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.
My Poetry is written in Italic, the Lyrics are written Bold.

Strange Sight by KT Tunstall
Wearing a mask pretending not to care
Protecting yourself like you always do
But burdens are lighter when you share
So I will keep reaching out to you
Lost in the darkness
You will be found
If you hear my voice
Follow the sound
The darkness has lured you in
You have lost all faith long ago
But each day is a new begin
If you find a path to follow
Strange how your dark doesn’t faze me
No, I won’t give up on you
Life has brought too much pain to cope
You sealed your heart away
But there is always hope
I promise that I’ll stay
Let me help, let’s begin
Let me learn
Won’t you let me in?
The days have betrayed you
You prefer the calm of the night
But every morning you can start anew
If you open up to the light
Do you long to be left all alone?
Set apart with a heart made of stone?
Betrayal has made you lose faith
You’re blind to love, you can’t see
But I know it’s never too late
Just try to give your trust to me
There’s a light that you shine
There’s a love, I see it in your eyes
All the dark, let it go
You’re not alone…
