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.
Here you can find the Poetrics I have made so far. I hope you will enjoy them! 🙂
If you have a special song and you would like if I made a Poetrics of it, just let me know on this page and I will certainly look into it!
Of course you can also dedicate it to someone.
Note: The lyrics always stay the property of the band or artist who wrote them. All the credit goes to them.

This song stands for love as survival, enduring love…hope, no matter how dark the day becomes…

Love ya much, bro.
I got a request from my dear friend Saunved —> http://saunved.wordpress.com/ to make a Poetrics of the song ‘Hero’ by Enrique Iglesias.
His description: It’s a song that shows what love means and what love can be if it’s left to bloom. It also shows the depth that is attached with love.
