dressed, blue or red,

to the struggle in my head

Steps in circles, side to side,

for a brainless stride

Be alone, now or later,

when the pain will be greater

Tomorrow, day or night,

to a mindful fight…

…in the darkness, out of sight

© Björn Blomqvist 2019-03-06

Lost in…

Deep, deep through my soul,
the sound of a falling stone
There is a big empty hole,
around and always alone

On and inside my boiling head,
the heat of a burning mind
To catch thoughts, alive or dead,
don’t know and what am I to find

Rensa ur

Snurra hjulet, titta ned 
Känn vinden, bromsa upp
 
Ropa högt, lyssna in
 
Fånga stunden, pusta ut
 

Spring för livet, kasta loss 
Hämta andan, greppa tag
 
Rensa tankar, samla kraft
 
Hitta tillbaka, alldeles tom

Stuck

As you know, I’m published as poet in two anthologies and now try to figure out what am I have as a poem to this year’s anthology.

It’s two weeks to deadline and maybee I need more red wine or only a better self confidence.

Wish me luck…

Lost

I tried to find poetic lines,

that bouncing against a black wall

of unbreakable bricks

I tried to capture feelings,

that fall into an open sea

of sunken love

I tried to say words,

that rise to a sky

of untouched clouds

Honesty

Honesty’s question mark,
a force,
but for someone,
a struggle to perfection

Who?

Honesty’s goodness,
a need,
but for someone,
to drown in Anxiety’s list,

of…

…what’s right and wrong – good or bad

Being sad instead,
to be mad

Why

I did not, would I?

I wanted it, but…

…an inner voice said that

Thank you very much,

thanks…

…for everything

A cold farewell,

nothing more

Sjörike

En strimma ljus, en sol i ögonen

En färd framåt, en vind i ryggen

En hjälpande hand, en våg i aktern

En drivande kraft, en åra i vattnet

En bildskön vik, en horrisont i fjärran

En svalkande vind, en båt i rörelse

En avskild plats, en brygga i sikte

Viken

Skummet yr kring den sten
jag döpte en sommar
Viken ligger öppen
som den famn jag dig gav
Vågorna gör mossan mjuk,
lika mjuk som ditt namn
En lätt bris bryter tystnaden,
så tyst som du var då
Regn genom solstrålarna dina,
på en yta i regnbågens kulör

© Björn Blomqvist 2018-02-26

Why?

Enough, my head
explodes
Nerves of steel
were
just paper
There is a limit,
or there
were
A line, thin
as a invisible thread

© Björn Blomqvist 2018-02-11

That moment

There’s a poem in the air,
a poem to write by night
Letter after letter, a line,
to see, to feel and to fear
There’re words on the paper,
words to catch by the light,
Day after day, a house of cards,
to see, to feel and to tear

Färdas

Med vindens fart
en svala så när
på jorden ur havet
ett hjärtas själ
Med vingars hjälp
en ängel så kär
på himlen ur molnet
ett ömt farväl

Fredagslabyrinten

I en labyrint vandrar mörkret steget före 
mot den utväg som inte finns, inte här 
inte där heller, bländad av ljuset - överallt 
Myrsteg framåt, eller bakåt? Snurra runt 
Yr i bollen, ett platt fall, himlen är stjärnklar 
Marken är våt, gräset högt och ansiktet ned 
Jorden snurrar och marken skakar min kropp, 
fylld av halta druvor och promillesoldater 
i ett (full)skaligt krig med förnuft och känsla

A nightmare world

Somewhere in my inner soul
there is a force, an unwelcome one,
whose purpose is to throw me away
from the present and put me in the future
A time shaped by all the mistakes
I have done in the course of history

Öm

Därunder, innanför som äggula
Ett tunt skinn, en hud – fotsula
Trampar mark – sparkar bakut
Skalet spricker – när tar det slut?

Nattens blomma 🌹

Lidelse genom dagen

som vissna blad

En blommas arma knopp,

när natten gör en glad

Nothing of nothing

An empty space
consists of nothing
Divided in two parts
The eyes are blind
by the black surface…

…Hindered by hearts

One world of hope
dreams of everything
Gathered on one place
Our Globe is blind
by the darkest clouds…

…It still an empty space

© Björn Blomqvist 2017-11-23

what ends?

The end,
end of something,
something that ends
in this moment,
ends up
soon…
in a living soul,
lost of hope,
hopes to end
that moment by
something…

Den som inga byxor har…

Himlen i en ljus nyans, ett tyg ett hav
blåare än mönstret om sömmens nav
Skuggans mörka kant, en fåll ett stygn
starkare än solkustens alla dygn

Svetten kring midjan, en åtsittande här
varmare än hjärtats eldiga atmosfär
Gylfens tajta band, en dragning i sänder
svagare än värmen från dina händer

Gräset mot tyget, en grönska så stor
grönare än den avundsjuka som gror
Ytan i ett solblekt material, en hetta
obehagligare än den is som lättar

Oceaner av bara ben, ett byxlöst land
större än de jeans som sytts för hand
Tyget så raspigt känns, fläckat av slem
mjukare än lädret om spännet i en lem

@ Björn Blomqvist 2017-08-30

When or since?

Big but thin, in a bubble, I live

for the moment, yesterday, just now

Empty but alone, in my mind, I hope

for now, tomorrow, the day before

Invisible but alive, in other’s heads

for a week, or days,  in a moment
