I adore music almost as much as I adore writing. Maybe because some lyrics could
easily be a poem? Or because some songs can lift me up and make me feel strong
again? I don’t know, but the fact is that music can sometimes describe my
feelings better than I can do so myself.
So, I combine them into something I call ‘Poetrics’.
Poetrics is a combination of lyrics from some of my favorite songs and poetry I write inspired by these songs.
I take the essence of the song, the meaning it has, and write a poem on that. Then I let the lyrics of the song dance through the poem.
Note: The lyrics always stay the property of the band or artist who wrote them. All the credit goes to them.
Kane is one of my favorite Dutch Rock bands.
My poetry is written in White, the Lyrics are written in Red.
Can you Handle Me ( Song by Kane)
No more fighting, I have to surrender
I just want you
I need you
Resisting becomes harder and harder
But you already know that I want you
No more running, you will catch me
I just have to have you
I have to kiss you
O darling, you make me clingy
Love me, heal me
But don’t turn me down no
No more hiding, I’ve been discovered
I just love you
I adore you
You got my mind scrambled
Keep drugging me with all the things you do
No resistance, you can have me
I just long for you
I heal because of you
But are you sure that you can handle me?
So hear me, feel me
Oh can you handle me baby
